Me on Waiting on Wednesday (139)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: The Naturals
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Release Date: November 5, 2013
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

From Goodreads:

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.

I'm so intrigued by this. As impossible as it sounds, it also sounds rather interesting. I can see it potentially being very psychological. And I like the new cover, it's more mysterious. What's in the box?


  1. I thought it had a cover change! I wonder why publishers are deciding to change covers all the time... Anyway, I also like this cover better, and the story definitely sounds interesting!

  2. I was about to buy some English books online, and found this post of yours.. Got another book to add in the list :)

  3. This is what I featured this week, too! I'm definitely a fan of the new cover design. Simple, but more interesting than the original. Fantastic pick!
    Natflix&Books' WoW (It's, um, the same book.)

  4. I'm actually very interested in getting my hands on this. I've been eyeing it on NetGalley maybe they will let me get a copy *fingers crossed*

    MY WOW

  5. Ooh, this one sounds good. I hadn't heard of it before--great pick! ~Pam

  6. Sounds interesting - this is the first I've heard of it. Love the cover! Although it does sound kind of similar to her last book.
