I did have fantastic hearing, mostly by virtue of being blind.But that couldn't actually mean that he's trying to tell me I have super powers, right? Because that would be ridiculous.
It wasn't the sex talk he expected. Phillip Sallinger's dad has told him he's a custodian - a guardian - and his genetically inherited power is telekinesis. He'll learn to move objects with his mind. Excited to begin superhero high school until he discovers he's assigned to a special-ed class for disabled empowered kids, he suddenly feels like an outsider. Bullied, threatened, and betrayed, Phillip struggles even as he and his friends - calling themselves the Ables - find ways to maximize their powers to overcome their disabilities and are the first to identify the growing evil threatening humanity. As vital custodians disappear and the custodian leadership is mired in indecision, a mysterious and powerful figure taunts Phillip, and the enemy is poised to strike. But what if the next "one who does all", the multigifted custodian predicted to come, is one of the Ables?
The Ables is a fast-paced, captivating debut novel from Jeremy Scott, a bold new voice in fantasy and sci fi and already a widely popular storyteller as cocreator and narrator of CinemaSins, a YouTube channel that has amassed more than 3.8 million subscribers in under two years.

From Cinema Sins to Audiobook
The style of writing really makes it seem quite mature even if the age group is quite young in the story. It has this rich theme to it even though it's been used before, the genre I mean. However I can see opinions you have expressed in youtube videos and such really being played into your work. I like that. I wanted to listen to you because you did it. You have such a rich style that is very refreshing - you are my lemonade in the Summer. I'm only half way through the audiobook as I just had to write this before I forget. Whatever the outcome I know it's going to be well written and done.
From the very beginning it was the characters, how simple yet balanced they were. I love Super-powered people to have some downside and playing off that really is cool. It's almost like Heroes the TV - you know Hiro Nakamora that could control time but in the end the more he used it he began to develop brain traumas. I like the realness to the characters for me I could listen to this a thousand times and will still feel these characters are more real, more fleshed out than some large global books..*cough*Twilight*cough.* With their tofu-farting-melodramatic-sparkling characters that just were boring.
For teen drama - I like this. I like this alot.
His voice was smooth, calm but changed with the scene. I am glad that he did not change his voice to make it sound more feminine by keeping this neutrality to the characters voices I was able to create my own mental image of what they are.
Not sure I could answer this question actually, it's not my place to create a tag line. How would I be able to do that really? I'm no director, I am if anything a person that wants to become an author but has no real education to make that happen. This is one of those things I don't think it should have a tag-line - not really - just let me movie or book speak for itself. The more we give away of a movie or book the less it becomes if I was to say anything just keep it simple, nothing over the top. Perhaps - "Pardon me, donde esta la biblioteca?"
Though I am not an official reviewer nor educated enough to really break this book apart into small amount of details - which I won't. But I only gave it four stars across the board because it's as goes everything has sins be it a movie or book though I do want to make it clear I am judging this as a reader not a viewer. I expect there are things that could be fixed, could be changed or small things wrong but that doesn't matter not to me. I did it out of principle and I hope Jeremy - though I doubt he would read this or see it - would respect my decision.
I love your work, chap. Write more. The world needs to see your creations.
Fascinating superhero origin story
