Goodreads Synopsis:
Claire Helmsworth has extraordinary abilities just like her siblings Brian and Jenna. Their parents gave them these gifts at a very young age and for good reason.
Now the FBI and two unknown parties are searching for the siblings and their parents. The only problem is their parents are no where to be found.
When the FBI shows up at Claire’s work asking questions to her, and her siblings, things start to heat up. One phone call later and the siblings are on the run, each taking their own path to find out what is going on.
Will Claire be reunited with her brother and sister?
What happened to their parents?
Who is after the Helmsworth family and why?
Are the FBI agents being paid off, or are they truly looking out for the Helmsworth kids?
Find out the answers to these and other questions as you follow Claire through her adventure.

My Review:
I wasn't expecting this book to be so short, and usually I'm not really into short books, but I really liked this one. It immediately sucked me into the story and had me wanting to read more. It didn't take very long to get through, but it gave me everything I wanted out of it, and I want to check out the next one.
Claire, 23, lives with her younger siblings, Jenna, 21 and Brian, 16. They all have different powers, like telepathy and empathy, but they can still communicate with each other in their heads. I really liked the characters and the entire story. Although I'm not a big fan of viewpoint changes, I still enjoyed this. It's exciting and I didn’t want to put it down. Claire seems bored of her predictable life at first, but events start happening to shake things up a bit. I love the science part behind the story, explaining the gene therapy and the all the work it took for their scientist parents to get where they are. I can't wait to see what happens next. I'm definitely going to check out the next story.
