From the Publisher:
The fabulous powers of the Red King were passed down through his descendants, after turning up quite unexpectedly, in someone who had no idea where they came from. This is what happened to Charlie Bone, and to some of the children he met behind the grim, gray walls of Bloor's Academy. Charlie Bone has discovered an unusual gift-he can hear people in photographs talking! His scheming aunts decide to send him to Bloor Academy, a school for genius's where he uses his gifts to discover the truth despite all the dangers that lie ahead.
Life changes for a boy named Charlie Bone when he discovers that he has the ability to hear the thoughts of people in photographs. When Charlie's dislikable aunts find out about his new power, they declare that he is "one of the chosen" and as such he must attend the Bloor's Academy for Gifted Children. While at the Academy, Charlie meets the other students--all of whom also have unusual and mysterious powers. This is the first book in the Children of the Red King quintet.
