I received this book for free from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Tessa is a normal teenage girl who is surrounded by abnormal family members. Her mom, brother, and sister can all move objects with their minds, and let me tell you, they are not shy about using their abilities behind closed doors. They do what we all would do if we could get a glass of water without leaving the couch or fold our clothes while watching TV, they use their abilities as often as possible. unfortunately, Tessa is the odd man out in her family. Sure her dad can’t move things with his mind, but he can see things from the perspective of any person that he has ever touched so Tessa is alone in her normalcy.

Tessa understandably feels useless. Her family is being hunted by a madman who could slice them all open with his mind, and she can’t even move a paperclip without touching it. Because she feels so helpless, Tessa makes it her mission to remain invisible. Her brother and sister always make friends wherever they move, and their parents encourage Tessa to do the same, but she just wants to be left alone. However, all that changes when she meets Tristan. Tristan sets his sights on getting to know her and won’t take no for an answer. He is sweet, patient, understanding, and just what Tessa needs. He makes her feel safe and wanted for the first time in her life. When she’s with him, she gets to feel special, and being invisible to him is the last thing she wants.

Although she lowers her guard enough to let Tristan get glimpses of the real her, Tessa struggles with the fact that she can never be 100% honest with him. Her family is being hunted so at any moment she might have to disappear out of Tristan’s life. She can’t even let him know her real name, and those facts keeps her from being able to find complete happiness with him. The reality of her life is a constant rain cloud hovering over her head, but she does manage to fight for her happiness.

The first part of this novel was filled with sweet moments, mystery, and drama so I am looking forward to part two!

Because of violence and mild sexual content, I would recommend this book for ages 13 and up.
