I love this sixth grader’s review of Powerless by Matthew Cody. In part:
Matthew Cody’s characters made me care about what happens to them. His descriptions of the characters show that they are more than one-dimensional – that they are more then they appear to be.
Matthew Cody’s book is now high on my list of favorite books. Not only did the plot make me want to keep reading with its twists and turns, it made me want to want more after the book was over! This novel made me feel that not only did the characters have powers, but I did too! Powerless? No, powerful!
Hooray! Also check out this blog review, which calls Powerless, “a book with fast-paced action, rapidly shifting plot, and focus on superheroes and detectives. The book will appeal to both girls and boys, and is a great choice for comic book fans. With the lessons taught I think that it would be great it teachers taught the book in the classroom.”

My son loved this book. I haven't been able to get it back from him to read it myself!
I love when kids review books. My eight-year-old daughter once made a guest appearance on my blog and reviewed a book she loved. I'll have to get her a copy of Powerless and have her do it again. Sounds like something she'd really enjoy reading. 🙂
Best blurb about a book ever! That's a seriously adorable line. "Powerless? No, powerful!"
What a great review! I just finished reading POWERLESS and loved it!
My student wrote the review that's been quoted in this blog. I can't wait to share your post to show him the power of his words. There's nothing more valuable for a child than to see his work appreciated – especially by a complete stranger. Thank you.
