But these special powers make Katie unusual, and its hard to make friends when youre unusual. Katie knows that shes different but shes never done anything to hurt anyone so why is everyone afraid of her? Maybe there are other kids out there who have the same silver eyes . . . and the same talents . . . and maybe theyll be willing to help her.
