Anywhere But Here (Thieves #2)

Author(s): Ella West

Fiction - YA

Nicky, who has the ability to travel through the power of the mind, is on the run. She and the four other teenagers who share her 'freakish' gifts are trying to stay free of the Project: an anonymous group that has controlled their lives, using the teens as messengers, spies, and search and rescue personnel for a number of unexplained missions. How do these young people, forced apart from their families, and effectively turned into slaves (albeit pampered ones), react to their hard won independence? They're alone in Los Angeles, not only trying to find cash, food and shelter, but also to care for Jake, who was shot in the dramatic escape at the end of Thieves. The relationships between all five young people are put under terrible strain, and soon, the mysterious Guardian - the head of the Project - manages to trace their whereabouts. How, given the young people have discarded the Project's tracking devices? Who is he really, and why did he start the Project?
The travellers still have the computer discs they were asked to copy in their last break-in mission. They start to believe that if they can crack the files, it could reveal the Project's true identity.
