Sixteen-year-old Darcy Jones doesn't know she's not human--but then, there's a lot she doesn't know, including everything that happened before she was abandoned outside a Chicago firehouse at five years old. But when a mysterious boy named Conn arrives at her high school, Darcy begins to discover more about her past--and is not so sure she likes what she learns. Turns out Darcy is a Shade, a creature capable of becoming invisible, but also part of the terrorist organization the Shadow Society, whose main quest seems to be to eliminate as many humans as possible. Conn, a human, has been sent to arrest her, but when the two find that they are falling in love, things get a lot more complicated.
