  • show Description
  • Ian Archer is a high school student who finds himself trapped at a prep school with no idea of how to escape. He teams up with three other students, CJ, Gabe, and Suki to discover why they are at the school and how to get out. Aiding their efforts is the fact that each of them has a special "gift": Ian can see a half-second into the future, CJ can read body language, Suki can imitate voices, and Gabe can talk anyone into doing anything. However, their fellow students and mysterious superiors have "gifts" as well.moreless

    • Headmaster: "Excels at all sports, particularly martial arts." I heard you ran into the Buffer team. Consider joining? Ian: I'm not a team player. Headmaster: Yet.

    • Ian: So, Head Master, uh, is that it? Just one name, like Pink, Rhianna? Headmaster: Staff are addressed here by their titles--Science, Math. I think you've already met Coach. Keeps things simple yet respectful.

    • CJ: Keep up, Forrest Gabe: Guys, come on. I wasn't cut out for this, all right? I can talk my way out of a fight, I can do that. Scaling walls to freedom, not so much.

    • CJ: You remember Gabe Forrest from class. Ian: Yeah. Funny guy. Gabe: It's a gift.

    • Ian: You guys were fighting back? CJ: We've been jerked around long enough. We had to fight back. Ian: Man, am I glad I met you guys. Gabe: Yeah, I guess we're glad to meet you, too.

    • Gabe: Hey, Ian, you want--you want to know what I can do? Ian: Unless you can teleport us home, I'll pass.

    • Gabe: Fine. Hey, guys. how are you? Love the eyes. Really brings out the creepiness. So listen, i think there's been a huge miscommunication here. Yeah, you see, my friends and I, these guys, we just took a wrong turn after study hall, chased a baby raccoon out here. You should have seen his face, he was so adorable. CJ: Don't worry. He can talk his way out of anything. That's his ability. Gabe: I don't think there's any reason for us to be running around the forest screaming our heads off like crazy people--or howling, for that matter, sir. Okay? We're just going to head back to campus, and you gentleman, well, you gentleman can fly back to the Batcave or wherever you hole up. I can see you're getting a little angry.

    • Ian: Picking up anything besides embarrassment and the desire to inflict pain? CJ: I see Zack's tear ducts welling up. Going to lose it.
