Overview

smart, thought-provoking, and unique... readers won't want to put this eye-opening, explosive story down. -School Library Journal In a world of secret superheroes who protect mankind unknowingly, Phillip and his friends -the Ables- must overcome more than villains if they are to defeat the growing evil threatening humanity. I did have fantastic hearing, mostly by virtue of being blind. But that couldn't actually mean that he's trying to tell me I have super powers, right? Because that would be ridiculous. It wasn't the sex talk he expected. Phillip Sallinger's dad has told him he's a custodian--a guardian--and his genetically inherited power is telekinesis. He'll learn to move objects with his mind. Excited to begin superhero high school until he discovers he's assigned to a special ed class for disabled empowered kids, he suddenly feels like an outsider. Bullied, threatened, and betrayed, Phillip struggles, even as he and his friends--calling themselves the Ables--find ways to maximize their powers to overcome their disabilities, and are the first to identify the growing evil threatening humanity. As vital custodians disappear and the custodian leadership is mired in indecision, a mysterious and powerful figure taunts Phillip, and the enemy is poised to strike. But what if the next one who does all, the multi-gifted custodian predicted to come, is one of the Ables?

smart, thought-provoking, and unique... readers won't want to put this eye-opening, explosive story down. -School Library Journal The heroes of this wildly inventive and unpredictable superhero epic don't want to be ignored, or pitied, or placed on a pedestal. They want what all of us want: The chance to forge their own destiny. The fictional world The Ables inhabit struggles to admit it needs its team of Special Ed heroes. But it does, and I would say our pop culture landscape (and, you know, your bookshelf) needs them even more. -David Wong Executive Editor of Cracked.com and NY Times Bestselling Author
