Publisher's Summary

Ryan wakes up to find his contractor dad building walls to turn their big old house into a duplex. The family that moves into the other side includes Bizzy Horvat, the pretty girl he has a crush on at school. Bizzy claims her mother is a witch with the power to curse people with clumsiness or, in Bizzy’s case, astonishing beauty. 

When a bee gets caught in Bizzy’s hair, Ryan acts so quickly and radically to save her from getting stung that he attracts the attention of a group of micropotents - people with micropowers. He soon realizes that Bizzy and her mother also have such powers. It becomes Ryan’s job, with the help of the other micropotents, to protect the Horvats from a group of witch hunters from their native country, who are determined to kill Bizzy, her mother, and all the other “witches” - micropotents - who have gathered to protect them.

So much potential

As an experienced OSC reader I expect to have to really dig in for the long haul. I did and waited for that pay off. I hate reviews that give away that prize at the end, good or bad. However I will just say fear past this one. It has a interesting plot line that just never comes to fruition.

Classic card

A book that gets better every chapter. I’d like to hear more from this world. The reader is excellent but his deep baritone is occasionally confusing when inhabiting the lives of young teenagers. Orson Card has always had a beautiful sense of the challenge of becoming the best human we can become.

Delightful teen/YA story & reading!

I have listened to this audiobook twice to determine if the book is suitable to gift to my teenage grandkids. It most definitely is, in any of its editions. Orson Scott Card weaves an intriguing tale with his usual creative flare while maintaining real-world believability. And the narrator, Stefan Rudnicki, renders a sublime audio reading that conveys the emotions of all characters, young and adult, superbly.

great book

other than the ending which I won't spoil, and other than it hitting to close to home, this was an outstanding, amazing book, thank you.

Ten hours of monotone

Boring. The reader went on and on and on, totally without any excitement in his voice …

Well worth the read!

Loved the story line! Full of suspense and believable characters! Card scores one for the kids that aren't really noticed in this second in the series. It was well worth the read!

Well worth the time.

I absolutely LOVED this story. It is very well written and easy to get into. It was even better than Lost and Found.

Not up to the usual standard

This is a good book but it just fails to grasp your attention like most of Orson’s books usually do. I am still looking forward to where it goes but so far, a little lacking for me.
