Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? by Liz Kessler
If you could have any power you wanted, what would it be? Super hearing, x-ray vision, flying, being invisible? One of these superpowers is given to Jessica Jenkins shortly after her 13th birthday. Her best friend Izzy is the one who discovers her power when she witnesses Jessica's arm disappearing in class. Izzy and Jessica are determined to find out how she got the power to become invisible. Their search leads them to Nancy, the woman who helped deliver Jessica. Somehow she and a doctor were working on a special serum that when combined with various crystals, give different superpowers. Jessica finds out that herself and two other classmates were somehow accidentally exposed to the serum when they were born. Now they all have unique superpowers which they will use together to try to stop the serum from getting into the wrong hands.
I wasn't sure if I was going to like the book, but the cover intrigued me. I am happy to say I did enjoy the story. The plot made sense and the scientific explanation behind why the serum worked on children and the stones, totally made sense. Jessica and Izzy were a great team, working together to try to solve the mystery of how Jessica could turn invisible. The other children introduced in the story were likeable as well. It left me wondering if there will be a sequel!
