I've had some hits and some misses by Jennifer Lynn Barnes but, more often than not, I've really enjoyed her stories. When I heard there was a new book coming out by her, I had to check it out. I love the concept of teens solving cold cases using their natural abilities though, reading the blurb again, it looks like there's a set-up for a love triangle. I hope not. Because that would kill this story for me. *fingers crossed*
I'm *not* a fan of this cover. The girl looks constipated and the whole thing looks kind of junky, like there's too much thrown onto it. The capitol, a chalk outline, odd coloring, a lurking boy in a hoodie, crime scene tape...it's kind of a hot mess. Maybe they'll do a better redesign before finally releasing this thing in November.
YA paranormal thriller
304 pages, hardcover
Expected publication: November 5, 2013
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.
Waiting on is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
