It’s a power he hopes can make him rich, famous. So when his mom, who came to Chicago without proper documentation, lets him join little league, Jimmy performs miracles. Pretty soon, people are talking about him as much as they are about the disappearances plaguing the community. But, on his 13th birthday, when his mother also goes missing, Jimmy must learn to use his powers for something else besides cosmic home runs.

by Ricardo Gamboa

Jimmy is just like every other boy on the block—except he can move things with his mind. It’s a power he hopes can make him rich, famous. So when his mom, who came to Chicago without proper documentation, lets him join little league, Jimmy performs miracles. Pretty soon, people are talking about him as much as they are about the disappearances plaguing the community. But, on his 13th birthday, when his mother also goes missing, Jimmy must learn to use his powers for something else besides cosmic home runs. He teams up with two super-powered siblings who have been avoiding living in shelters to rescue his mom, the other “disappeareds”, and discover who is behind the kidnappings.
