Sixteen-year-old Jessica Mastriani knew she wasn't going to be able to hide her psychic powers from the U.S. government—interested in utilizing her special skills for their own devices—forever. But she never thought that she and Cyrus Krantz, the special agent brought in to "convince" Jess to join his elite team of "specially-gifted" crime solvers, would turn out to have something in common.
But when a local boy's disappearance is attributed to a backwoods militai group, Jess's goal—to find the missing child—and Dr. Krantz's—to stop a group of madmen before they kill again—turn out to be one and the same. Suddenly Jess finds herself working with one enemy in order to stop a far worse one. In an atmosphere of hate and fear, can Jess and Dr. Krantz—not to mention Jess's would-be boyfriend Rob—work together to unite a community and save a life...without losing their own?
