Freakling (Psi Chronicles, #1)

In twelve-year-old Taemon’s city, everyone has a power called psi—the ability to move and manipulate objects with their minds. When Taemon loses his psi in a traumatic accident, he must hide his lack of power by any means possible. But a humiliating incident at a sports tournament exposes his disability, and Taemon is exiled to the powerless colony.

Although this is supposed to be the first in a series, I can’t quite see how the future stories will turn out, based on this one.  It’s another that would make for some interesting conversation.  What would it be like to grow up in a world where you used your mind to do everything in your daily life and how to view people without the same abilities?
