The NaturalsPaperback - 2014
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. Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms close. 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.
Think The Mentalist meets Pretty Little Liars-Jennifer Lynn Barnes's The Naturals is a gripping psychological thriller with killer appeal, a to-die-for romance, and the bones of a gritty and compelling new series.

From Library Staff
Cassie is part of an elite FBI crime-solving unit--that happens to be made up of all teenagers, but can they continue to hold their own when a serial killer targets one of them?
Imagine being 17 and working for The FBI, and you can probably imagine Cassie's life. Except The FBI is determined to keep their teenage prodigies out of the cases directly, but how can they do that when a serial killer targets Cassie?
Pair with "The Truth of All Things" by Kieran Shields. Very different stories about serial killers and the people who try to find them.
