Map of Flames

X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven in the new middle-grade series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa McMann (The Unwanteds)—now in paperback!

Fifteen years ago, eight supernatural criminals fled Estero City to make a new life in an isolated tropical hideout. Over time, seven of them disappeared without a trace, presumed captured or killed. And now, the remaining one has died.
 
Left behind to fend for themselves are the criminals’ five children—Birdie, Brix, Seven, Tenner, and Cabot—each with superpowers of their own.
 
Then Birdie finds a map among her father’s things that leads to a secret stash. There is also a note:  
 
Go to Estero, find your mother, and give her the map.
 
The five have lived their entire lives in isolation. What would it mean to follow the map to a strange world full of things they’ve only heard about, like cell phones, cars, and electricity? A world where, thanks to their parents, being supernatural is a crime?
