Gift of Light by Chrysalis

Gifted girl, cursed city 

Nicoletta AKA Wisp has a gift: she shapes sunlight into floating spheres that can alert her of impending danger—which is fortunate since her home, a city tainted by the aftermath of a supervillain’s death, bears a curse. Toxic vapors rise from the sewers on hot summer days, snuffing out anything that lives at ground level.

No one is supposed live in the Dead City, but Wisp and her gang of underage runaways refused the mass evacuations, learning to live alongside the local calamity. The uncertainty of the outside world scared them even more than the dangers of their home.

Now, though, their friend Hannah has gone missing under suspicious circumstances. The deadly Smog has become increasingly unpredictable, and the crime lord in charge of the rival gang to the north is gearing up for conflict. Wisp is prepared to defend her friends and the only home she has ever known, but she and her gang are outnumbered and underequipped and her powers are not exactly suitable for combat . . . 

Note: Gift of Light contains some harsh language.
