Poke: Book #1 in The Paranormal Poke Chronicles, by Dalya Moon

The Paranormal Poke Chronicles. Yep, I just read that. The first story, Poke, follows a teenaged boy, Zan, whose "secret power" is that he can read any girl's secrets if she "pokes him" by sticking her finger in his belly button. Apparently it's going to be a whole series. No word yet if Zan ever gets to poke the girls back. Heh heh.

The novel is about 50,000 words, which made me wonder if it was a NaNoWriMo book, but turns out it was actually written (or at least started) as one of those three-day writing frenzy contests. So well done, Dayla Moon, for rising to the challenge AND for following up by turning the original script into a short novel.

As for the book itself? Eh...well, it's YA for sure. The book description recommends it for older teens and adults but after reading it I'd say it'd be better suited for younger teens...and not adults.
