Thriller with superpowered teens has coming-of-age appeal.

Great!!!!!:)

I read this a while ago and loved it:) one warning though, there IS some swears, but not the worst words ever. Not as much swearing as Wells's other series, VARIANT. I can't wait to read the second one;)

More profanity than CSM Overview suggests

Blackout is a good read. I wanted to write this review to let potential readers know that the profanity content is actually several instances of: d***itt, h***, a**, and b****. I wouldn't call it excessive, but the CSM overview says there is no profanity, and that isn't accurate.
