Sophie Harper has a secret. A peculiar one.
By the time she gets to the Academy for Peculiars, she’s already killed a man. From there, she learns that the superhuman strength she was born with and abandoned because of means she’s a peculiar – a human with abnormal DNA – yet that same strength alienates her from her peculiar peers because of its rarity.
As she settles into her new home, she makes friends with her dorm mates, stresses out about catching up with schoolwork, and starts dating one of the most popular guys at the academy. Normalcy is what Sophie wants more than anything, but she can’t change the fact that she’s different, even among peculiars. She starts falling for her infuriating trainer, a rugged shifter named Will, despite the fact that it’s forbidden.
When she finds out there’s only one other man with her physical strength, she yearns to learn more about him – yet he’s someone everyone refuses to discuss. She starts to realize that being a peculiar means more than just being strong, and that just she shares her ability with her mysterious counterpart, it doesn’t mean he isn’t a threat.
