Taemon has always known he’s a bit different. But in the walled city of Deliverance, where everyone possesses a form of telekinesis known as psi, being different is dangerous. Being different can get you labeled a freakling—or worse, see you banished to the Powerless Colony, where even the simplest tasks, like getting dressed or turning on the lights, must be done by hand. Taemon has learned to blend in, to pretend he’s just like everyone else in Deliverance. To pretend that he can’t send his mind wandering into objects and see exactly how they work. But Taemon’s brother, Yens, suspects the truth, and he’ll stop at nothing—even murder—to expose Taemon’s secret.

In this thrilling dystopian novel from newcomer Lana Krumwiede, Taemon must choose between accepting his life among the freaklings or fighting for the destiny he’s never wanted—and all that comes with it.

    " The reader is immediately drawn into a culture unlike that of our own where psi power is the means for doing anything at all. We are introduced to a young protagonist with an appealing personality who suddenly finds himself thrust into the middle of complex and vicious power struggles in his society who must make crucial decisions for the direction the society will take. The story covers a lot of ground in just 300 pages without seeming rushed or skimpy. That is, the people and places are well-drawn. "

    " I really liked this. It really was an interesting topic, but I can't see them making another one. "

    " I enjoyed this debut novel from Krumwiede, about twelve-year-old Taemon's experience living in a dystopian city where everyone has some form of psi, a psychic ability that allows them to manipulate things with their minds, rather than their hands. Those who don't possess psi are cast out of the City and called "freaklings." Taemon himself possesses some unusual psi abilities that he's usually quiet about; however, when an accident robs him of his ability to use psi, he's deported to the colony to live with the other freaklings. Surprisingly, he enjoys life outside of the City, but when he hears reports of mysterious disappearances and finds other evidence that life inside the City is not what he once believed, Taemon decides to take action. A quick, fast-paced, well-written read. "

    " This book was oddly compelling and captivating. Taemon, Moke, and Amma were endearing characters that you truly wanted to succeed. You can tell that a lot of thought went into both the storyline and the character development. Great read! "
