An occasionally muddled, overambitious foray into an X-Men–like universe.


Reject High is the first book in a four-part young adult science fiction superhero series
After his latest fight, Jason Champion is sent to a rundown alternative school, nicknamed "Reject High." Fine by him, except a girl named Cherish died there under strange circumstances. At first glance, it's a suicide. But the girl's best friend, a Goth with an attitude named Rhapsody, suspects something different at work.  . .
One day during detention, Rhapsody shows Jason a crystal that turns her invisible. He tries one on and he jumps over a city.
Their classmates, Sasha and Selby, see Jason and Rhapsody in action and receive crystals of their own. They keep a low profile until Jason discovers they are being studied by people they trust.
With eleven days until Reject High is destroyed, Jason and his friends must dodge their pursuers, solve the mystery of Cherish's death, and save their power source from falling into the wrong hands.
The first installment in a young adult fantasy series, Reject High combines engaging characters inside of a page-turning adventure. Equal parts sci-fi, fantasy, and action-adventure, Reject High is written from the perspective of Jason Champion, a 15-year old teenager with rage blackouts and a penchant for getting in trouble,
