Matt is in a new school and got bullied.
Words got out that he has troubled with the police before.
Now, there is an incident at school. Someone bullied him and he reacted supernaturally. He has no control over his power yet.
So he got even more trouble.
When he was back to school, he felt his power coming on.
The plot to kill him is on the way, and it is going to kill his school mates as collateral damage.
It is similar plot of reluctant hero.
Still pretty readable and engaging.
