Circle of Five

Circle of Five - Jan Raymond Five students: the jock, the jerk, the princess, the scholar, and the autistic little brother set the cast for this fast-paced story. Brought together a la "The Breakfast Club" in detention, an "electrical storm" strikes during their punishment causing strange and mysterious side effects, from the ability to read minds to unparalleled strength. They must work together to figure out what is happening to them and why. Raymond keeps the reader guessing and I found myself unable to stop reading. Most interesting to me was how the author portrayed typical teenage struggles in the mist of the mystical circumstances they were placed. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a well-crafted plot!
