At first the four relish their newfound gifts, but things become serious when they learn they are being hunted by an organization that wants them for its own nefarious purposes.

A compelling novel & a series with good promise
I really enjoyed it. Our Young Adult characters develop powers from some kind of mysterious Lights in the Sky, a bad agency wants them, secrets are probed, some elements of romance - not too much though and another agency emerges which may or may not want to help them.
I don't like to offer comparisons as you might not like the book to which I compare this one, and this is a good book. The characters feel their ages (15) and we have some really good characters and some very nice storytelling.
I enjoyed how the author started the book and introduced how something that we would probably all like to happen to us happens on a limited basis in terms of location and number of people. This great start then sets the pace and it set my expectation for this very good book.
I actually think the whole book drew me in and made me want more!
