The ABLES

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?
 
The Ables is a fast-paced, captivating debut novel from Jeremy Scott, a bold new voice in fantasy and sci-fi, and already a widely popular storyteller as co-creator and narrator of CinemaSins, a YouTube channel that has amassed more than 3.8 million subscribers in under two years.

  1. Original and Great The Ables was a extremely well thought out and executed novel. The book had me captivated the whole time I was reading it. Part of the reason it was so great was how original it was. The main characters all of whom have a disability of some form or another made the telling of this story very unique. I don’t know about you but a disabled superhero story is something I have never read before. I have read a lot of superhero books before and while this may not be the absolute best of all of them it…

  2. A good idea, and even better execution. I gave The Ables a five star review because I truly enjoyed the story, and think that it was an original and well executed idea. However, the finished product was difficult to read at points, and my immersion was broken at several points throughout the journey. If you are looking for a fast, well written, and original young adult story about truly ‘handicapable’ children, then The Ables is for you. Just be prepared to scratch your head over formatting, chapter design, and the…

  3. Originality in Writing Jeremy has done wonderful things with attacking the world of movies for fun through CinemaSins and takes his similar creativity and applies it to a wonderfully unique story about super heroes that is endearing, captivating, and a fresh read. Truthfully, the book shines in being different (much to the classification of the story itself!) – it’s not your typical teen drama or high-powered action book – if you are looking for what Michael Bay’s idea of “reading” is, look elsewhere.
