Sixteen-year-old Merrin Grey would love to be able to fly, or even drift along like a freaking ghost - too bad all she can do is float up and down. When almost everyone else is a Super, with at least two powers, or a Normal, with none, being a One is the worst kind of in-between.
All Merrin has ever wanted is to land an internship at the Biotech Hub. Shebusts her butt in AP Chem and salivates over the Hub¹s research on the manifestation of superpowers, all to find the key to fixing herself.
Then she meets Elias VanDyne, another One, and all her carefully crafted plans fly out the window. Literally. When the two of them touch, their Ones combine to make them fly, and when they¹re not soaring over the Nebraska cornfields, they¹re busy falling for each other. Merrin¹s over the moon - Elias is as good at kissing as he is at helping her fly. Better yet, her mad chemistry skills land her a spot on the Hub¹s internship short list.
But when the Hub kidnaps Elias, Merrin discovers The Hub¹s sick experiments don¹t heal Ones - they get rid of them. If she stands up to the Hub, she not onlyrisks Elias¹s life, she¹ll also destroy her chances of ever finding a way to fly solo of ever being more than a One.
