From Henry, one of YA's preeminent voices (A Million Junes, 2017), comes another exquisite, genre-bending novel. Five years after a deadly explosion at the local steel mill devastated the small town of Splendor, Ohio, six unlikely friends are still united by their shared grief. As "The Ordinary," the group films amateur ghost-hunting videos and posts them online. They stumble onto actual supernatural phenomena when they encounter a being made of light who imbues each of them with a strange power. As the most directly affected by the being, Frances bears the burden of the most power: she can control anything that runs on electricity. Six main characters make for a large cast, but each voice is distinct and nuanced. Fast-paced and intricately plotted, the story rockets toward an unexpected, sublime conclusion. Though resting comfortably in sf, it becomes clear in the end that this book is about so much more. Topics like theoretical astrophysics, existentialism, and empathy will resonate with inquisitive readers. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
