Spinner by Michael J. Bowler *review
Posted by brriske
In a wheelchair since birth, his freakish ability has gotten him kicked out of ten foster homes since the age of four. Now saddled with a sadistic housemother who uses his spinning to heal the kids she physically abuses, Alex and his misfit group of learning disabled classmates are the only ones who can solve the mystery of his birth before more people meet a gruesome end.
They need to find out who murdered their beloved teacher, and why the hot young substitute acts like she’s flirting with them. Then there’s the mysterious medallion that seems to have unleashed something malevolent, and an ancient prophecy suggesting Alex has the power to destroy humanity.
The boys break into homes, dig up graves, elude kidnappers, fight for their lives against feral cats, and ultimately confront an evil as old as humanity. Friendships are tested, secrets uncovered, love spoken, and destiny revealed.
The kid who’s always been a loner will finally learn the value of friends, family, and loyalty.
If he survives…
Foster kid,15 year old Alex, is special in more ways than one. He does what he calls “spinning”, healing people’s ailments both physically and emotionally. But he can’t “spin” his self, he has spina bifida and is in a wheel chair. Along with his friends from his special ed. class, Father Pat and the man who wants to adopt him, they try to figure out who and why people Alex has “spun” are being murdered. Is Alex the killer? Somehow he’s involved but how? And why can’t he remember what happens when they die?
Appropriate for the under 18 crowd and adults alike I give this 5 fangs and will definitely be interested in reading more from this author.
