Charlotte 'Charlie' Gordon wants nothing more, than to be a normal girl. But having a near death accident as a child, she finds out that she has powers. After accidentally electrocuting her sister and blowing up her mother's kitchen, she suppresses her powers for ten years. Unknowing that there are more people like her out there. A lot more.

That is until a secret group of them try and hunt her down because of her unusual abilities. Forcing her family into hiding, she goes on the run. Having to learn about her powers and her past, she meets many new friends along the way. But you can't run forever. She learns that someone has betrayed her to the very people she is running from.

Out of no where as a child Charlie devolved powers and has been trying to keep a grip on her powers for about 7 years now.Charlie is just trying to live a normal life without accidentally blowing anything up.However her powers seem to be getting stronger and after almost blowing up a classroom she heads home and to the doctors.Soon she realizes that something is amiss and goes on the run trying to figure out her power and decide who she can trust.

The best thing about this book was the story line was really unpredictable. I couldn’t predict what’s going to happen next and that kept me invested in the story.Even though there were a few slow part that felt like they were dragging.The cast of charecters where wonderful and learning about everyone powers was interesting.
Charlie is the main protagonist and I enjoyed her character she's a girl who wants nothing more than to be normal and to keep others safe even if that means leaving her loved ones. I liked that Charlie never relies on the guys in her life  to save her especially. 

At first I really wasn't sure about the story but it quickly drew me in and kept me reading.There are a few grammar issues that are quite obvious but other than that I enjoyed the book.With enough attention I think people would become fan of The Lazarus Children books.4/5
