Romance and action come crashing together in Susan Adrian's Tunnel Vision in which a teenage boy with incredible powers is brought to the attention of the government.
Jake Lukin just turned 18. He's decent at tennis and Halo, and waiting to hear on his app to Stanford. But he's also being followed by a creep with a gun, and there's a DARPA agent waiting in his bedroom. His secret is blown.
When Jake holds a personal object, like a pet rock or a ring, he has the ability to "tunnel" into the owner. He can sense where they are, like a human GPS, and can see, hear, and feel what they do. It's an ability the government would do anything to possess: a perfect surveillance unit who could locate fugitives, spies, or terrorists with a single touch.
Jake promised his dad he'd never tell anyone about his ability. But his dad died two years ago, and Jake slipped. If he doesn't agree to help the government, his mother and sister may be in danger. Suddenly he's juggling high school, tennis tryouts, flirting with Rachel Watkins, and work as a government asset, complete with 24-hour bodyguards.
Forced to lie to his friends and family, and then to choose whether to give up everything for their safety, Jake hopes the good he's doingfinding kidnap victims and hostages, and tracking down terroristsis worth it. But he starts to suspect the good guys may not be so good after all. With Rachel's help, Jake has to try to escape both good guys and bad guys and find a way to live his own life instead of tunneling through others.

Will purchase her next book!
It was pretty good. Kinda confusing though. Read my story at 'sjs' res tree and up.
Really cool! I hope to stay on top of this story as it continues
Lily had this dream pretty often. Always not many people. The wierd thing was she could talk to the people and she felt...real. Because when she would dream anything but this she didn't exactly feel real. She saw Melody, the girl who was always nice but pretty quiet. The first time they had met Melody had asked if Lily was her 'partner.' Lily still didn't know what that meant. Melody walked over. "Hi, Lily!! Have you really found it yet?" She asked. "Umm, what? Sorry, Melody, I still don't know what you're talking about," Lily said, shaking her head. "Oh, thats ok, Lily, you'll know soon, probally..." Melody flipped her long black hair over her shoulder. Lily sighed. She wished she was as pretty as Melody. With her waist length black hair and hazel eyes she had almost perfect features. Melody could be an 11 year old super model! Lily had shoulder length brown hair and brown eyes with a snub nose; she thought she was ugly compared to Melody. 'At least,' Lily thought. 'I don't have glasses, like Melody.' "So, um, Lily, how did you get here today?" Melody asked, shifting on he feet. "I'm dreaming, like I always do to get here," Lily said. "There isn't another way, right?" "Umm, well, I'm not really supposed to tell you this, but..." Melody trailed off. "What?!" Lily gasped...<b> BEEP BEEP BEEP!!!! Lily's alarm clock rang waking Lily up. "URNGK!??" Lily grunted. "7:00 already?!?! What?! But I just got in there!!" Lily swung her feet over the side of her bed and walked into the kitchen to see what was for breakfast..ppp. (Thank you for reading the rest of chapter one, and please read my sisters story and make your own at fuzzy all res. Sorry for any mis-spells and typos. Again, Thanks!!~Moonfall.)
