When Trash tests his power in a bank and accidentally steals a fistful of cash, he is kidnapped by the ruthless leader of a shadowy company whose purpose is to gather information about psychic phenomena--and who is willing to do anything to get it.... Torchie, Cheater, Lucky, Flinch, and Martin join forces to rescue their friend using their hidden talents, and discover their "true" talents in the process.
"Hidden Talents is becoming--and deserves to be--a classic of YA literature. It's one of the best, no matter what age you are."--Orson Scott Card, best-selling author of Ender's Game, on Hidden Talents "Lubar's first novel is wondrously surprising, playful, and heartwarming. A promising new author."--VOYA (5Q 4P) on Hidden Talents
"A good bet for readers who like offbeat fiction. The dialogue is right on target with plenty of humor."--Booklist on Hidden Talents
"Lubar serves up great fun, along with an insight or two for those whose powers are only too human."--Publishers Weekly on Hidden Talents
