    Pushing her hair off her forehead, Mom said, “That’s Izzy. Not all Brannicks have the same abilities. I can’t sense the presence of Prodigium the way she can. Anyway, when I realized that I’d been living with the very thing I was supposed to be fighting, I—”
    Flipped all the heck out?” I supplied.
