Jennifer Mah has a secret — a big one.

She can move objects with her mind. She knows if people learn about her abilities, she would be taken and subjected to horrible experiments. That’s why she and her father have been living in a new city under false identities. But when Jennifer uses her powers to save someone from being hit by a car, she exposes herself to the authorities. Her father is taken away by agents and Jennifer has to find a way to save him without getting caught herself.

This short novel is a high-interest, low-reading level book for middle-grade readers who are building reading skills, want a quick read or say they don’t like to read! The epub edition of this title is fully accessible.

“About many different situations that test one’s willpower...A good read. Highly Recommended.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“Engrossing from the very first page...With convincing dialogue, ably handled character development, and a strong female Asian lead, this book would be a great addition to any young reader’s library.”
