This book is set in the future (unsure how far) in the U.S., and it was in an outskirts city. The main character is a girl, and she learns that she has telekinetic powers, and these powers also keep her from being harmed from any sort of danger, except anything made from a certain material (titanium, I believe), and there are three others like her, all with a different weakness. The girl goes to a small school with two of the bad guys, and after learning of her abilities they try to kill her. The plot is really involved, so I can't get to it deeply on here.

  • What is an "outskirts city"? Outskirts of what? Do you mean it's a suburb of a bigger city?

  • Unrelated, but it's funny how the bad guys always attend the same school as the protagonist!

  • @user14111 It is an outskirts city to a protected city. It is protected by a big bubble basically to keep it sheltered from the changing climate of the earth. Commented Jan 12, 2018 at 19:00

This sounds like Pulse by Patrick Carman. It is the first book of the Pulse trilogy.

With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she can move objects with her mind. This telekinetic ability is called a “pulse,” and Dylan has the talent, too.

In riveting action scenes, Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters who are so powerful they can flatten their enemies by uprooting streetlights, throwing boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with her unusual talent, the mind--and the heart--can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.

Patrick Carman’s Pulse trilogy is a stunning and epic triumph about the power of the mind--and of love.

  • I've edited in some basic information, could you edit to explain how this matches the OPs description?
