A mysterious and powerful fantasy adventure from a Schneider Award winner
In the near future, most of the population of the United States has been destroyed by the plague. The few remaining survivors live in colonies on the barrier islands off the East Coast. In one colony near Cape Hatteras, almost all the members have elemental powers and can control wind, water, earth, and fire. All but sixteen-year-old Thomas. When the Guardians, the powerful adult leaders, are kidnapped by pirates seeking to take over their colony, it is up to Thomas and a small group of teens to save them and preserve the mysteries of the island.
Fast action, strategy, and mystery churn together into a bold and fresh fantasy from an award-winning author.

I was sure she wanted to say more. So did I – how much I liked talking to her, even though it felt more awkward every day; how I started each morning by watching her walk along the beach before the sun grew too strong; how I thought about her even when she wasn’t around. How I wanted to touch her so much it was killing me. pg. 83
