Daniel Corrigan #1
Daniel has moved to a new town to visit his dying grandmother. After a couple of days of living there, he figures out the town's huge secret--some of the kids possess super powers. The supers accept him as a friend in hopes that he can save them from the result of losing their powers, and all of the memories involved with them, on their thirteenth birthdays. Can he save them?
This was a really good book. I really like super hero books in general but the reason this book shined for me is that it wasn't from the perspective of the super hero. I also thought the villain was very powerful, mysterious, and evil. I give this book FIVE MONSTERS.
