Blink

The invisible girl's in love with the boy who talks to machines. But he's on his way up, she's on the run, it's hard to tell good from evil, and even the superheroes are incorporated. Not your everyday fantasy romance.

Melissa Thinks: Having super powers isn't always all it's cracked up to be. Especially when you're all alone in the world and a government agency is after you. The story actually switches off between two character POV's, Sol and Collin. They're two complete opposites in terms of their lives, but both are special: they have powers. Collin and Sol are both under the impression that they're alone, that no one else in the world has powers, that they're freaks. Then they meet and their worlds are flipped upside down. Not only are there more of them out there, but there's groups, agencies, of them: some good some bad, all looking for our two heroes.

I've never read a story like this. The plot was so imaginative and well thought out. You can tell that the author put a lot of work into planning it and creating all the major and minor characters. The character's powers are so different from others I've seen in movies and comic books. It seems almost like a published book, because it's so well written and edited. The grammar is wonderful, the prose is wonderful, the characterization is wonderful. I absolutely love this story.
