Blackout by Deena Lipomi

When 17-year-old musician Leo and his 15-year-old scientist sister Jenny wake up in a ditch with pains in their hands, they wonder what happened on their drive home from their father�s house in rural Pennsylvania. Their only memory of the past twelve hours is of bright lights flashing through their windshield. Then the blackout.

Leo is content to chalk up the missing memories and throbbing hands to a concussion and nerve damage, but Jenny won�t let it go. Soon the siblings uncover clues that they stumbled upon a dangerous and illegal alternative energy project in the Appalachians � and that their father is involved. If they don�t discover the truth, Leo�s burning hands will destroy his music career before it begins, and Jenny will never know if her father is the mentor she's always trusted or a mad scientist who will stop at nothing for the success of his work. Not even if it means sacrificing his own children.

Loved this book. Read it in two sittings. The plot is new and fresh, and the characters are full of life. This book is written from both Jenny and Leo's unique point of view which adds lots more depth to the story. Even though they suffer a blackout, this is not your typical alien abduction story. Jenny and Leo are caught up in an all too realistic scientific-experiment-gone-wrong complete with total secrecy, illegal experiments and ruthless businessmen. Like I say, I couldn't put it down. Totally recommend this book.
