Waiting On: The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (33)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: The Naturals
Release Date: November 5th, 2013
Publisher: Hyperion Teen
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.

Teens. Cracking. Cold. Cases. And they have unusual gifts. Also, there's something about that cover. Maybe it's because the ribbon is made of caution tape? Perhaps the boxy letters? It could also be the spotlight or the teal blue. Maybe the yellow WITH the blue. I don't know, guys, but I am INTERESTED. So much intrigue. Thank all of the everyone that I don't have to wait too long for this one.

Are you guys ready for this book? Maybe you're excited about something else this week. Let me know all about it in the comments below!


  1. This sounds so interesting! Nice choice! Definitely Adding this to my TBR list :)

  2. I'm actually not a fan of the cover - I must be in the 1% lol. But I do like the synopsis and I think I've read something by this author before but I can't put my finger on what... Hmmm. I shall watch out for this one! :-) Thanks for sharing honey, cool pick.

  3. Ooh, I read this recently and LOVED it. It's filled with all things psychology and I'm a leetle bit of a psychology nerd. I just adore Jennifer Lynn Barnes in general though. She writes amazing characters and crams her stories with plenty of emotion. Excellent choice.

  4. Hmm, so I'm not normally a mystery fan, but I just finished a good one, so that makes me want to try another. This one sounds good!

  5. I actually got a chance to read this recently and I loved and adored it! I hope you will, too!

  6. I'm excited for The Naturals, too. I actually have it from Netgalley, and should read it soon.
