The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses Book 1 was a great read. While I personally enjoyed it I feel I would have enjoyed it more when I was a young adult based on the ages of the characters. That aside I loved the way the author handled the whole powers thing with it being enhanced senses instead of the overdone flying or laser visions. Great read!
