Synopsis: "My mom had always told me - when you meet "the one," you'll know; they'll captivate your heart the moment you lay eyes on them. I had always wondered, though, if my mom's words of wisdom were finite - if they applied to everyone. Maybe those who had found their one great love were the lucky few, and maybe the rest of us would have to settle for less than earth-shattering."

Seventeen-year-old Kat Walsh is a Gifted - a human with paranormal abilities. With her mom a former Angel and her dad a dream prophet, it's always been in her genetic make-up to be extraordinary. Unfortunately for her, the world can't handle the strange or unusual. So when she slips up and uses her powers at her high school in Ireland, the entire student body treats her like a freak - even the ones she thought were her closest friends.

Broken, but hopeful for a fresh start, she allows her parents to enroll her in a boarding school buried deep within the forests of a small Colorado town. At Midland Pines, School for the Gifted, she feels as though she can finally be herself; she makes new friends and even has the attention of the most popular guy in school - Levi. Everything feels normal again... or does it?

Not long after her arrival, weird dreams of an alluring boy whom she's never met surface during the night, and the eerie, shadowy trees encircling their school seem to call to her. As these disturbing, yet enticing developments intensify, other bizarre occurrences happen - students and staff turn up missing, and mystery visitors leave gifts while she sleeps. With all of these other things vying for her attention, a desperate Levi has to fight even harder to keep her interest. But with the dreams of the attractive boy slowly captivating her heart, Kat has to make a choice - will she settle for 'great' Levi, or will she search for her elusive dream visitor, possibly stumbling across 'amazing?'

Synopsis: A fresh start – something Kat and Gabriel thought they would find when they left their pasts behind at Midland Pines High and moved to a compound for hybrids. Or at least safety from a witch seeking revenge. But now… that’s all changed. Now, thanks to a flirty hybrid hell-bent on winning Gabriel’s attention, the terrifying visions of another prophetic Gifted, and the strange and worrisome behavior of one of their closest friends, Kat finds herself fighting for things that had once come so easily, including her relationship with her soulmate. And now she’s afraid.

As Anna and I strode through the lunchroom, me confidently on my way to the usual spot, and her taking in the huge throng of students, I felt the need to explain the set-up. “Even though everyone is nice,” I began. “We still have cliques around here. Just not like the snobby, divisive ones you probably picture when you think of the word.”

She arched an eyebrow. “Okay…”

“For example – those with similar gifts tend to gravitate toward one another. Like your kind, the elementals.”

She tested the word. “Elementals?”

“Yes, that’s what they call someone like you, an elemental. It means you can manipulate one of the four elements – air, fire, earth or water.”

“Oh.”

“And the mind readers will all sit together,” I continued. “And the shape-shifters will all sit tog-

“Wait a minute,” she said, tugging on my arm to stop, her eyes wide, “…mind readers? Shape-shifters?”

“Yeah. Cool, huh?

Her eyes went distant with some secret thought and snapped back to mine. She leaned in with an urgent whisper. “So they can read my mind, like, now?”

I couldn’t help but laugh. “No, Anna, they don’t read your mind unless you give them permission. They block your thoughts otherwise.”

Her shoulders relaxed. “You sure?”

“Well… I guess we don’t really know for sure. But they teach us here to be respectful and use our gifts appropriately.” I jabbed her teasingly. “Why? You don’t want anyone to know that you’re secretly a pervert or something?”

“No, it’s just a little creepy to think others can read my thoughts.”

“I know. But you don’t have to worry here.”

   We started on our way again. “And our table,” I said, pointing to a table in the far corner, “Consists of mainly soccer players and me, Sarah, and whoever decides to sit there that day, regardless of what our gifts are.” 

     She stopped short again, mortification sweeping over her face as she took in the tableful of cute guys. I then wondered what made her more nervous – them, or the mind readers. “They’re all really cool, Anna,” I assured her and tugged her along. “And your mouth is hanging open.”
