Clio Kaid may be 17 and just beginning the last summer before her senior year, but her life is anything but typical.

Follow Clio and the other teens as they develop fantastic super-abilities, forge new friendships, and find love as they search for answers.





“Try again and I’ll tell you if it’s working,” Jack suggested.“Yeah,” Garrett rocked up and down on the balls of his feet, anxious to see the special skill Jack had told him about.

Miranda and I looked at each other, took a deep breath, and focused on disappearing. Again, I saw and felt nothing, but knew we’d done it by Garrett’s amazed, “Whoooaaa.”

She nodded demurely, not thrilled about putting on a show, but also wanting to make sure she’d be able to perform on command if she had to.

And if Miranda and I thought we’d impressed him, Bliss’s transformation totally blew Garrett’s mind. “I think I’m…stupid-fied.”
