Call me crazy, but I've got an itch I can't scratch. I read a lot in school and one of the books I remember from Junior High (early 2000's) was a book about some children that were being experimented on in a lab. I think I recall they had powers and the boy's eyes glowed blue as he was able to read minds/move objects with his mind etc. I'm pretty sure he was trying to escape the lab and the doctors.

    Do you have any idea when it was published? Did it look recently published or would it have been older?

    Also what sort of setting was it? Contemporary or futuristic or whatever?

    I found a similar thread on Goodreads. Some possibilities that were raised there: Mind Trap | Cries of the Children | Hear the Children Calling. Mind Trap has a kid with blue eyes on the cover.

  • Actually I think The Seer is the correct book, because Mind Trap is a sequel.
