The Magnificent 12 The Call by Michael Grant

Until the 3,000-year-old man appeared in the boys' room, middle-schooler Mack MacAvoy had resigned himself to leading a middling, unexceptional life. That was before the ancient bathroom crasher identified Mack as one of The Magnificent Twelve, a group of talented12-year-olds who have been empowered the save the world. Before they can do that, however, Mack must track down these other special children and prepare to do battle. Action, magic, and laughs.

I read this because I love Michael Grant's Gone series but it was very middle grade. I like some mg books but with The Call the plot was very basic. The characters were just all right but the writing was still really good. I did like that the perspective switch between the protagonist set in todays world and set in a fantasy world. There wasn't any real character development.  It was funny at times but not as funny as the reviews says for me. It was a fun simple read and I may continue the series to see how it continues and because I really love Michael Grant.

5/10 stars
