Jody, as you saw in the popup box when you posted your comment, please put genre and some plot details in your header. And say when you read the book. This makes your query a lot easier to solve.

Jody, I added plot details to the topic header. Feel free to update it (without spoilers) using the small "edit" link on the desktop website (not the mobile app).

Na, the title character was the only one with powers in that. She was an oddball (which is why I related to her so much as a kid.)
