Jack, Nicole & Aubrey live in a small Utah town. Life seems simple and protected even though there have been terrorist attacks around the United States. Then one night while all the teenagers are at the prom there is a mass round up of all the teens by the US military.
Jack can read minds, Aubrey can disappear and Nicole can influence anyone to like her. They each thought they were the only one with a super-power until now!
It seems there is a virus that is spreading and once infected you grow some sort of power. Some powers are more powerful than others making some of the teens very dangerous. These teens are being called Lambdas and the government wants them all quarantined now!
The military wants to use those powers to find and attack the terrorists but how do you tell the good guys apart from the bad guys? Will the government be able to use them to attack the terrorists are will the evil teens infiltrate the camps and make it so no one can tell who is the good guy and who is the bad guy?
Once more Robison Wells writes a great book leaving you hanging and waiting for book #2.
