Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
From bestselling author Karen McQuestion—a brand new, spellbinding novel.
Wandering the dark streets at night is Russ Becker’s way of dealing with his relentless insomnia and the angst of life. But that changes forever the night he witnesses a strange astronomical event, then discovers he’s developed incredible superpowers.
And he’s not alone. Three others in his town—sexy Mallory, arrogant Jameson, and mysterious Nadia—have had the same experience and acquired intriguing powers of their own. As if Mallory isn’t special enough with her good looks and high IQ, now she can control peoples’ minds. Jameson thinks he’s the coolest because he moves objects with his thoughts, and shy Nadia struggles to understand her new empathic abilities.
At first the four secretly relish their newfound gifts while keeping them hidden. However, things get serious when they learn they’re being hunted by an organization that wants them for its own nefarious purposes. Russ has always picked his battles wisely, but when the bad guys threaten his family, they’re about to find out they messed with the wrong teens. What transpires will change all of them in ways they never imagined.
Straight from Karen: I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the daughter of school teachers and the second of four girls. Later I married Greg McQuestion, which gave me a really cool last name and (eventually) three kids.
I’ve wanted to be an author since third grade when my teacher, Mrs. DiFrances, read my short story aloud to the class. It took a long time to achieve my goal, but I’m thrilled to say I currently have seven books with Amazon Publishing, two of them published in paperback by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
I love to mix things up, which is why you’ll find I’ve written novels for adults (A Scattered Life , Easily Amused , The Long Way Home ,), and two for kids (Celia and the Fairies , Secrets of the Magic Ring ).
Today I live in Hartland, Wisconsin, where you’ll find me happily sitting in my office typing away on my laptop as I work on my next book.
