"Deep down, I knew it wasn’t Leo I was afraid of. He was pretty amazing, and it made sense, in a weird way, that he would be special like that. So then what was I doing out here alone, in the middle of the night? Why did I freak out so much when I saw what he could do?"
Ever since she was abandoned by her parents when she was just a few weeks old, Cody has never known the meaning of family. Or friendship, for that matter.
This year, however, something's changed. This year, she met Leo. They have too much in common for their meeting to have been anything but the work of fate; their personalities, their past and even their birthdays are the same.
But Leo carries a heavy secret that may bring on dangers neither of them knew existed and which puts them in the center of a war that has been churning for years.
