Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans

Michael Vey seems like a normal kid.  But is he?  He has a super powers; the power of electricity. He is sort of like an eel. No one knows this besides his best friend Ostin, but recently a girl named Taylor told him she has powers--the power to reboot people, which makes people black out for a second or two. Together Mike, Ostin, and Taylor form a club called The Electoclan . Then Mike s mom and Taylor get kidnapped, and Mike has to go on a quest to save them. On the quest Mike finds out a horrible secret that his Mom has kept hidden from him for many years.
I thought this book was excellent. It has everything a book should have action and humor. An example of this is on page 311, Wade hit first, wrapping his arms around the guards legs, while Jack knocked him over . The main character is a great role model. He is brave, strong, and willing to risk his life to save his family and friends. I think that this would be a great addition to your bookshelf. This reminds me of the book Hero written by Mike Lupica. It is also about a boy that has superpowers. I recommend this book to anyone 12 years  and up.
