Book Review - Freaks

About the Book
Weirdest. Crime Fighters. Ever.

Sheba, the fur-faced Wolfgirl, can sniff out a threat from miles away. Monkeyboy clambers up buildings in the blink of an eye -- then drops deadly stink bombs of his own making (yes, THAT kind)! Sister Moon sees in the dark, and moves at the speed of light. Born with weird abnormalities that make them misfits, these FREAKS spend their nights on public display, trapped in a traveling Victorian sideshow. But during the day, they put their strange talents to use: They solve the most sinister crimes. And in a dank, desperate world of crooks and child-snatchers, they're determined to defend London's most innocent victims: the street urchins disappearing from the city's streets.

My Take on the Book
I enjoyed this book. I was impressed with the concept, and the characters and their powers were fun, and I have to say that I loved that they were able to turn their abnormalities into powers used for good. While the author could have better developed the characters and allowed the reader to know more about the characters as a whole as this would have added a lot to the overall story. That being said though, I did enjoy the story and would love to read more from this author in the future because I did enjoy the book itself (even though I would have wanted more from the backstory of the characters). The story though was fun, but moved quickly, which is exactly what I am looking for in a book!
