The Power (Used Hardcover) - Naomi Alderman
In The Power, the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool, a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature, an ambitious American politician, a tough London girl from a tricky family.
But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls and women now have immense physical power--with a flick of their fingers, they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, everything changes drastically. What if the power to hurt were in women's hands?
