The Power Club Kindle Edition
Some create darkness…or teleport…or fly.
Damon has what ordinary kids want: a power. Ords have what he wants: freedom.
If he joins a “special club,” he can use his powers more freely. But getting into a club isn’t easy, and joining one is just the beginning.

The main protagonist, a twelve-year-old boy, Damon Neumeyer, wants to belong to a Power Club. The club consists of children between the ages of twelve years, six months to eighteen years old. Each member has a unique special power. Damon wants to join one of these Power Clubs, especially a club in his immediate neighborhood.
The story takes the reader through Damon’s trial and tribulations, trying to prove to members of Power Clubs that he’d be an asset to their group. Damon’s special power consisted of him conjuring up a black, dense cloud, he called a dark-space, in his immediate surroundings.
A rogue group of people called the Liberators are a menace to the government and will touch the lives of ords and special people.
The author, Greg Gildersleeve, creates characters that are believable and memorable. His writing style is easily readable, creating suspense from scene to scene, chapter to chapter to a fulfilling and believable climax. The book is suitable for all readers from children (middle school) to adults.
Author Greg Gildersleeve does a good job of drawing us into Damon's life, his early teen trials, and sets the stage for what may come after. But the metaphors in this story, of simply coping with the first stages of growing up, are pretty easily seen, and Greg moves us through them all with a deft hand.
The Power Club should appeal to the YA audience and anyone else who remembers what it was like to be a kid.
