[Read by Melanie Brockmann]
She's the ultimate weapon in fighting destiny.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann and her daughter Melanie have written a pulse-pounding novel of paranormal suspense set in a near future both fantastic and frightening.
Skylar Reid is shaken when Sasha, the little girl she babysits, is kidnapped. She's scared that the weird dreams she's been having about Sasha are real - and even more afraid that Sasha is already dead. When a mysterious girl with extreme butt-kicking abilities roars into town on a motorcycle and starts stalking Skylar, things get even weirder. Supergirl Dana tells Sky that she also has abilities, that a hormone in their blood makes them stronger, faster, smarter - a hormone that the makers of a new drug called Destiny will murder to get their hands on.
Dana and Milo, her dangerously hot yet oh-so-forbidden partner in crime, want Sky to join them in their mission - and to mold Sky into the ultimate weapon. She can sense there's something about her abilities they're not telling her, but the only way to save Sasha and stop other girls from being taken is to embrace the weird . . . and fight Destiny.

Gr 9 Up—High school senior Skylar Reid thought she was totally average until Sasha, the little girl she babysits, is brutally kidnapped from the town of Coconut Key, Florida. The investigation takes Skylar and best friend Calvin to the local Sav'A' Buck to refuel on junk food when they are nearly shot to death by a "murderous trophy wife from hell," a woman high on Destiny—a wonder drug made from extraordinary human blood taken from unwilling donors. These characters are Greater-Thans, people with supernatural gifts of telepathy, superhuman strength, incredible speed, or psychic powers. Skylar discovers her true self when she meets Motorcycle Chick Dana and her dreamy partner, Milo, who promise to help her develop her astonishing gifts and use them to find Sasha. The novel's setting is disappointingly underdeveloped, set in a futuristic United States where the police have little funding or motivation in the aftermath of an unnamed war and subsequently unstable government. Some of the banter and humor are forced, such as jokes made at Calvin's expense, although his "Would-you-rather" game with Skylar will elicit chuckles. The holes in this novel fail to make it "Greater-Than" others of its kind, but the characters will stick. Recommended for readers hungering for paranormal action and a fresh heroine.—Jamie-Lee Schombs, Loyola School, New York City
