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.

Review: I loved all of the unique powers in this book, and how they’re definitely not your typical ‘mainstream’ powers. My favourite character has to be Flicker, because first of all I adore that nickname! And I love how (view spoiler) I actually also really liked Ethan, with his voice. It was an interesting extra to him, added some depth. No clue how the authors came up with these abilities.
The multiple POVs were amazing, as per usual. The friendship and teamwork included in this book made me happy, and that countdown at the end! Wow. Definitely reading #2.
It was interesting because the book I read right before this one had a bunch of kids with powers as well, but they’re both on such different levels. Definitely a jump between middle-grade and YA.
