The Nobody People, by Bob Proehl
Avi Hirsch has always known his daughter was different. But when others with incredible, otherworldly gifts reveal themselves to the world, Avi realizes that her oddness is something more--that she is something more. With this, he has a terrifying revelation: Emmeline is now entering a society where her unique abilities unfairly mark her as a potential threat. And even though he is her father, Avi cannot keep her safe forever. Emmeline soon meets others just like her: Carrie Norris, a teenage girl who can turn invisible...but just wants to be seen. Fahima Deeb, a woman with an uncanny knack for machinery...but it's her Muslim faith that makes the U.S. government suspicious of her. They are the nobody people--ordinary individuals with extraordinary gifts who want only one thing: to live as equals in an America that is gripped by fear and hatred. But the government is passing discriminatory laws. Violent mobs are taking to the streets. And one of their own--an angry young man seething with self-loathing--has used his power in an act of mass violence that has put a new target on the community. The nobody people must now stand together and fight for their future, or risk falling apart.--From the dust jacket.
Black Nowhere, by Reece Hirsch
Special Agent Lisa Tanchik is the best at taking down cybercriminals. So when the FBI discovers a multibillion-dollar black market online, she's tasked with finding the creator and bringing him to justice. Donning one of her many digital disguises, Tanchik goes undercover into the network. Brilliant college student Nate Fallon started his site as an idealistic experiment. But his platform has made illegal trade not only more efficient--but also more dangerous. Now the FBI aren't the only ones out to get him. As profits soar, a criminal organization casts its monstrous gaze on Fallon, and danger leaps from cyberspace into reality. Feeling pressure from both sides of the law, Fallon is forced to make a decision with shattering consequences. Can Agent Tanchik find Fallon before his dangerous infrastructure falls into the wrong hands?--From the dust jacket.
The Man with No Borders, by Richard C. Morais
It is a time of reckoning for Jose Maria Alvarez, an aristocratic Spanish banker living in a Swiss village with his American wife. Nearing the end of a long and tumultuous life, he's overcome by hallucinatory memories of the past. Among his most cherished memories are those of his boyhood in 1950s Franco-era Spain and the bucolic afternoons he spent salmon fishing on the Sella River with his father, uncle, and much-loved younger brother. But these fond reveries are soon eclipsed by something greater. Jose's regrets and dark family secrets are flooding back, as is the devastating tragedy that drove Jose into exile and makes him bear the burden of a soul-deep guilt. Now, as his three estranged sons return to their father's side, Jose hopes to outpace death long enough to finally put his house in order and exorcise its demons. Only in his quest for redemption can Jose begin to understand the meaning of his life--and what his legacy has meant to others.--From the dust jacket.
