Okay for YA. As always the villains are a little one-dimensional and predictable, but at least there are no problems with language or subtext. ( )

Jax Opus is a pretty ordinary kid except that he has a gift as a hypnotist. He is descended from two families noted for this ability. When it is discovered, he is offered a place at Sentia which is operated by Elias Mako who "has devoted his life to New York City education and is an inspiration to every single one of us." At first, Jax feels that Sentia is a waste of his time since no one will tell them what they are doing. He also has trouble getting to know the other kids there who are all really busy trying to be the best hypnotists.

Jax finally gets to the stage where he is making some progress when he meets a guy from a rival organization called the Sandmen who tells him Mako is not the benefactor to humanity that he says he is. When Mako convinces Jax to make a video to encourage all viewers to vote for Mako's candidate for president, Jax finally realizes that Mako isn't a good guy. But Mako has hypnotized Jax's parents and left a suggestion that they kill themselves which forces Jax to do what Mako wants.

Jax has to call on the Sandmen to help him get the better of Mako in an exciting scene at the presidential candidate's victory rally. I liked Jax and thought that he was a good kid who got into a bad situation. The story was filled with action enough to keep any middle grader turning the pages.

This is the first book of a three book series and will make readers want to get the rest to find out more about Jax and his abilities. ( )

this was my very first Gordon Korman book...dang what was I waiting on???? A fairly quick read, Jax has always thought himself to be a little odd. Little did he know that he has a long family history of hypnotists....on both sides of the family. Enter The Sentia Institute...a place for hypnos to fine tune their skills. Jax thinks the institute is great until he learns that things are not as they seem. ( )

The premise of this book sounded very exciting. At first I was intrigued but this excitement only lasted for about four chapters into the book. After this I was bored but I thought I would stick with the book in the hopes that it would get intriguing again when Jax arrived and honed in his skills at Sentia Institute. Which at first my interest did peak up again some but it was evident quickly that there was nothing really fascinating about Jax and his skill. Ok, maybe this is not fully true as this book probably would have been better if the rest of the characters were exciting, the dialect better, and there was heightened action. Yet for the younger readers they may like this book. ( )

Narrated by Ramon de Campo. Wouldn't it be fun to have powers of hypnosis and manipulate people to get what you want? With great power comes great responsibility and that's the theme here as Jax finds himself battling his mentor to save democracy. It's all very over-the-top and the adults are pretty inept, but it serves as a suspenseful escapist read for kids. ( )

There was something evil about the third avenue bus. It stood there, almost taunting, as Jack Opus came tearing along the sidewalk, dodging pedestrians, yelling, "Hey! Hey! Wait!"
