Jennifer Mah has a secret — a big one.

She can move objects with her mind. She knows if people learn about her abilities, she would be taken and subjected to horrible experiments. That’s why she and her father have been living in a new city under false identities. But when Jennifer uses her powers to save someone from being hit by a car, she exposes herself to the authorities. Her father is taken away by agents and Jennifer has to find a way to save him without getting caught herself.

CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“About many different situations that test one’s willpower...A good read. Highly Recommended.”
Kirkus Reviews
“Engrossing from the very first page...With convincing dialogue, ably handled character development, and a strong female Asian lead, this book would be a great addition to any young reader’s library.”
