The Power

I’m really torn here. The idea is pure brilliance. Like, I hope they make it a television show. But I felt like the writing could be better. Suddenly, teenage girls discover this new power inside them… with a flick of their fingers, they can send a jolt of electricity.. hurting, even killing others. The whole world goes into chaos. It alternates between the stories of an ambitious politician + her daughter, a down and out girl from London, a foster child who runs away, and a Nigerian boy who leaves home to document it all. I loved the story, I loved the feminist angle and the way that gender roles end up totally reversed.
