Publisher Comments:

In the year 2051, who has a pulse?

With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she can move objects with her mind. This telekinetic ability is called a "pulse," and Dylan has the talent, too.

In riveting action scenes, Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters who are so powerful they can flatten their enemies by uprooting streetlights, throwing boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with her unusual talent, the mind—and the heart—can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she'll have to harness the power of both.

Patrick Carman's Pulse trilogy is a stunning and epic triumph about the power of the mind—and of love.

Review:

"Carman (the Dark Eden series) mixes high school drama with mutations and conspiracies in this impressive take on the postapocalyptic novel. In the near-future wasteland between the giant Eastern and Western States, the remaining teenagers attend sparsely populated schools, ordering goods and taking classes piped in from the States on their networked Tablets. If they decide to emigrate, they are given free transportation to one of the States and cut off from the network. When Faith Daniels's school is consolidated into another one, she and her friend and fellow junior Liz meet attractive and dangerous twins Clara and Wade. Faith also discovers her 'pulse,' a rare power that gives her telekinesis. After Liz's family emigrates, Faith gets caught up in what could be the beginning of a war. Carman's world-building doesn't stand up to scrutiny (too many social structures appear designed to enable plot points), but the character-driven action should keep readers invested. A large but well-developed cast and some grim turns of events keep the story moving and lay groundwork for the next book in this planned trilogy. Ages 13 — up.
