Kayla is a thief, and an exceptional one. Using her magical knack of telekinesis, she has perfected stealing from ATMs, banks, and shops. But when a mysterious boy needs her help, she's forced to play a whole new game--one that puts her fugitive mother and Kayla herself in great danger.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Sixteen-year-old Kayla was born with the ability to move things with her mind-things like credit cards and buttons on cash registers-and she has become a master shoplifter. She steals to build up enough money for her and her mom to be able to flee if her dad finds them again . . . which would mean grave danger for them both.

When she's caught stealing by a boy named Daniel-a boy with the ability to teleport-he needs her help and is willing to blackmail her to get it. Together, they embark on a quest to find and steal an ancient incantation, written on three indestructible stones and hidden millennia ago, all to rescue Daniel's kidnapped mother. But Kayla has no idea that this rescue mission will lead back to her own family-and to betrayals that she may not be able to forgive…or survive.
