THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Six unique powers.
One bag of stolen drug money.
One bungled bank robbery.
One action-packed week.
Ethan, aka Scam, has a way with words. But Scam isn't just a smooth talker - he has a voice inside him that'll say whatever people want to hear. But when the voice lies to a drug dealer, it lands Scam in a massive mess.
Nate, aka Bellwether, is the 'glorious leader' of the Zeroes - a group of teens with flawed superpowers that they haven't quite got control over. After Scam's latest mischief, Bellwether pulls the scattered Zeroes back together, and recruits a new member to their team. And soon the Zeroes find themselves entangled in an epic rescue mission, with life and death on the line.
Full of cinematic, high-stakes action, New York Times bestselling Zeroes is a brilliant mix of a superhero adventure and heist film.
