Control successfully integrates science, adventure and romance into one unforgettable read. Kang weaves a futuristic world where both crazy advancements in science and superpowers born from genetic mutations seem completely real. Zelia and Cy are complex and exciting to get to know, and a spark of romance between them rounds out this dystopian page-turner that will keep you wanting more until the jaw-dropping ending.
Zel thinks the worst has happened when she loses her father in a terrible accident. That changes when two strangers with powers no regular human could possess kidnap her little sister, Dylia, leaving Zel behind. Living in a safe house filled with teens who can do impossible things — and whom the government denies even exist — is Zel really safe? Zel may not know whom to trust, but she does know one thing: She will do anything to rescue Dylia, no matter the cost. (DIAL, Jan., 400 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780803739048, HC, 12 & Up)
