"A spectacular new superhero."--Kathi Appelt, Newbery honoree and National Book Award finalist

As a baby, Noah Minor miraculously--and mysteriously--survived a fall from a sixteen-story balcony. But ever since then, Noah's life has been pretty boring.

As he enters seventh grade, Noah is hoping to be less ordinary and more extraordinary, like his best friends, trumpet prodigy Rodney and the practically perfect Haley. So Noah's sure his star is on the rise when during a standard vision test, he learns he can manipulate gravity and is recruited to train with Gravitas, a top-secret government agency!

Noah thinks his life will now be awesome, but instead, he has a whole new set of problems. The biggest one: His great-uncle Saul is on Gravitas's most-wanted list . . . but might also be the only person who can help Noah reach his full potential.
