The Supernaturalist

From Eoin Colfer, author of the best-selling "Artemis Fowl" series comes "The Supernaturalist" the story of Cosmo Hill, who at infantcy was abandoned in "Satellite City", the city of tomorrow. But for those who don't have parents, or at least not any in the DNA tester it's a scary and dangerous place. Cosmo is forced to live at Clarissa Frayne Institute for Parentally Challenged Boys, a ghastly orphanage where the orphans are forced to test many products, like guinea pigs. Cosmo knows he needs to escape and when he sees his chance, he takes it. With nowhere to go, Cosmo is taken under the wing of "The Supernaturalists" a group of children who can see ghostly creatures, and are the only people that can stop these creatures from wreaking terror on the civilians.
This novel is a bit mixed up, he mentions stuff like video games and Health shows on TV but it repeatedly says he had never been out of the orphanage. So Mr. Colfer, please do some fact checking. I thought I was going to enjoy this book, I didn't. The writing style did not hook me in. The plot was hard to follow, and all the characters were weak and had no depth. A confusing, boring way to waste time.
