9 out of 10

Another great book by Scott Westerfeld; very much in the vein of Midnighters. The gang's powers all work best when they're in a crowd and that's such a neat idea. There's also some superpowers in here that I haven't seen before, like Flicker's ability to see through the eyes of a crowd, or Bellwether's ability to hone the connection of a group of people. I got a little tired of Scam and his constant screw-ups, but his mistakes drive the plot forward so it's easy to get through it. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
-------------------------
Don’t call them heroes.

But these six California teens have powers that set them apart.

Take Ethan, a.k.a. Scam. He’s got a voice inside him that’ll say whatever you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. Which is handy, except when it isn’t—like when the voice starts gabbing in the middle of a bank robbery. The only people who can help are the other Zeroes, who aren’t exactly best friends these days.

Enter Nate, a.k.a. Bellwether, the group’s “glorious leader.” After Scam’s SOS, he pulls the scattered Zeroes back together. But when the rescue blows up in their faces, the Zeroes find themselves propelled into whirlwind encounters with ever more dangerous criminals. At the heart of the chaos they find Kelsie, who can take a crowd in the palm of her hand and tame it or let it loose as she pleases.

Filled with high-stakes action and drama, Zeroes unites three powerhouse authors for the opening installment of a thrilling new series.

I just loved this story! I always enjoy unusual takes on super heroes and this one did not disappoint! The characters were complex and this book really showed that having super powers is not all it is cracked up to be. I can't wait to read number two, hopefully someone in the group has it.
