Summary: Twelve-year-old Kyle Camden develops greater mental agility and superpowers during a plasma storm that also brings Mighty Mike, an alien, to the town of Bouring, but while each does what he thinks is best, Kyle is labeled a villain and Mike a hero. 192 p., Scholastic.
I thought this was a very fun and interesting book, although not a Mock Newbery winner. I don’t think that it would appeal to all age groups in the Newbery criteria, just younger kids. However, I liked reading about a villain character, from their point of view.
