Summary from Goodreads:
Witness protection has a protocol for dealing with every situation—except magic.
Fifteen-year-old Cate's life has been monitored since her new identity was created five years ago. She's spent countless hours learning how to deal with potential threats and dangerous situations. None of which is any use when everyone around her is suddenly frozen like statues at the bus stop.
As Cate attempts to make sense of the frightening scene, a mysterious group of teenagers appear out of thin air. They are intrigued she’s not affected, but focus on completing their deadly mission, using baffling powers before they vanish again.
When the group seeks her out the next day, Cate is drawn into a world filled with sorcery and time travel. After she accidentally brings a cheerleader back from the dead, her incredible powers are revealed. Cate is shocked to discover she has a pivotal role to play in a centuries-old battle between two mortal enemies which threatens to destroy her entire world.
With the distinction between good and evil blurred, she’s faced with the excruciating choice of which side to join. Cate can save her family or protect thousands of people from death. She can't do both. Will she risk destroying innocent lives to save the ones she loves?

“What about time travellers? Do you believe in them?”
“No. Why don’t you tootle off and find me a wizard and a time traveller. Then we can all go out for dinner.” Zach’s fingers were trembling so much he couldn’t hit the right buttons to call for help.
“I’ll do better than that.” Jonah knocked the phone from Zach’s hand and grabbed his shoulders. “I’ll show you both. Mortez!” Their surroundings started to spin, and Zach’s terrified screams tore through the air.
Jonah re-adjusted his hold. “It’ll be over in a few minutes. Just breathe.” The silence which followed and the dead weight of Zach’s body confirmed he’d either fainted or died.
