Wicked Cool Overlooked Books

This month's Wicked Cool Overlooked Book is Nigel Richardson's YA title The Wrong Hands.

I chose this one to remember for several reasons, including:

--It's deeply weird. In a good way.

--It really stays with you. I reviewed it over a year ago, and Graham's adventures after someone witnesses a secret ability (and, as he sees it, disability) are as interesting as they were then.

--The narration is masterful. Graham doesn't fully understand what is happening around him and neither do we--the readers.

Read this one if you're looking for something different and thought-provoking.
