…eight mentally disturbed kids.
Mara Dyer has been known as many things. Depressed. Suicidal. Crazy. But all these things are wrong–it’s the power she has that makes her seem crazy. She may see flashes of the past, but that is from the PTSD she developed from a terrible accident (a building collapsing on all of her friends, leaving her the only survivor.) Now she has been put into a mental ward, where there may be others like her.
Reading minds, making others obey by the sound of your voice… These are some of the many abilities the people in the mental ward have but also with extreme side-effects. Parents might mistaken ability with schizophrenia, personality disorder or paranoia. But the people with the abilities may handle them with extreme choices: anorexia, bulimia, hallucinations or harm themselves. Combine all of these together and you have eight mental patients who should not be patients at all.
