Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Seventeen-year-old Cassie is a natural at reading people. Piecing together the tiniest details, she can tell you who you are and what you want. But it’s not a skill that she’s ever taken seriously. That is, until the FBI come knocking: they’ve begun a classified program that uses exceptional teenagers to crack infamous cold cases, and they need Cassie.

What Cassie doesn’t realize is that there’s more at risk than a few unsolved homicides— especially when she’s sent to live with a group of teens whose gifts are as unusual as her own.

Sarcastic, privileged Michael has a knack for reading emotions, which he uses to get inside Cassie’s head—and under her skin. Brooding Dean shares Cassie’s gift for profiling, but keeps her at arm’s length.

Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms closer than Cassie could ever have imagined. Caught in a lethal game of cat and mouse with a killer, the Naturals are going to have to use all of their gifts just to survive.
It's beyond fair to say I'm a little bit obsessed with Jennifer Lynn Barnes', or Dr. Jennifer Lynn Barnes since, in addition to writing these fantabulous young adult books and being all-around awesome, Jen also earned her PhD,
YA books. I adore them and news of their releases makes me so very happy.

I love, love the Raised by Wolves series -- you have to read Taken by Storm the third book if you haven't already (after reading the first two). Have to! I'm very serious.

I can't even give The Naturals too much thought or I'll get stuck on how much I want to read it and not get other things done today so we'll go with the vague !!!!!!! Does that work well enough for a 'Waiting' post? I hope so.

Disney Hyperion will publish The Naturals on November 5th -- add it to your Goodreads shelf
or pre-order from Amazon

What is it you're waiting on this week?
