The Magnificent 12: The Call by Michael Grant
This is an interesting tale of a 12 year old boy who is just medium in everything: build, brains, ambition and even in his life. Nothing outstanding. So why would he be told he's one of the Magnificent 12? And how can the guy talking to him be three-thousand-years-old?
This is a Katherine Tegin Books publication and they sent me an ARC for review. (Thank you.)
One of the most interesting twists in this book is that Mack's worst enemy, a very big bully, suddenly becomes his protector because Mack saved his life. That's real handy for Mack, because his life suddenly becomes very dangerous, leaving medium way behind...
It's a fast paced action story for young adults aged 10+, and there is enough humor interspersed to keep it from becoming too intense.
