Slower by Ted Shepherd
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Slower is a young adult science-fiction novel about an average fourteen year old boy named Emit Friend. After realizing he holds a special power to slow time, he first uses it to have some fun, as any normal kid might do but soon he starts noticing odd things about other people around him. It becomes clear that Emit isn't the only one wielding such power and that some of them may be doing things more sinister than impressing their friends with it.
Author Ted Shepherd has written a fantastic book for young readers that will keep them entertained as well as get them thinking about things like history, time travel and even politics. Slower, despite the title, is a fast paced fantasy packed full of humor, engaging characters, well placed action, and a satisfying ending that leaves the reader hoping for a sequel. This is going right to my 14 year old's Kindle.
