PowersBook - 2007
Young Gav can remember the page of a book after seeing it once, and, inexplicably, he sometimes "remembers" things that are going to happen in the future. As a loyal slave, he must keep these powers secret, but when a terrible tragedy occurs, Gav, blinded by grief, flees the only world he has ever known. And in what becomes a treacherous journey for freedom, Gav's greatest test of all is facing his powers so that he can come to understand himself and finally find a true home.

"Young slave Gavir, stolen as a baby from the marsh tribes, has been educated by his tribe. Gav responds with deep loyalty, but after a horrific betrayal, he flees, repudiating every aspect of his tribe and seeeking to reconnect with his native people. Tension provided by a slave catcher's pursuit creates thriller intensity. Told with shimmering lyricism, this coming of a saga will leave readers as transformed by the power of words as is Gav himself, who ultimately has a lifeline that tugs him toward a spiritual homecoming."
