  • 作者簡介
  • In Portland, Orgeon, three high school friendsLeon, Chris and Kaylaspend their time skateboarding studying foreign languages and classical music, and plotting a shared future that will avoid the superficiality they witness in the adult world around them. There is only one adult they admire, whom they suspect might hold secrets worth knowing.

    Natalie lives alone in a decrepit trailer, yet seems happy, and to have few concerns. As they befriend her she persuades them to harvest copper wire from the high tension electrical lines in the countryside around the city, until one day when there is an accident in which Leon is electrocuted. He appears to shake it off, yet soondespite his denials of anything being wronghis behavior comes to resemble Natalie’s in many ways.

    The mystery of what has happened to Leon (and to Natalie) leads Kayla and Chris on an adventure that takes them into the world of a remarkable group of people. These people live among us and are almost impossible to recognize, yet they possess different needs, and different powers. What they do not possess is insight into their condition, or any awareness that they are different. Others are left to wonder atand attempt to profit fromthe possibilities these people contain. Chris and Kayla are not alone in attempting to study, to use, and perhaps even to join their ranks.
