What’s New About the Story
The fact that the story is centered on a couple of middle-aged parents having to deal with utterly dangerous situations. However, the plot could be a little more unique if it didn't repeat some of the main characteristics of other famous narratives.
The main adult characters show courage and determination when they find themselves in unexpected situations. The little girl is cute and adorable, and also shows she is very loyal and willing to defend the ones she loves.
Uniqueness of Story
Not really. It should be more original and unique in order to become one.

Because the narrative is very well-written and built, it makes us care about the characters and the situations they find themselves in. The characters are also well-developed and credible in this specific universe, and they carry the action very successfully. In general, it is a good book that, with some minor alterations, could be adapted into a good movie, with the potential to become a blockbuster franchise. However, there are some concerns about the general content of the book. It is very reminiscent of other narratives. The little girl with supernatural abilities, the couple that adopts a child who turns out to be much more trouble than expected, the secret organization that runs experiments on special little kids... These are all sci-fi/horror tropes that have been extensively used in the last few decades. The book does have aspects and characters that make it stand out for itself, but some changes could be made to turn it into a much less derivative product, not as comparable to other successful works as it is now. Other than that, it is a competently made book that could be adapted into a compelling, very interesting film.
