BOOK SUMMARY

As an orphan, all Catherine “Cat” Langtree ever wanted was a home of her own. But one thing always got in the way. Her ability to move things with her mind. So, when her adoptive father sends her away to New Haven, a boarding school half way across the country, it’s pretty clear that her dream is not going to come true. It doesn’t get any better when the most popular girl in school, Jennifer Talbott, decides to make her the prime target for bullying. Cat soon realizes she has more to fear than simply not fitting in. She can’t control the power that races through her. And when it comes out to slam a locker door in Jennifer’s face, she realizes that the danger isn’t just in being discovered…it’s in hurting someone. Everyone else thinks that it was an accident. But someone knows the truth. His name is David Grant. And he claims to want to help. As David and Cat get closer, the incidents begin to pile up threatening the new home she has quickly come to love. But David has secrets too. And when David takes Cat home to visit his family, she learns that she is not the only one who has this uncomfortable gift. Noah Grant, David’s older brother, has been struggling with the same power for years. Being discovered is not an option for Noah. It happened once when he was taken into a government branch who specializes in training people with certain gifts. Gifts that the government would like to use as weapons. He escaped, but his capture sent the entire family into hiding. When Cat discovers that Noah has the same power she does, she begs him to help her learn to control it. As Noah begins to help Cat understand and control her power, Cat realizes that her power isn’t the only danger they face. She’s getting close to Noah. Too close. And when David’s own terrible secret rises to the surface, she realizes that nothing is what it seems. But will Cat choose a life she knows with David or a life she can’t control with Noah?
