Five kids, one well, and no coincidences. At least that’s what Kaori Tanaka, self-proclaimed 12-year-old psychic, tells her clients: no coincidences.
Of course, right now, Kaori’s psychic business is limited to an assistant—her little sister Gen—and one client—Virgil Salinas. Virgil is shy, misunderstood by everyone in his boisterous family except his Filipina grandmother, and bullied by Chet Bullens. He also needs Kaori’s help in figuring out how to approach Valencia Somerset, whom he would desperately like to befriend. Valencia is deaf, loves nature, secretly wants a friend, and has just found Kaori’s flyer at the supermarket.
Ada looks completely human . . . but she has a secret.
Twelve years ago, right before Ada was born, a genetic experiment on Long Island went horribly wrong. The result?

Their wildly different appearances and altered senses set them apart from everyone else. These children became known as kimes, and everyone is terrified of them.
