When Will forgets himself and accidentally gets top scores on a national exam, he suddenly gets lots of notice from the very people from whom his parents have been trying to hide him.

After Willís parents go missing, Will must accept the offer from the Center for Integrated Learning and learn who he is and just what he is capable of.
