As usual for Westerfeld's books Zeroes is impossible to set down. After discovering they have superpowers, five teens try to do what all superheroes attempt: destroy all evil. Harsh words — even if they are true — divide them , but when Scam and his very convincing voice gets him in trouble with a drug ring, Bellwether, the self-appointed leader, decides to get the group back together. He calls upon Crash, who can destroy any technology, Flicker, who is blind but sees through other peoples' eyes, and Anonymous, who . . . well nobody really knows who he is. In this thrilling novel, superpowers — and friends — are a burden as well as a gift and the line between hero and zero is very thin.

Description


X-Men meets Heroes when New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti to create a sizzling new series filled with action and adventure.

Don't call them heroes.

But these six Californian teens have powers that set them apart.

Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He's got a voice inside him that'll say whatever you want to hear, whether it's true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn't--like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren't exactly best friends these days.

Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group's "glorious leader." After Scam's SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the recue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. At the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases.

Filled with high-stakes action and drama, Zeroes unites three powerhouse authors for the opening installment of a thrilling new series.
