Gage Hughes was left on the doorstep of his adoptive family when he was just 4 years old, with instructions to keep his superhuman abilities a secret. At 17 years old, he's able to bench press a tractor, move objects with his mind and leap over 60 foot trees. He's hidden in plain sight as a nerd who can't cross a room without tripping. (Although it's not as much of an act as you would think.) He's also completely in love with Allie Newfield, who has no idea who or what Gage is. She only knows that he’s her personal goof.
Gage is trying to get the nerve up to ask her to the school dance when Lucas Black rides into town. With his Nordic God/Rock Star looks, his cool car and his bad boy attitude, Lucas seems to have taken an interest in Allie.
Soon, Gage discovers someone is stalking Allie, someone who is as powerful as himself, if not more so. He thinks it might be Lucas, but Lucas isn't there to hurt Allie or her family. He came to Perfection for one reason only.
To kill Gage.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
This book was really intense and heart-racing!
My favorite character is Gage because he is really sweet, powerful and kind. He cares about Allie and protects her. She understands him and vice versa.
My favorite parts are when Gage spends time with Allie because he cares about her. When I read the scenes with him being nice and comforting her, it feels me with a good type of empathy and compassion.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes drama, secrets and a wonderfully dangerous adventure.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up.
