Separated at birth and only reunited through circumstance and a savage crime, fifteen-year-old twins Alex and Tanner are slowly getting to know each other and becoming accustomed to the idea of being brothers, albeit brothers with barely controllable psychic abilities. While spending their summer vacation together, they find that their past has resurfaced and they are in danger--again! The boys concoct a daring plan to save themselves and bring down the threatening criminal gang at the same time. Coupled with the danger posed by lurking strangers and threatening phone calls, the boys are at odds over whether to search for their birth parents. While Tanner is determined to find his birth mother and extract the truth behind their adoption and the reason for their separation, Alex is just as content to not rock the family boat. First introduced in Disconnected (Orca 1998), Alex and Tanner learn that while blood ties are important, the connections we develop through daily interaction are just as crucial, especially when the going gets tough.
