Via Goodreads: Ethan, aka "Scam," has a way with words. When he opens his mouth, whatever he wants you to hear comes out. But Ethan isn't just a smooth talker. He has a unique ability to say things he doesn't consciously even know. Sometimes the voice helps, but sometimes it hurts - like now, when the voice has lied and has landed Ethan in a massive mess. So now Ethan needs help. And he needs to go to the last people who would ever want to help him - his former group of friends, the self-named "zeros" who also all possess similarly double-edged abilities, and who are all angry at Ethan for their own respective reasons. Brought back together by Scam's latest mischief, they find themselves entangled in an epic, whirlwind adventure packed with as much interpersonal drama as mind-bending action.
I am super excited for this one, but the reason may be strange. Although I would be interested in this book anyway because I love reading books about kids with superpowers, I was absolutely obsessed with this anime earlier in the year, and the premise for Zeroes sounds a teeny tiny bit like the anime. Anyway, Zeroes sounds like a fun and exhilarating read and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
