Summary
Electricity: the flowing of electromagnetic particles. It creates lightning, turns on the television, generates power, and it also is a microscopic current, something we cannot see, that connects us all. The concept fascinates Jaden, a twelve-year-old, but what he cannot understand is this: Jaden does not feel connected to anyone. So, Jaden lights fires, hoards food, steals, and runs until his anger beats him to the ground. Jaden's biological mother did not want him, and while his adoptive parents say they love him, Jaden feels nothing. Or, something, actually; like an epic fail. And now they want to adopt a new kid, so they pack up and fly with Jaden halfway around the world to get one. In Kazakhstan, Jaden's smoldering anger flares. He knows what will happen next. Or does he?
