After rejecting the cult-like influence of her father's family, Julia moves into a fancy hotel in downtown Austin. But she finds herself alone except for her boyfriend, John--and her fears. Once again she's suppressing her abilities, afraid her family will come for John when they find out he's been developing abilities of his own in her presence. The FBI is also keeping a close eye on Julia hoping she can lead them to her father, Novak, as he's wanted for questioning in his former assistant's death.
With tensions high, Julia and John agree to go separate ways for the summer, paving the way for Julia to reunite with Angus, fellow outcast. Together they set out on a road trip to California to find Julia's mom and a way into Novak's secret underground world. Along the way Julia will learn the Puri perhaps aren't the only humans evolving into something different. . . and that maybe she's the leader her people have needed all along.

No one said having a superpowered family was easy, and Julia Jaynes was already estranged from hers when they disappeared off the face of the planet. Julia has graduated high school and escaped to California with her boyfriend, John, but even though she's hiding her magical powers, she still doesn’t feel safe. The FBI has been tailing her since her father disappeared, and one wrong move could change all her plans in an instant. When the only other Puri left in Texas, Julia’s friend and confidante Angus, reappears, she finds that the FBI isn’t the only one following her every move. All she really wants is to move on with John and start a college career, but can she get everything she wants without bringing more danger to her loved ones? Told in alternating viewpoints—Julia in the present, John in the future—this sequel (Select, 2017) adds suspense and mystery to the original story line. It's a romance cloaked in the trappings of the lives of the rich, and best suited for larger collections. —Booklist
