The Samantha Granger Experiment: Fused - Kari Lee Townsend

The Samantha Granger Experiment: Fused by Kari Lee Townsend
Samantha Granger is always on her phone. One night she gets lost on her way home, coming arcoss some sort of crystal in a hole. After touching the it Sam has the full capabilities of her high tech phone.

Sam is a regular girl who accidentally becomes a superhero. I like that Sam doesn't instantly understand what happened. It takes her a little time to figure it out. Somehow 911 calls are being redirected to Sam's phone, located in her palm. She has no choice but to answer. To protect her identity Sam starts wearing a disguise. The only person who knows about Sam's new abilities is her best friend Melody. If anyone else finds out the scientist studying the crystal might want to study Sam.

I really enjoyed this, it was fun and well thought out. A great balance of funny, suspense and, action. This is the first book in a new series and a great launching point. I am looking forward to seeing what Townsend will do with Samantha Granger. ages 10up
