The Midwest lies in complete ruins after a catastrophic disaster kills tens of thousands and leaves hundreds of thousands injured. Nicholas Keller emerges out of the devastation as a shining light of hope for all. But his newfound fame comes with a price that his aunt will not let him pay. They flee into the shadows in order to protect his secret. However, as Nicholas begins his sophomore year at his fifth school in five years, strange and unexpected things begin to happen. He soon tumbles into a web of doomed love, extraordinary talents and a secret past, which threatens the lives of everyone he cares about. It’s up to Nicholas to confront the truth, even if it means his own death.
Nicholas Keller lives with his Aunt Cora, who he calls “mom”; for the past five years they’ve been moving to different towns. Cora always says to “keep a low profile” or they’ll have to move again. Nicholas wants this year to be different so he tries out for the school football team. Upon playing there’s something off… like how fast his speed is and other weird unexplainable occurrences. No one notices and just believes he’s really good at sports; he makes the JV team. His aunt said it was fine, but still warned him to not bring attention to himself. To him, things were finally looking up, but it didn’t stop there. We meet a girl name Elle, who Nicholas falls in love with at first site. She’s cute and they become a couple. Problem: Oliver. He bullies Nicholas because Nicholas is dating Elle.
Wowza! This book really keeps the reader intrigued from beginning to end! Secrets is a great name for this book, because that’s what happens through out the whole book. Something paranormal and mysterious is happening to Nicholas and he doesn’t know why; his aunt is running from something he doesn’t know about. The mystery keeps the reader flipping through the pages. There are some definite hints while reading, but it’s still very hard to figure out the ending. Some books have too many obvious clues where you end up going “Yeah. I saw that one coming”. In this book big twists happen. At the end of the book everything ties up nicely... no loose ends or questions that need answering. I recommend this book for a great paranormal, drama, romance, and mystery.
