“A poignant and heartfelt journey.” —Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of the Sweet Evil series, on Cold Summer
Every day, Sam endures the same, old subway ride on her way to school, but when she meets a boy named Reid, suddenly her daily commute isn’t so ordinary. Reid has the ability to teleport—or, drift—as he calls it, and for the first time, Sam has the opportunity to see other countries without a passport or plane ticket.
But as their two worlds come together, Sam soon realizes her family has secrets she never knew about, and meeting Reid might have been more than coincidence. For years, there’s been a secret bloody feud between drifters and sliders—two groups of people with different abilities and, at the center of it all, Sam’s own parents, who are now missing in action.
When Sam manifests her own ability, she finds herself in the middle of danger and captured by the people who have also been hunting for her parents. With Reid’s life suddenly in danger because of her, Sam has to figure a way to stop the ongoing war between the families before it costs Reid his life.
