Freakling is about a kid, Taemon, who grows up in the shadow of his older brother. He knows he is different from those around him, but he knows he must keep it a secret. Everyone in their city has Psi, basically telekinesis. If a person doesn't have powers then they are shunned and sent to a colony outside the city walls for those without the power. Taemon doesn't think he has anything to worry about until the moment he is faced with an impossible choice. As a result he finds out some of the deep dark secrets that surround his family and fellow citizens of Deliverance.
An exciting sci-fi dystopian that is fine for the upper-elementary grades and middle school. Some of the choices Taemon faces are great for discussion and quite thought-provoking.
