Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good not great What I love about the YA genre is its ability to create fantastical situations without taking away from great characterization. And something that I loved most about Blackout by Robison Wells was the character growth that happened right along with the plot growth. It was trill ride that I loved reading. I will admit that I have never read anything by Robison Wells before. I have Variant on one of my many bookshelves but I have never gotten around to reading it. But I am so glad I picked up his latest book because darn, was it good. The characters were my favorite aspect of the story because they were never overdone to the point where you question their actions. I feel that in YA, some authors have a need to create the perfect main character, especially if there is a love interest. But in Blackout the character were real, and dealt with horrible situations in a very real teenager way. By freaking out and then thinking rationally after. The growth not only in the character but also the plot was great. I did love that Robison took a genre that is beloved--Super powers in teenagers--and turned it into something that is familiar to this generation--terrorism. although I did find that the plot lagged in places, I found myself really intrigued by the characters and what they meant to the overall story line. We get a glimpse of this throughout the book, but there are still many questions that need to be answered. And I seriously cannot wait until the next book comes out so I can continue this awesome story.
