Review:Powered by Cheyanne Young

Maci Might's sixteenth birthday is supposed to be the day she's awarded Hero status. But thanks to a tiny anger problem and a questionable family tree, King City's elders think it's best if she doesn't join the Hero ranks. Determined to change their minds, Maci will break whatever rule it takes to prove she's Hero material. As her hair darkens and her anger grows, everyone turns against her except Evan; a childhood friend turned scientist who may be able to unlock the secrets hidden in her DNA.

When a villain attacks King City and her dad is held prisoner, Maci discovers a truth she refuses to believe. She may not be a Hero after all—but this time the Heroes of King City need her more than she needs them. And she won't let them down.

Powered is the first in a trilogy.

A look inside my brain--

Powered follows the life of Maci Might, hero in training. When we meet her, it's her sixteenth birthday and she is preparing for her hero examination that will determine whether or not she is hero material. 

When she finally receives her hero mission, shes more than ready, she just knows she is going to kick butt. But in the end she doesn't get her hero status and has to wait a whole week before she finds out if she will be made a hero or not. To make matters worse, everyone was expecting her to be hero because her father is the president and her older brother got a perfect score. 

I really enjoyed Powered and reading about Maci. She's an immature arrogant smartass. Not necessarily in that order! I loved her and her witty comebacks. She can also kick some ass, that's always a plus. 

The story was a little too slow in the middle for my liking. For a few chapters nothing happened and I got bored. But it picks up with some romance and action mixed in. 

Do you like a story about a girl coming of age story that deals with betrayal, love, action, and a crazy twist in the end? Then this book is for you! It's highly entertaining and fun. 

It debuts on November 28, 2013 and it will be apart of a trilogy.
