Windswept by Gwen Cole
Every day, Sam endures the same, old subway ride on her way to school, but when she meets a boy named Reid, suddenly her daily commute isn’t so ordinary. Reid has the ability to teleport—or, drift—as he calls it, and for the first time, Sam has the opportunity to see other countries without a passport or plane ticket.
But as their two worlds come together, Sam soon realizes her family has secrets she never knew about, and meeting Reid might have been more than coincidence. For years, there’s been a secret bloody feud between drifters and sliders—two groups of people with different abilities and, at the center of it all, Sam’s own parents, who are now missing in action.When Sam manifests her own ability, she finds herself in the middle of danger and captured by the people who have also been hunting for her parents. With Reid’s life suddenly in danger because of her, Sam has to figure a way to stop the ongoing war between the families before it costs Reid his life.
Gwen Cole grew up in upstate New York and then moved to Virginia where she did not graduate college. Instead she played bass guitar in a hardcore band and later married the lead guitarist. She enjoys large jigsaw puzzles, playing Xbox and softball, and watching movies. Gwen now lives in Richmond, Virginia with her husband, daughter, and very large dog, where she longs to live in the country again.
