Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones

When the MK virus swept across the planet, a vaccine was created to stop the epidemic, but it came with some unexpected side effects. A small percentage of the population developed superhero-like powers. Seventeen-year-old Ciere Giba has the handy ability to change her appearance at will. She's what's known as an illusionist...She's also a thief.
After a robbery goes awry, Ciere must team up with a group of fellow super-powered criminals on another job that most would consider too reckless. The formula for the vaccine that gave them their abilities was supposedly destroyed years ago. But what if it wasn't?
The lines between good and bad, us and them, and freedom and entrapment are blurred as Ciere and the rest of her crew become embroiled in a deadly race against the government that could cost them their lives.

I really enjoyed reading Illusive.  It is a super-exciting sci-fi story with a very original plot that has you on the edge of your seat the entire time.  Certain elements of the story reminded me of X-Men.  The story is very engaging and makes you feel like you are part of the story; the characters are realistic and you feel like you know them personally. I highly recommend this book to boys and girls ages 12 and up. Thank you to Little, Brown and Company for this great new book!

  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed this book, Lily! I really loved it - the comparison of X-Men and Ocean's Eleven (in the synopsis) is brilliant and totally sucked me in. Excellent review!
