"Are you really a thief?" That's the question that has haunted fourteen-year-old Ezekiel Blast all his life. But he's not a thief; he just has a talent for finding things. Not a superpower, a micropower. Because what good is finding lost bicycles and hair scrunchies, especially when you return them to their owners and everyone thinks you must have stolen them in the first place? If only there were some way to use Ezekiel's micropower for good, to turn a curse into a blessing. His friend Beth thinks there must be, and so does a police detective investigating the disappearance of a little girl. When tragedy strikes, it's up to Ezekiel to use his talent to find what matters most.… (lisätietoja)

“Are you really a thief?” That’s the question that has haunted fourteen-year-old Ezekiel Blast all his life. But he’s not a thief, he just has a talent for finding things. Not a superpower—a micropower. Because what good is finding lost bicycles and hair scrunchies, especially when you return them to their owners and everyone thinks you must have stolen them in the first place? If only there were some way to use Ezekiel’s micropower for good, to turn a curse into a blessing. His friend Beth thinks there must be, and so does a police detective investigating the disappearance of a little girl. When tragedy strikes, it’s up to Ezekiel to use his talent to find what matters most. Master storyteller Orson Scott Card delivers a touching and funny, compelling and smart novel about growing up, harnessing your potential, and finding your place in the world, no matter how old you are.

This is an interesting book. I kept expecting it to be a thriller or drama, but it really wasn't. I kept thinking that there would be some plot twist, like you see in the movies, where the chief of police turns out to the be boss baddie. Or a baddie would pop up out of nowhere to chase the characters. It's not that kind of book, which I didn't realize until maybe 75% through. Rather this is a book about relationships and friendship. I believe it is a YA book, but some of the themes are pretty heavy, so I'm not sure I'd put in the hands of any really young readers. ( )

Another contemporary fantasy book by Card (my favorite genre from him), except this one has some rather dark undertones. It is a very good story, although it does get a little tiresome with all the characters having similar personalities (with the same witty sarcastic humor as many of his other books, which is something I used to enjoy more). I would definitely be interested in reading a sequel. ( )

What if you had a super-ability that seemed completely useless? What if that ability got you in trouble with the law because of your honesty? What if your super-power isn’t super so much as… annoying? Welcome to the life of Ezekiel.

Ezekiel is a finder of lost things. The things he finds have to be inanimate objects so he spends a part of his youth collecting hair scrunchies, pencils, backpacks, buttons and an inordinate amount of everyday items. of course, returning those items to the people who have lost them means that he finds himself in trouble constantly. How is it that he finds so many lost things? Unfortunately for Ezekiel, he ends up living the isolated life of a teenager who is thought of as a thief. The world has it wrong, but that doesn’t help Ezekiel.

When Ezekiel was young, he was doted upon by his mother. Sadly, she was hit by a car and killed when he was four years old. Of course, that changed Ezekiel’s life. But, more importantly, it was the beginning of his realization that people aren’t lost. According to Ezekiel people aren’t lost because they either know where they are, or they’re dead.

This snarky, intelligent teenager is living a very lonely life until he meets short-middle-school girl Beth and then a police officer who actually believes him. What if Ezekiel can actually find lost people?

Like all of Card’s writing, this book is peppered with marvelously sharp dialogue. The snark can get a bit over-the-top at times, but it’s fun. There’s also signature darkness that is often reflected in the younger characters in Card’s writing. There is some content in this novel that I wouldn't recommend for younger readers. ( )

A very lite fare for non-discriminating YA readers. Sure, it reads fast with some interesting and likable characters, but there's nothing stand-out about this. Snark, check. Minor superpowers so minor that they're MircoPowers, like being able to find lost objects? Check. Murder, kidnapping, and fairly dark situations for a couple of new teens? Check.

What are we expecting, really? A YA version of that recent defunct tv show called The Finder. Or back it up to the rather huge quasi-genre of psychic detectives in general, and you'll get a pretty good idea about the kind of book you'll be picking up.

Is this anything like early Card? No.

Is it okay for the general throwaway YA market, being pleasing and usual and cute and uplifting as a result of getting through all the dark stuff? Yes. I actually enjoyed it for what it is. Lite fare. ... And there's nothing wrong with this. Unfortunately, nothing really stands out about it other than the solid characters. ( )
