Super hero enthusiasts will like this middle grade good "VS EVIL BOOK MY SONS LOVED IT I WAS " evil book My sons loved it I was little less enthralled Pretty good The idea of losing your memory along with your powers was pretty interesting Also to future me Since I finished this book I finished all the BOB books It was very painful reading boring all the BOB books but I made it Now I can finally read what I want to read The entire list took me 4 months When Daniel Corrigan moves to Noble s Green the Safest Town on Earth he finds out why it s the Safest Town on Earth Children the Supers of Noble s Green protect the town Wen the third rule it all end at thirteen troubles Daniel he uses his detective skills to uncover the secrets of how the kids of Noble s Green get powers and how he can stop the Shroud from enforcing the third rule on his friends Daniel learns that you don t have to have powers to be a hero I liked this book because you couldn t put it down until you finished it It made me feel anxious until the end If you like mystery with some fantasy
you should read Powerless This is like Sherlock Holmes with fantasy Of all the books I should read Powerless This is like Sherlock Holmes with fantasy Of all the books I in the year of 2017 the best book I read was Powerless by Matthew Cody There were many other great books like All the Answers by Kate Messner The Maze Runner by James Dashner Framed by James Ponti and so many others However Powerless alone stood out to me The book Powerless by Matthew Cody is about a 12 year old boy Daniel who ust into Noble s Green Rather than being a perfectly normal town Noble s Green turned out to hold people all under the age of 13 who could conduct electricity fly turn invisible etc These people came to be Michael s friends However after these superkids turn 13 their powers are gone and their memories are wiped No one knows why but when Daniel arrives in the town the truth is revealed This book was full of action and was a very fun book to read I enjoyed it a lot and am planning to read the next two books in the series Super and Villainous Overall this book was the best book I read in 2017 was Powerless I absolutely loved this book The prologue is a bit throwing seems like the descriptive language got out of hand Maybe a bit overboard but once I got through it the writing was marvelous and very drawing Even as an adult I found myself my husband too trying to figure out the mystery My children 5 and 7 were uite intrigued by the story although probably appropriate for 9 13 yr olds There are many twists that kept us engaged Listened to this audiobook for uite a few hours while driving on a road trip and kept our minds alert enough to not notice the time My husband said the best part was that the hero was a normal kid without powers I loved how you really believed who the characters were For this to be a tweenteen story I felt the characters were realistic and had depth than stories usually for this age A decent detective story There were a few good red herrings and plot twists 45 This was so enjoyable and fun Yes I m a little bit of a sucker for superheroes but this was especially novel since the main character Daniel is the only non super in the book The characters reminded me very much of Nightmares with the same formula for the smart but allergy ridden best friend and tough and also smart girl best friend I m interested to see how the kids will handle the responsibility of their powers and learn aboutsolve the mystery of Johnny Noble I like Daniel and Eric and liked ho. Superheroes soar in this promising debut and they’re kidsTwelve year old Daniel the new kid in town soon learns the truth about his nice but odd new friends one can fly another can turn invisible yet another controls electricity Incredible The superkids use their powers to secretly do good in the town but they?.
review ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ô Matthew CodyW the mystery played out in Powerless Will continue on in the series Superhero chapter books for kids They re out there Sure they are Still I kind of feel like the wizarding trend Harry Potter started sort of took the steam out of any superhero tales
*we might have been privy to Generally speaking if a kid has magical powers in a book then there s *might have been privy to Generally speaking if a kid has magical powers in a book then there s lot of mysticism or magic surrounding the discovery The plain old I woke up and could lift a bus method of everyday powers is popular in comics but not so hot in written literature for young uns I do wonder why this is Maybe it s a residual distaste some people still retain for the superhero comic book genre Maybe it s the silly tights Whatever the case I feel like there s a lot of room out there for good middle grade chapter books about kids with super duper abilities Powerless by Matthew Cody definitely fills that void and ends up being a fun and original story about a kid who has to keep others from ending up like himself You know NormalIn the little town of Noble s Green there is a peculiar situation On occasion kids in the town will develop abilities far beyond those of normal kids Maybe it ll be super speed or strength or flying or whatever The point is these kids have their own rules in place to understand who they are And one of those rules is It Ends at Thirteen Daniel has ust moved to Noble s Green and though he has no super abilities of his own he befriends the super kids and determines to find out why it is that they all lose their superpowers on the night of their thirteenth birthdays What he discovers in the course of his explorations is a situation that has existed for decades and a villain of such sheer cunning Daniel won t know who to believe or trust nextFair play to Cody because this book has a killer opening Heck it booktalks itself Listen to this Michael wakes up and it s his thirteenth birthday And he s excited but it feels like he s forgotten something Something important Anyway he wakes up opens his eyes and then he sees them Pictures Pictures all over the room Pictures of him flying It wouldn t be so creepy of course if it weren t for the fact that they re drawings he must have made and he can t remember drawing them See The booktalk practically writes itself There are few things creepier than children s drawings when used in the right context The only problem with the opening of the book is that there s a little tidbit of Michael flying before this wake up seuence It would have been much cooler if the Prologue started as Michael wakes up sees the pictures has a mild freak out and gets on with his lifePart of what I like
about the book is how backwards the concept is Children sthe book is how backwards the concept is Children s abound with stories of kids coming into their power or magical skills when they hit puberty It s a big old metaphor of course but one that kids dig Puberty scary awesome newness So what are we to make a book where kids turn thirteen and suddenly their amazing abilities go away Well it s sort of the Peter Pan syndrome yes The idea that with adulthood you abandon the fun and imagination of your own youth Cody s even playing with this idea with the initial Michael seuence thirteen was the age when you started taking care of yourself when you started figuring things out Later when Michael and Daniel talk he says that he had to distance himself from his old super friends because they were still into kid stuff It works if you see it in that lightA good ba. ?re haunted by the fact that the moment they turn thirteen their abilities will disappear along with any memory that they ever had them Is a memory stealing supervillain sapping their powersThe answers lie in a long ago meteor strike a World War II–era comic book Fantastic Futures starring the first superhero Jo. ,
