    @Toni rollins Are your descirptions of the appearances and abilities of characters those of the group of kids or those of the group of elves? Commented May 29, 2022 at 18:04

    I'm at a loss why this would attract close votes. I can't imagine there are many novels/with children/find out that elves exist/one with blue skin/one that can read minds/one that rides moto-cross/is invulnerable

    Certainly I can only think of one @Valorum - motorcycle riding elves are rare. Commented May 29, 2022 at 20:02

I think this could be Curse of the Spider King, the first book of the Berinfell Prophecies series, by Wayne Thomas Batson and Christopher Hopper.

The story concerns seven teenagers. Rather than discovering that "there are elves" though, they actually find that they themselves are elves, and have been kidnapped from the Elven realm and sent to Earth. Each has a particular type of gift or power which reveals itself when they turn thirteen. In particular, two of them are:

Kat Simonson: A seventh grader in North Hollywood, California; she has polycythemia vera, a condition that gives her skin a bluish color.

Jett Green: Seventh grader in Greenville, North Carolina. Rides motocross bikes and plays football.

Jett had a terrible crash on his bike, which should have killed him. However, he recovered the next day with just scratches and bruises, a sign of his physical invulnerability.

In addition Kat is able to hear other's thoughts, a talent she discovered in a history test when she found she could pick up what her classmates were thinking (and thereby obtained a perfect score).
