I give this book 4 out of 5 people. The reason for choosing people is almost everyone in the book is focused on the race of people. I only give it four out of five people because the book gets very complex because one girl can time travel and they do not explain with a lot of detail what is happening while she is time traveling. However, this is a thrill-seekers book and kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In this book there are four main characters, Dirk Tyrone, Keiko Tan, Mateo Rodriquez, and Nicci Golden. They each possess two things that are different from the rest of society making them a threat. Dirk is Caucasian and has the power to use his mental powers to control people. Keiko is Asian and can heal people with her hands. Mateo is Hispanic and can change into any creature his heart desires. Nicci is African American and can time travel or slow down time. These four are different not just because of their powers but also because of their race. The Merger made everybody look exactly the same because of racial discrimination. These four have to stop the Merger because he is stopping individuality. In doing so they meet up with a group of people called The Elders who share the same characteristics. They help the kids train their powers so they can eventually fight against the Merger.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy and likes a thrilling book with a ton of twists. This book is obviously fantasy because of the setting. The setting is in the future where almost everyone looks the same and some people have super hero like powers. The book has so many twists I didn’t fully understand what was happening until the very last page. This book had so much action and thrill I couldn’t put the book down until I was done. You start to really get to know each character because of how much they’re described in detail. This book is a very good book and will keep you thinking even when you’re done.
