The Kindling by Braden Bell

Homework? Of course. Crushes? Sure. But who knew seventh grade included superpowers?

Loud shrieks sliced the air, followed by the smell of burning cloth. Conner looked over in time to see Geoffrey jumping up and down, yelling and shrieking. Smoke poured from the seat of his shorts while blue and yellow sparks snap-crackle-and-popped all around the heater.

All thirteen-year-old Connor Dell wants to do is pass pre-algebra, play lacrosse, and possibly kiss Melanie Stephens. He didn’t mean to set anyone’s gym shorts on fire or make school lunches explode. But now that the strange powers inside him have been ignited, Connor’s normal teenage life is about to go up in flames!
This fast-paced novel is non-stop fun for kids and parents alike. With characters you can’t help but root for, a plot that keeps you guessing, and plenty of humor, it’s a guaranteed thrill ride from cover to cover!

My Review:

This book really was a thrill ride from cover to cover! I love fantasy that begins with everyday life and quickly turns into something quite different. The action was great and it was fun to learn about the Magi, their battle with the dark, and our hero and heroines' newfound powers right along with them. Connor, Lexa, and Melanie were great characters. I loved Connor's sense of humor and his "secret" crush on Melanie.
The Kindling is a great novel for middle grade on up. I am thrilled to find a book for my sons that's entertaining and a clean, uplifting read. I'm excited for the sequel.
