Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
My kids can hardly wait for th Maze Runner movie. Done in the popular post-apocalyptic style, the Maze Runner series starts out slow but quickly picks up speed with a first-book ending that will have you wondering what the heck just happened. The first three books are great reads but the jury is still out on the fourth.
The series featires 14-year-old Michael Vey, a high school student who suffers from Tourette’s syndrome and amazing electric powers. He soon finds out he’s not the only one with mysterious powers. The series follows Michael and his friends as they try to prevent a dangerous organization from achieving global domination.
