CBR III Review #153: 13 Days until Midnight by Patrick Carmen

CBR III Review #153: 13 Days until Midnight by Patrick Carmen

Now that was a strange ending.

Jacob Fielding survived a car accident that killed his foster father.  Jacob isn't sure how he survived and how he managed to walk away with no injuries.  Right before the accident Mr. Fielding tells him he is indestructible. Jacob writes the same phrase on one of his friends cast and right after he writes the phrase she gets into a horrible accident, but is able to walk away without a scratch.  Jacob and his friends appeared to have received the gift of immortality. But will they stretch it's limits while they try to test it? And if you repeatedly deify nature what can happen?  Only one of them can possess the power at once so what happens if their is a miscommunication about who currently holds the power.

The novel reminded me a lot of that show that went off the air "No Ordinary Family". What happens when normal people suddenly discover they have a super power?  I wasn't expecting too much out of this novel but I really enjoyed the first half where the kids are testing the limit to being indestructible and their search for the powers origin. Then it went downhill. I didn't really enjoy how it ended and I disliked the "origin story" that they discovered.   I also don't see why YA novels like to have their main characters betray their best friends for their first love.  It just makes the main character come across as a douche.  It was a nice change of pace to have the guy be conflicted, but apparently no one ever taught the poor kid bros before hoes (kidding).
