    1 thought on “True Talents

    1. Imo, a worthy sequel Maybe not as full of earnestly explored Moral Themes good messages as the first, but thrilling And the boys still have all their own personalities, their own true talents besides their psi abilities And they have their friendship And they have cause to encounter moral dilemmas and make choices So, yeah, all the good stuff that teachers liked in the first is here, but the adventure story mystery takes precedence.

    2. I didn t read the first book, HIDDEN TALENTS, but I caught on quickly that these six boys, Trash, Cheater, Torchie, Lucky, and Martin, have powers that complicate their lives and put them in danger Eddie, Trash, finds himself in some kind of horrible nightmare where his abilities are being tested against his will Come to find out, an evil opportunist is trying to harness the boys talents for his own ugly purposes We see Bowlder as a perfect antagonist with ample resources to destroy the boys fam [...]

    3. The book I read was True Talents The sequel continues from the first book Hidden Talents, the story of the six psychic teens who became friends at Edgeview A year has passed since Trash learned he has telekinetic powers and his friends found their skills too Cheater reads minds he hates it because he was always getting accused of cheating , Torchie lights fires he always catches objects on fire and causes problems , Flinch forecasts the future he can see whats coming so he flinches , Martin sees [...]

    4. I enjoy how every page is different One page is suspenseful then the next could be funny, each page varies Other than it being about a few kids with hidden talents, they learn about them throughout the story Trash Eddie was caught using his power and a evil group kidnapped him to find out about it His friends team up later on to help him His friends have hidden powers too, the thing that makes it interesting is that they all have different talents and they all learn to use them differently I d [...]

    5. I absulutely adored the first one, Hidden Talents , but this one was seriously lacking Their point of views for the stories changed too much and the plot was unbelievable than kids with supernatural powers I think for some insight on what happened after they left the school, it is good to read It gives you a little closure However this story just did not pull me in like I had hoped I really hope Lubar writes another one like he hinted in the AUTHOR S NOTE.

    6. The book is about a boy who has something special about him and his friends One day, he finds himself alone in a room which looks like solitary confinement After regaining parts of his memory, he sets out to escape this nightmare and find his friends before it finds them.What I liked about this book was the unique personality the author gave the characters The way he wrote in character made each protagonist so different from each other I always feel like I m there in the background watching each [...]

    8.

    9. I liked this book because I think it is cool that Lucky, Cheater, Trash, Torchie, Flinch, and Martin have talents, like lifting stuff with their minds, looking into people s minds, and making fire with their minds I also liked this book because it shows other talents like playing the bagpipe Because in the last book it only showed the talents I mentioned before the bagpipe.

    10. i missed the boys and was happy to see them return as a group it was like a little reward, seeing a glimpse of their lives after leaving edgeview, and how they were coping with their abilities enjoyable action sequence also im too lazy to write a full length review but mostly it was nice to see them work as a group and use their powers extensively than before.

    11. Long story short The consequences of having psychic powers starts to hit the group.This is a different animal from Hidden Talents We get the POV of various characters and the stakes are much higher It is less focused because of this but Lubar manages to tie all the threads together My favorite part of this book is that the boys have ambition, well most of them They are working toward a goal, they have a plan The great thing about the Talents series of which I hope we get another book so we can f [...]

    19. Sadly, this one didn t feel quite as well put together as the first book I loved that we got to know Trash , I like him, and I loved that he was interested in art and interesting facts and history I also loved that he s not too good , I like that about multiple characters in this series they re not too good , but, they re really good people The way this story plays out fills a little bit less realistic than the first volume, as well, but I think I can overlook that.My biggest complaint about thi [...]
