It will be interestng to see where Jacobs takes this series. Great start, different twist on "super hero" theme.

"Life in a juvenile detention centre isn't particularly exciting for 15-year-old Shreve Cannon - until a twelve-fingered boy named Jack Graves becomes his cellmate. Jack's telekinetic abilities, which include hurling people across rooms, draw the attention of the mysterious mind-reader Mr. Quincrux. When Shreve begins manifesting supernatural abilities too, the two boys break out of juvie and go on the lam, desperately hoping to stay one step ahead of detection. If you like the X-Men, be sure to check out this 1st suspenseful entry in the Twelve-Fingered Boy series."
