What if you discovered you had the ability to read minds? What would you do with that power? On Christine Carpenter's first day of her sophomore year at Thomas Jefferson High School she makes a startling discovery. She can hear peoples' thoughts. After convincing herself she's not going crazy, Chris must learn to control her amazing mind-reading ability. Using her power she quickly realizes her crush, the captain of the football team, is also blessed with a special ability. She is soon sucked into a world she never thought possible when two more of her classmates, and a teacher, turn out to have powers as well. What are they meant to do with their special gifts that can either help, or harm others? Christine soon finds out when a monster, lurking in the depths of her school, threatens to murder the student population. When it becomes apparent that the creature is someone she knows, she must decide whether to try and save him, or destroy the beast. If she chooses destruction, can she live with the consequences? Prologue February Sophomore Year I wasn’t supposed to be dead by the end of my sophomore year! I had plans: get a car, go to college, attend prom wearing an outrageously expensive prom dress. Faced with my imminent destruction, I saw just how unimportant all those things really were. I could hardly see in the dark room. He… no, IT was in there with me. They weren’t coming to save me this time, not after all I’d done to them. There was nothing to stop it from tearing me limb from limb. Why me? I asked myself for the thousandth time. Why did I have to be blessed with this curse? Because, I always answered, you’re just that lucky. School was supposed to be the safest place a person could be. That obviously wasn’t true of my school, not when things like that thing were crawling around in its bowels. Its low growl came from a spot by the door, my only escape. It was just toying with me. It could smell my fear. It knew what I was thinking. Isn’t that ironic? It was closing on me. Getting ready for the kill. Needless to say, I wasn’t ready to die. What fifteen-year old is? Still so much to do. I couldn’t take it anymore. I crawled out from my hiding place and stood, trembling. I never really thought of myself as a hero, but I really wished I was one just then. At least then I’d have the courage to take this thing on. I looked into its face. I was looking at death. Mine. The thing made a noise, a sort of chuckle. It brought itself to its full height. Then all went black.
