I kind of feel sorry for this book. The overall story is good, and I enjoyed it, but it has too many topical pop references for it to amount to anything. No Doubt? OutKast? Orlando Bloom? This book is completely dated, and not in a nostalgic way, but in a, what are you talking about, Mom? way. I'd weed this book; read it before it's too late.

lumayan deh..
ceritanya ttg remaja yang punya kekuatan super gitu. mirip2 X-men gitu. nah si Jessie Drummond nih keluarganya pada punya kekuatan super semua, cuma di umur dia yg 15 tahun belum ada tanda2 kekuatan super dia muncul gitu. trus pas dia pindah ke sekolah barunya, di hari pertama sekolah, tiba2 perut dia sakit perut banget, eh tiba2 kaca jendela kelasnya pecah. duar! heboh deh. sejak saat itu mulai deh keanehan2 di sekitar dia, dia bisa dengerin pembicaraan sejauh 5 meter, yang bisik2
Jessie is a "normal" in a family of superheroes. This makes her different from her family. Jessie and her mom & younger sister move to FL after the death of her dad. So now she's a sophomore in a new school. Things are going swimmingly until all the windows shatter in her classroom. Could Jessie be developing super powers?

Jessie is a cute character, and the story is imaginative--the new girl in 10th grade discovers she has super powers she can't control. In an attempt to appeal to her teen girl audience, though, the author really overdoes the cutesy slang dialogue. It makes all the characters sound like posers.
Boy, this was a fun book! Imagine dealing with all the changes that come with being a teenager and having to deal with getting your superpowers too! I'd love to read another book about this character. Jessie is very likable!
this is a funny book that has a touch of sarcasim, fantasy, and my favorite, fiction, while keeping it real by placing it in the present day.
All I can say is I LOVE this book! So I would give it a try if I were you!

Jax Abbott knows a lot about moving to new schools: she’d attended thirteen different schools by the time she graduated from high school. After college and graduate school, she worked for a while in the real world before realizing that all those years of people telling her “Oh, Grow Up” had to mean something. So she started writing books for teens.
