Sixteen-year-old Mariam Wilson never knew she was going to be one of the most powerful people in the world. And all it took was death, blood, and a lot of brain power.
Being a teenage girl is already hard enough. But when Mariam's little sister is murdered on the street in broad daylight, her life takes a spin for the worst. Turns out her sister had been born with a very important ability: the power to create anything that comes to mind right in the palm of her hand. In her sister's dying breath, the gift is handed over to Mariam.
But it's not all fun and games. Mariam finds herself the target of a serial killer because of who she is and what she can do. And he'll stop at nothing to catch her. There's not much time. With the help of a secret agent and her own personal trainer, Mariam must learn to master her gift before the killer destroys her and everything she loves. In the end, she'll realize it will only come down to who lives and who dies.
