In ShockWaves by Suzanna Williams, a high-octane YA novel that clips along as fast as our thrill seeking free-runner hero, English teen and foster kid Lee finds himself tangled in a nasty web of kidnapping, terrorism, and explosions. Told in head-long cinematic fashion, ShockWaves is sure to delight fans of Alex Rider and I am Number Four.
When a new kid joins the foster home, Lee expects this experience to be very much like the last —- several items being stolen -— but Paige, the lone survivor of a tragic accident, turns out to be unlike any foster kid he's ever encountered. Their connection goes much deeper than mere attraction. They're connected telepathically, a connection that comes in handy when Paige is kidnapped by an IRA terrorist. Using every skill on hand, including quite a few Parkour moves, Lee rushes to save her before the terrorist can finish his sadistic plot.
I could easily imagine ShockWaves as a Hollywood movie (perhaps starring Alex Petyfer) because the action is fast paced, the dialogue is snappy; mix in a dash of love and loads of Parkour and you'd have something great for those hot summer days. Since I'm American and ShockWaves is set in England I did occasionally have some trouble with the phrases but that in no way hindered me from enjoying the fast paced plot. I hope we'll get to enjoy more telepathic adventures with Lee and Paige soon.
