MIND CORPS - YA
Dear Mystery Agent,
Sixteen-year-old Colby is on the fast track to becoming America's pre-eminent telepath. Despite the success of his first mission, Colby begins to wonder for the first time in his life why he has been at the Mind Corps since he was a boy. With the Corps distracted by a dangerous new enemy, Darius, whose mind is gaining telepathic abilities on its own, Colby sneaks on to his chief's computer, discovering a government cover-up which reveals the truth about his parents and the lie that was his life in the Corps.
Angry and confused, Colby escapes the Mind Corps. Two year pass, and Colby attempts to live a normal life in the real world, rarely using his abilities out of fear of being found, and promises his girlfriend, Leah, that he will never read her mind. When helping a small girl in public proves to be too much for him to resist, his altruism causes a news scene which finds him in the scope of his former friends in the Mind Corps. But when he finds out that Leah has been cheating on him, all of his restraints on using telepathy for selfish reasons go out the window.
Unfortunately for both Colby and the Mind Corps, Darius has different plans for Colby - whether Colby cooperates or not.
