When agoraphobic Gabe and his outgoing nemesis Jessa go on a moonlit road trip to locate Gabe's missing brother, the two teens discover they are both hiding unnatural abilities: Gabe is a living lie detector and Jessa is a kick-ass powerhouse pretending to be a delicate diva.
Gabe's sole reason for searching for Watts, his overbearing younger brother, is to clear his own name: he's been framed for Watts' alleged murder. Jessa is after Watts because she is, well, after him.
They find him with Deacon, the twisted eugenicist responsible for their unusual powers. He encourages them to stay and join his "Family" where they'll be able to live openly as the genetically-modified freaks that they are. When Jessa and Gabe uncover the truth about Deacon's past--and what he wants for the future--they band together to stop him. Watts, however, might have other plans . . .
4 StarsThis book as an unique storyline, with loads of mystery and drama, fun and the characters are interesting. Gabe is an human lie detector whenever someone tells a lie, he gets symptoms of an allergic reaction. After his brother Watts mysteriously goes missing Jessa and Gabe decide to find him. Jessa and Gabe find out they have more in common than they thought. Jessa has a super power on strength, Gabe and Jessa compliment each other well. I initially had my doubts about whether I was going to like the female lead but she grew on me. I really liked Gabe and in the beginning felt quite sorry for him, always being second best to his brother.
