Hannah Carter doesn’t know it yet, but she’s a walking, talking weapon of mass destruction—and she could go off at any moment.
For 17-year-old Hannah, college can’t come quickly enough. Her standing Friday night dates with Netflix have lost their allure, and her overprotective parents’ ban on cell phones embarrasses her to no end. Her closest brush with excitement is the unsettling vision that occasionally haunts her sleep. When Hannah discovers that the exact same nightmare plagues three of her classmates, the teens enter into an uneasy alliance. They soon realize they are united by far more than a dream—they also share a puzzling ability to generate intense heat. Hannah revels in her new talent, until she finds herself unable to power down.
To ensure that Hannah has a future, the teens must race to unravel the secrets of their past. All the while, they struggle to come to terms with the terrifying power that is less their gift than their curse.
