Zeroes – Scott Westerfield, Margo Lanagan & Deborah Biancotti
The Zeroes, they’d called themselves as a joke. Like heroes, but not.
A fast-paced read with a diverse cast, Zeroes brings together 6 teenagers with rather unique powers, from crowd control to crashing technology. Unfortunately, they learn that there’s a price to pay for power, as they attempt to navigate their way through life (and some superhero missions to boot) with their abilities that are often more of a blessing than a curse.
Don’t call them heroes.
But these six Californian teens have powers that set them apart. They can do stuff ordinary people can’t.
Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He’s got a voice inside him that’ll say whatever you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn’t—like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren’t exactly best friends these days.
Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group’s “glorious leader.” After Scam’s SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the rescue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. And at the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases.
Filled with high-stakes action and drama, Zeroes unites three powerhouse authors for the opening installment of a thrilling new series.
