Overview

"I did have fantastic hearing, mostly by virtue of being blind. But that couldn’t actually mean that he’s trying to tell me I have super powers, right? Because that would be ridiculous."

It wasn’t the “sex talk” he expected. Phillip Sallinger’s dad has told him he’s a custodian—a guardian—and his genetically inherited power is telekinesis. He’ll learn to move objects with his mind. Excited to begin superhero high school until he discovers he’s assigned to a “special ed” class for disabled empowered kids, he suddenly feels like an outsider. Bullied, threatened, and betrayed, Phillip struggles, even as he and his friends—calling themselves the Ables—find ways to maximize their powers to overcome their disabilities, and are the first to identify the growing evil threatening humanity. As vital custodians disappear and the custodian leadership is mired in indecision, a mysterious and powerful figure taunts Phillip, and the enemy is poised to strike. But what if the next “one who does all,” the multi-gifted custodian predicted to come, is one of the Ables?

The Ables is a fast-paced, captivating debut novel from Jeremy Scott, a bold new voice in fantasy and sci-fi, and already a widely popular storyteller as co-creator and narrator of CinemaSins, a YouTube channel that has amassed more than 3.3 million subscribers in under two years.

Being a fan of books in this genre, I found The Ables a very enjoyable read. Every single character is intriguing, and if you enjoy superheroes and overcoming struggles and devious insane villains, this is the book for you. Recommended to anyone!

It's a great book considering it's Scott's  first book! The writing in the beginning of the book is a little rough, but it's countered by a great story. And as the characters and plot develope, the writing gets better as the main character finds his voice. The characters are original and have clear personalities. It's a fun and highly enjoyable read, and once the story picked up, I couldn't put it down. I say if you have the time, give it a chance. It just may end up surprising you!

A tale about disabled kids having super powers... Why wouldn't you pick up this book. I have only one problem with it (1 sin), I have not heard any news of a sequel... But then again, it doesn't need one.

Good Read, if you can ignore the incorrect character discrimination label. On the whole it is a good book, most of the characters are well thought out and the plot defiantly keeps you guessing about what’s coming next. The one main issue I have with the book it the character called Donny. He is supposed to have Down syndrome, but if the author had not have kept stating this you would not have any clue that down syndrome was his disability, The character description sounded more like autism. If the author wanted to include learning disabilities he should have researched them beforehand.

It's definitely not great but it's definitely not horrible either. There are quite a few plot and character inconsistencies, but thr book is good when you don't want to think too much. Relaxing read, but I wouldn't highly recommend it.
