"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Loved the creativity and story-line. Just great imagination and wonderfully written, especially in creating the awesome personality of Josie. I admire how the author gives us readers a chance to see things through different points of views so you aren't always wondering what the other character is thinking. I really like that.
Thank you Tonya Kuper for sharing your gift of writing and for personally helping me get back into the world of the living ;) I never expected for this book to do that and quite frankly, it blew me away. Can't wait to delve into the sequel!
Decided to read this one on a whim, as I'm "not a YA reader." Except, apparently, now I am, if Anomaly is indicative of the teen superhero sub genre.
A science geek heroine? A hot motorcycle riding bad boy hero? Older brother's best friend romance trope? All my faves. And then add in the ability to do crazy stuff with your brain? Holy laser beams, Batman!
I think the thing that sold me on the super hero skill is that it's not free, and it's finite.
Going out now to get a t-shirt that says "YA AND PROUD" or something.
The idea of the Pushers, Retractors, and Anomalies are the true star of the book. They are plausibly presented (for fantasy/sci fi), and are far more interesting than the characters or plot. I wanted to like this book, and I read a lot of young adult novels, even though I am an adult, so it is not the genre that bored me. However I was bored by this book. Not underwhelmed, not on-the-fence, actually I-want-to-stop-reading-this bored. So why the three stars? Because it is a debut book. Because it is plausibly presented. And lastly because I loved the fantasy and sci fi references throughout. I probably wouldn't recommend this book, but just because I was bored does not mean that it was a bad book. I just didn't like it.
This is certainly a book for physics buffs, because it introduces the Schrodinger experiment into the mix as if it's the perfect explanation to what happens in the book. It even makes you wonder if the story doesn't have some truth to it!

Be warned, the review contains spoilers!
ANOMALY is fast paced, packed full of action, has great twists, and is built around a world I applaud Kuper for creating—completely unique and exciting (and all explainable by science!). I’ll definitely be reading book 2!
