This book was an enjoyable read though at times the events that happened seemed too coincidental. The story was told in a very choppy style where nothing really seemed to flow. It seemed as if the characters just left and all of a sudden they had enough trust to give away their biggest secrets. Everything in this book just seemed to pop out of nowhere so the pieces just didn't fit together very smoothly.
The story line was very entertaining however and it keeps you wanting to know more. I think

This was a fun book! Teens with super powers cross paths with the mysterious 'Silence'. Interesting and fun concept... I thought that this was a great read and I found myself drawn to Kathy, Aaron, Robert, and Linda. Disappointments if there were any include more backgound on the teens, like how they found about their powers and each other. Starting this book I felt like I had just picked up a comic book in the middle of a big story arc. Beyond that I still will keep this book on my 'to keep' bo ...more

This is a great start to a fantastic book series! This book is about a bunch of kids that have special powers and want to be superheros and help fight against crime. It is a great book and anyone who likes adventure and alot of action should definetly read this book!

I have some mixed feelings about this book. CODE NAME: SILENCE is the story of four friends with super powers who help catch a criminal.

That being said, I think there were a few things that could have been worked out a little differently.

Firstly was the lack of explanation for the powers Kathy and her friends have (especially Linda’s). Now, I

Teens with super powers cross paths with the mysterious silence.Disappointed that there wasn,t more background on the teens like how they found each other or how they found out what there powers were and how to use them. When i started reading this book it felt like i was in the middle of a comic book series and i had missed the first few books other than that it was a fun read.
