The less he eats, the more Matt seems to have powers, the ability to see things others cannot and to tune into the thoughts in people's heads, maybe even the ability to bend time and space. He goes on a hunger strike in order to stalk Tariq and his band of bullies and find out what they did to make his sister, Maya, run away in the middle of the night.
