By: Marit Weisenberg

All her life, she thought she was alone . . .

Secret societies, romantic intrigue, and family conspiracies of silence swirl together in this compelling sequel to Select. 

Living in a fancy downtown Austin hotel with full control of her vanished family's fortune, seventeen-year-old superhuman Julia Jaynes has never been so free – or so trapped. Hounded by paparazzi and the FBI for clues to her father's whereabouts, Julia is back to suppressing her powers; her boyfriend John agrees that it's best to separate for the summer and lie low, just to be safe. But when fellow family outcast Angus reappears with information about the mother she's never met, Julia can't resist a road trip quest for the truth.

As it turns out, there are more secrets than just family secrets waiting to be discovered. The Puri aren't the only humans evolving into something different . . . and Julia just might be the leader her people have needed all along.

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.
