Lisa Duncan grew up on Tigris, where children develop telekinesis beginning at the age of five. By the time they’re pre-teens, their special abilities have peaked, only to slip away as they reach adulthood. Constantly monitored by adults, kids are kept in “hives,” forced into labor, and prohibited from going to school.

With the end of her powers looming, Lisa defies the system and learns to read. That is, until her teenage tutor disappears and she becomes drawn into the experiment of a scientist whose research will alter Tigris society forever. . . .

Timothy Zahn delivers a bittersweet tribute to what it means to come of age, face your fears, and even save the world.
