It has always been twelve-year-old Ethan Fost's dream to attend the school where crime fighting vigilantes are born, the school where Ethan will be taught to control his power and use it for good. But things take a turn for the worse when he is forcefully taken to a secluded school where other kids like himself are forbidden to us their Gifts.
However, Ethan is one of the few students who is randomly chosen to compete in an obstacle course that is no mere kiddies playground. Whichever team wins gets to attend Warren's School of the Gifted. With his two teammates, Conrad, the short-tempered pyroglee, and Timothy, a smart-mouth who can control electricity, Ethan is ready to fight to the very end.
About J.D. Hines (Inland Empire, California Author)
J.D. Hines grew up in the small city of Riverside, located in the sunshine state, California. Even as a young girl, J.D. had stories going on inside her head. She would use her stuffed animals as characters, then eventually turned to Polly Pockets.
As a teenager, you would often find her writing in notebooks, or daydreaming about her characters. In fact, she wrote about them so much, the ideas eventually grew into a full on story, which she dreamed would one day be published.
J.D. soon published The Excluded as a sophomore in college, finally living her life-long dream. The Excluded: Forgotten Gifted came second after a year passed by. J.D. is currently editing book three from the series, The Excluded, which will be out this year.
