Chace, a teenage orphan with the power to see the future, saves people anonymously by leaving them a letter to find in their moment of crisis. When his friends are in danger, he is there. He saves them but cannot predict the consequences. He can see their future, but he cannot see his own.
Chase is interrupted while writing to save his best friend, Sarah. With an incomplete letter, her rescue feels equally incomplete inside.

Unable to hide his identity any longer, those closest to Chase learn the truth one by one. But he has another secret, one that threatens not only his anonymous heroics, but could even end his life. Will Chace disappear quietly into the night, or will he be adopted by a city that knows him only as “Letters"?
