She was born with an extraordinary ability … and while she tries to hide it, others seek to control it. Who will win this deadly zero-sum game?
Rock breaks scissors. Scissors cut paper. Paper covers rock. The rules are simple—except when it's people's lives at stake.
When Lizzy's parents discover the damage she can do with her mind, they hide her away, trying to save her from life as a human lab rat … and trying to save others from her power.
But they can't hide her forever.
Little do they know that professed friends are actually enemies who will eliminate anyone who gets in the way of their goal of turning Lizzy's power to their own ends.
As her protectors are picked off one by one, will Lizzy be able to escape this deadly zero-sum game?
