Waiting on Wednesday: The Naturals

Happy Hump Day!

We’re only a few days away from the weekend…WHOOT! WHOOT!

Each week I participate in Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine) where I get to put the spotlight on a book I’m trying to wait patiently for.

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn BarnesThis week I am waiting on The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, which seems like a paranormal thriller and sounds like it could be similar to Maureen Johnson’s Shades of London series (which I LOOOOVED!)

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.

Yeah, I think this one sounds like it has a ton of potential to be awesome. The Naturals is scheduled for release on November 5 by Disney-Hyperion.

What do you think? Are you interested in The Naturals or is there another book you’re waiting on today?
