High school sophomore Matt Pine always thought he’d grow up to be a superhero-after all, not everyone can move things with their mind. But he can only move small stuff, nothing big enough to matter; it wasn’t big enough to save his mom from dying in a fire five years ago. Ever since he failed that night, he’s been hiding from his Ability, and he’s come to grips with the fact that superheroes aren’t real. Now he just wants to get through high school in one piece.
But when a semi-truck smashes into a car right in front of him, and he watches the driver die, Matt soon discovers that the death was anything but accidental. The owner of the local auto parts factory, Seth Crossman, took the man out to cover up a defective product…and he’s not done killing yet. And since everyone else in town is too scared to do anything, Matt decides it’s up to him. That means learning to use this Ability he’s been hiding from; and getting some help from Phillip and Tess, who have their own overlooked talents. But they’re going up against brawn and bullets, so they’ll have to pool everything they have to keep anyone else from getting killed-including themselves.
