This is what my official profile at IPI (International Paranormal Investigations at says. Like that’s all that matters about me, how powerful I am, what’s my threat level, what can I do.

This is all that mattered to Rent-A-Kid too, though I didn’t know it at the time. They used me as a spy, rich people spying on other rich people so they could all get richer. Whatever. You want to know the real me? Look at my best friends, Luke and Lucy. Look at my art work. Talk to my boyfriend. They can tell you the important stuff.

Like, I love art more than anything. I love painting and drawing and going to museums. I’m a total geek about it and could spend days and days in a studio or museum just absorbing colors and shapes and images. My favorite movie is X-Men, for obvious reasons. (Come on, you know it’s funny!) I totally hate Palm Trees. Seriously, they’re the ugliest trees in the world and I don’t know why people like them.

I’m sometimes shy and often end up on the wrong side of a bully’s attention—mostly Mary, she’s such a witch. (Not a real witch, just, you know, witch with a ‘b’.) I’m working on standing up for myself more though.

I’m really loyal to the people I love and would do anything for them, and I can’t wait to go to Sarah Lawrence and study art.

So this is just a little about me, but you’ll never really know me if you don’t spend some time with me.

And sadly, you’ll never know me as well as I will know you. I can read minds after all, and I know what you’re thinking right now!


~ Sam




She reads minds. He controls minds. Together, they might get out alive.

Sam thinks she’s months away from freedom. After spending her life in a secret school, rented out to the rich and powerful as a paranormal spy, she is ready to head to college like any normal eighteen-year-old.

Only Sam isn’t normal. She reads minds. And just before her big going-away party, she links to the mind of a young man who changes everything.

Drake wasn’t raised as a ‘Rent-A-Kid.’ He was kidnapped and taken there by force. But his exceptional physical strength and powers of mind control make him very dangerous, especially to Sam.

When they meet, Sam is forced to face the truth of her situation, and to acknowledge that not all is as it seems in her picture-perfect world. For what awaits her on her eighteenth birthday isn’t a trip to college, but an unexpected nightmare from which she may not be able to escape.

To survive, they must work together. But will their powers be enough to save them before it’s too late?
