"In "The Power," the world is a recognizable place: 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."--

Power doesn't care about its owner, human do it because we can.

Good construction (convoluted, intriguing), I was captivated mostly. Gender-based violence, so repulsive to become unbearable under the influence of "Glitter", ended up revolving around a philosophical agenda of human race evolution, which gave me some aha moments, yet to off me a clear view of things in a mixed bag.
I'm for Roxy, Tunde, and Jocelyn who were more than victims and protagonists. I'm not sure of Allie (Mother Eve) and Margot (the opportunist?). Tunde, the only one who record/witness the history truthfully, is male.
Usage of realistic social media across the current world demography made the fantasy plot believable.
