My Review
The was a steady paced book. I was surprised I liked it. It wasn't something that I had to read in one sitting but it was interesting. I kept coming back to it, wanting to know what happened next. I liked Chase for the most part. He did extraordinary things but never really thought about it. It was just something he did. He was attention seeking. You do want to smack him around at this lack of understanding the motivations behind other people action especially when it is so obvious but then you remember he's a teenage guy (sorry fellas) and you let it slide.

The way Chase is with his father makes him a sympathetic character. His personality adds to his appeal. You can tell that the author is a football fan. He may have even played or wanted to play high school football as those scenes are waaayyy to detail. I kinda got a Al Bundy feeling. If you don't get that reference youngster I suggest you find Married with Children and have yourself a little marathon. Anyway, good read for YA fan about an unlikely superhero whose "power" isn't all it cracks up to be.
