“I would rather be punished for making the right decision than live with the guilt of making the wrong one for the rest of my life.”
-Sophie Foster, Keeper of the Lost Cities (my favorite quote!)
"'What are you doing?'
'Sorry nervous habit'
'You tear out your eyelashes'
'It doesnt hurt'
'You sound like my mom'"
"Do you wonder why you were hidden with humans?"
Her mind darted unwillingly to Prentice. "My real parents must've wanted to get rid of me," she whispered
"That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Who came up with that?"
"Uh, Albert Einstein."
"Huh. Never heard of him. But he was wrong."
SummaryAdd a Summary
Sophie foster is a 12 year who is in high school. She's never fit in at school or at home. But that all changes when she meets a smart (and super cute) boy who takes her to a place with people just like her. She quickly makes friends. But even a perfect world has it's faults...
Sophie Foster, a 12-year-old high school senior, is hated by her classmates. She never really belonged or fit in anywhere…until a mysterious boy arrives and shows her that there's a place where she belongs. Suddenly her whole life changes. But just because she belongs doesn't mean that everyone likes her. It also doesn't mean that she's so safe, either…
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.
