Review

Freakling by Lana Krumwiede provides an excellent representation of the science fiction genre. It's mind-blowing how twelve-year-old Taemon and his family are so used to using "Psi" for every little object they move in a normal daily routine. "Psi wielding" they call it is telekinesis only known of in the city of Deliverance. Steep, rugged mountains form a wall so no "powerless" people (otherwise known as us) make it inside. Taemon already knows he has a secret. He can "mind wander" which is when his find discovers how something works. When you know how something works, you can control it with your mind.
