Book Summary:

What’s a cruel ex-boyfriend compared with a government organization out for your powers?

Aaron and Anna have fallen in love, despite an ex that threatened to tear them apart. When they start zapping evil cheerleaders with their powers over electricity, they’re forced to break off their relationship to avoid attention from the Agency. A part of the Department of Defense that studies Pairs like Aaron and Anna, the Agency is searching for the source of the Pairs’ powers and doesn’t care who gets in the way.

Anna tries to blend in at the camp where she and Aaron start working for the summer, but it’s not easy when touching your not-boyfriend invites lightning storms. Only weeks pass before a dark secret and an attack from the Agency tear apart their temporary place of refuge. If the camp isn’t safe, where is?

Momentum is book two in a series of Young Adult supernatural books by Emily Ann Ward. This book begins where book one ends.

I enjoyed this book a bit better than book one. The relationship between the two main characters, Aaron and Anna, grow closer as their powers grow stronger. You are introduced to a new set of characters, which were well developed, and the secret branch of the government known as “The Agency” show their true colors in this book. I thought there was more action, more knowledge about the “Paired” and “The Agency” and enjoyed all of these developments.

If you enjoy reading about teens that have been connected since birth, their growing love for each other and that they and others have supernatural powers (and are being hunted down because of these powers) then you will enjoy this book. I’d recommend reading the first book in this series prior to reading this book.
