To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey seems like an ordinary school boy. Starting from being bullied, to having his mother kidnapped, to having to suffer torture, and a never ending list of stuff, this kind-hearted boy has to deal with a lot. He does have one unique power, he can absorb, control, and give electricity, but evil scientists which gave him that power are trying to capture Michael to learn about his power, so they can use it. These scientist work for a board of people (that have lots of money) that don’t know about these scientist evil plans and are supporting them with money, supplies, and armies. Michael finds out that there are sixteen others like him and will try to overtake the scientist with some of them while a few are brainwashed to support the scientist’s side. Can Michael make it through or will he fail trying?
