From bestselling author Brad Meltzer comes a new thriller starring Ziggy and Nola, two kids with extraordinary talents. When the Volturi come to town, looking for young Bella Swan, they’re not happy when they can’t find her. But there is another girl in town with a power even more unusual than Bella’s ability to control minds – Ziggy has the gift of lightning! Ziggy isn’t sure how she got her power – all she knows is that she can make things happen just by thinking about them. And it seems like everyone in Hazel Park is after her talent…including the Volturi! With the help of Nola (a spunky cancer survivor who also has a special gift), Ziggy sets out to discover where her powers came from – and why so many people want them for themselves. Filled with magic, adventure, and heart-pounding action, The Lightning Rod will keep readers guessing until the very end.
