“The only thing scarier than finding out you have Earth-shaking superpowers… is finding out you aren’t the only one.”
Joan is at her happiest when she uses her powers—stirring air currents, creating fire, and levitating metal objects—but she learned at a young age that no one in her small-minded suburban neighborhood was prepared to accept her abilities. Since that painful revelation, she has hidden her powers, isolating herself from others, even keeping her own parents at a distance.
However, all that changes when a boy named Daniel Thundyil transfers to her school and she begins to suspect that he is concealing powers of his own. Burning with curiosity and desperate to end her loneliness, Joan makes it her mission to get to the bottom of this boy’s secrets. What she uncovers is hard to believe, even for someone as strange as she is: Daniel and his father are crime-fighters from a parallel dimension of super-powered beings, and they have come to her town in search of nameless criminal so powerful his presence threatens all life on Earth.
In these inter-dimensional travelers, Joan finds a hope she never thought possible: that she could belong somewhere. But storm clouds are gathering over the rooftops of suburbia, and Joan realizes that the closer she gets to her newfound friends, the closer she gets to a danger too terrible to contemplate. Now, the most powerful girl on Earth faces a choice: will she retreat back to the safety of her life in hiding or brave the storm for a chance at truth and friendship?

About the Author
M. L. Wang was born in Wisconsin in 1992, decided she wanted to be an author at the age of nine, and never grew up. She got her Bachelor of Arts in history from Knox College in 2015 and currently works at a martial arts school in her home city of Madison.
Wang's Theonite Series is the product of over ten years of writing, research, and rampant imagination that began when Wang was still in middle school. She majored in history, learned multiple foreign languages, and even studied abroad with a West African oral traditionalist to realize the universe of these books. The idea behind the series has always been to revel in all the fun and action typical of YA adventure while also exploring deeper (less-fun) issues of gender, ethnicity, and power.
