Previously published in hardcover as DELCROIX ACADEMY: THE CANDIDATES. Dancia Lewis doesn't seem all that special. And that's not just because of her average grades or less-than-glamorous wardrobe. In fact, Dancia's mediocrity is a calculated cover for her secret: whenever she sees a person threatening someone she cares about, things just . . . happen . Cars skid. Structures collapse. Usually someone gets hurt. When recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up in her living room to offer her a full scholarship, Dancia suspects the recruiters know more about her "talent" than they're letting on. Once she arrives at the mysterious school, Dancia worries that her days of living under the radar are over. Even the hottest guy on campus treats her like she's one-of-a-kind. And then there's her elusive new friend, Jack, who thinks Delcroix is hiding a dangerous secret. Dancia doesn't know who to trust. A battle is brewing behind the gates of the Academy, and Dancia may have no choice but to pick sides even if it means finally stepping out of the shadows.
