The X-Men meet the Spy Kids in this instant New York Times bestseller! Here’s the first book in a new middle-grade fantasy/adventure series from the author of The Unwanteds.
Fifteen years ago, eight supernatural criminals fled Estero City to make a new life in a secluded tropical hideaway. Over time, seven of them disappeared without a trace, presumably captured or killed. And now, the rest have died.

The five children of criminals are left behind to fend for themselves, each with their own superpowers: Birdie can communicate with animals. Brix has athletic abilities and can heal quickly. Tenner can swim like a fish and can see in the dark and hear from a distance. Seven’s skin camouflages itself to match its surroundings. Cabot has shown no signs of any unusual powers, yet.
Then one day, Birdie finds a map in her father’s things that leads to a secret hiding place. There is also a note:

Go to Estero, find your mother and give her the map.

All five have lived their entire lives in isolation. What would it mean to follow the map to a strange world filled with things you’ve only heard of, like cell phones, cars, and electricity? A world where, thanks to their parents, being supernatural is a crime?
