"If you feel something in your body that isn't right, hear voices that aren't yours, see things you shouldn't, know things that haven't happened yet...then keep your mouth shut. Stay low, don't tell anyone. Not your mother. Not your father. Not even your best friend. Because they will find you and they will take you."
Four years ago, Ryan Archer's life was normal. He played baseball with his friends, went to Haven Junior High in Los Angeles, and took care of his baby sister Sara when his parents went on dates. Then one day Alex Patton, Ryan's best friend threw a curveball so fast it broke the sound barrier and went through twenty houses. The same week, a fifteen year old girl in New York City burned down an apartment complex by accident...with her hands. In Washington D.C an eighteen year old manipulated twenty people to give them whatever he wanted for free. Each time a "freak" popped up...they disappeared with the help of INSIGHT. A secret division within the United Nations.
Four years later it's normal. Men in black armor with M16's and machine guns walking down streets. Kids screaming as their ripped from parents hands. They call the freaks "The Prepotent". After Awhile you get used to your friends disappearing. Ryan's fine with moving on in life, especially since he's normal, until Sara, who's twelve, starts ripping things apart and putting them back together flawlessly with just her mind. Terrified, he desperately tries to keep her secret. But they always find you...the Commandeers...the men in black.
Desperate to get Sara back, he assembles a team. Max, a hacker who can also see through walls. Leah, a girl who can manipulate electricity, Jon, a guy who can contort time. And Fae, a girl with the powers to either give or take lives. In secret they want to take down all of INSIGHT. But while they work on freeing The Prepotent, they find a bigger secret. What really happened? And Ryan realizes that he might not be that normal...
