Publisher's Summary

A New York Times best-selling series
A USA Today best-selling series
A California Young Reader Medal-winning series  

In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world - before the wrong person finds the answer first. 

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret - at least, that’s what she thinks....

But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well...she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known. 

But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death - and time is running out.

Excellent choice for Harry Potter fans...

Looking for an HP style story with a might girl as a main character? Look no further! Sophie is a very compelling character, and this story is gripping for your middle-schooler. I have created a monster - DD who is 9yo blew through the first 3 in the series over Christmas break. I just had to buy more credits to get her book number 4 because she JUST CAN'T WAIT. Buy it, you won't regret it!!

Amazing!

This book is amazing because it has humor and I think it made me cry like 14 or 15 times, but also the voices are so gentle if they need to or so scared or angry, if you are sick (I am) this is a nice relaxing book to listen to, really recommend it on audible, you won't regret your lose of cents, truest me. My mom asked me why I like the performance so much? It's because even when they sought they don't acutely scream like in story thieves or in the land of stories even thought both of them are very good. Another thing is if English isn't your first language this is the best thing to improve it, not this book only (even thought this book is AMAZING), audible and reading. Won't spoiler but REALLY RECOMMEND!!!!

exciting and inventive

I didn't like that the book kept emphasizing how much of a genius Sophie and the other elves were. They didn't act like geniuses. It took her too long to think about her family and too long to put clues together. The elf children at the school didn't act like elite, talented beings who would live forever. They acted like middle schoolers with drama and pranks and complaining about studying.
Other than that, no problems. I loved that Sophie actually got in trouble when she did something wrong (like using telepathy to cheat!), and I love that she confessed and was tempted to misuse her abilities and kept trying to involve adults despite them keeping secrets.

Love love love

Originally I bought this book for my niece and nephew at Costco because it looked pretty cool and I want them to be interested in what they are reading but then I was interested in reading it and I end up finishing up before they did. I’m on the second book and I’m loving it so far. great book!
