Growing up with special abilities is tricky business. It can be an amazing discovery to know you're not alone, but not when you're separated from the only family you've ever known. Especially not when your brother's kidnapped by an unknown agency who's trying to collect teens and young adults with unexplainable abilities.
This is a multiple person point-of-view novel that follows the story line. Each voice is clear, adds to the suspense, and moves it forward. Personally, I love these types of books because we can see all sides of the situation.
Did I choose a favorite? Sure, I actually totally dug Tyler. It might be because I understood him and where he was coming from. In my teens, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time a lot. On the other hand, I liked how sure he was. Not in a snobby way, but he had an inner drive to get to his brother and took risks without fear.
No spoilers, y'all know that's not my style. The plot starts out feeling very fantasy like and turns into a more sci-fi blend. But there aren't over technical terms or mathematically built worlds that make you have to reread a page 10 times. It's a very subtle shift, and it's a very light layer of the science fiction feel.
A SN: Loved the star children and the idea around them.
The hardest part of sci-fi and fantasy built on Earth? Suspending disbelief. There wasn't much aside from the abilities that didn't jive. The author was consistent in her characters that if there were flaws, I didn't see them. That can be tricky when you've got government agencies tied in too. But it worked for me.
Another SN: Aspirin. It's used twice in the book, and administered to the twins who are 16 years old. While I think it's a generic term in context (i.e. pain reliever). Children under 17 are advised not to take aspirin, and I'm not certain teens today would know to ask for it using that name. A nurse would never administer it to a child either because the risk of death is fairly high. It can cause fatality due to Reyes Syndrome. I point this out only because teens reading the book should know the danger of aspirin just like other OTC drugs.
Overall it was an excellent read, and I want to read more of their story. I'm fascinated by the Star children and would love to see more of that side of the story. This is one to keep an eye out for.

This is an excellent young adults' book. Tyler, Toby, Liliana, and Grace are high-schoolers. Eddie is in college, and Sarah is a military wife with a baby on the way. They are all Indigo Children. Children who have exhibited extra powers. When Toby is kidnapped, his twin brother, Tyler, joins forces with the others in order to bring save his brother and protect them all.
In addition to the spy/fantasy/thriller storyline, there is a strong theme of love, both familial and romantic.
It's hard to believe this is Ms. Buchmann's premiere novel. The story is quick-paced enough to keep you engaged, while providing all of the information needed to understand their unique situation. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to the continuation of this trilogy.

The only moan I have is that they are all too beautiful /good looking. Just once in a while it would be nice to read about a brilliant person who's 5ft in bare feet, fat & myopic! Or even just ordinary looking like most mere mortals are.
Anyway I'm looking forward to getting the next in the series & I hope it's as good as the first.
