Living in constant fear. Always looking over your shoulder. The source of your fear? The Institute.
Allira Daniels will do anything to keep her Defective brother safe from the Institute. They claim to protect Defectives, but it’s human nature to fear the unknown. Defectives are dangerous, they possess abilities that no human should be able to. To Allira and the rest of her family, the Institute seems more like a prison than the safe-haven they promote themselves to be. Protecting Shilah from that fate is their number one priority.
When Allira stumbles across a car crash involving two of her school classmates, she ignores all of her father’s warnings of laying low and not drawing attention to herself. By doing so, she may have just caught the eye of the Institute. She’s not Defective, but what seventeen-year-old girl has the ability to pull two teenage boys away from a fiery rubble and walk away without a scratch? It would definitely be seen as suspicious.
Allira and her family need to make decisions. Do they stay, or do they flee again? Will they be coming for her? Will her whole family come under investigation? Will they discover Shilah and his ability to predict the future?
Are you Defective? The Institute is coming for you.

About the Author
Kayla was born and raised on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. She still resides there with her husband and son.
Her love of reading and movies inspired her to start something she never dreamed possible: writing her first novel.
When she's not looking after her son, or writing, you'll most likely find her hosting her own dance party in the kitchen while she does the dishes (where her husband will argue that more dancing is achieved than clean plates.)
