Momentum



                Momentum is a young adult novel that is part love story and part supernatural adventure. Aaron and Anna are young and in love but have one major problem: they both have supernatural powers that allow them to control electricity, or they would if they could control them. A secret group are after them so that they can utilize these abilities for evil-doing. A fun time at summer camp turns into a run for their lives and never knowing who can be trusted. Overall I liked the story but found that it dragged a little up until the action started which, unfortunately, was half way through the book. Also I found that the reader is “dropped” into the story at the beginning and I felt, for the first few chapters, that I was playing catch-up. A good story if you can stick it out until the action begins.
