Cassie Hobbes is not like most teenagers. Most teenagers don’t lose their mother in a bloody, unsolved kidnapping. Most teenagers can’t tell who you are, where you’re from and how you’re likely to behave within moments of meeting you. And most teenagers don’t get chosen to join The Naturals.
Identified by the FBI as uniquely gifted, Cassie is recruited to an elite school where a small number of teens are trained to hone their exceptional abilities.
For Cassie, trying to make friends with the girls, and to figure out the two very different, very hot boys, is challenging enough. But when a serial killer begins recreating the details of her mother’s horrific crime scene, she realises just how dangerous life in The Naturals could be...
Cassie's mother was murdered when she was twelve, five years
ago. Presumed dead, no body recovered. Now, Cassie's been dragged into the
world of the FBI's super secret program of The Naturals. It was an easy choice
for her, since it's a brand new start. It's been five years, and though living
with her father's Mother- and the Italian family that comes with it, who are
nice and kind albeit nosey, Cassie's never felt like she fit in. She's not like
them, and no matter how much they treat her like family, she doesn't feel it.
She knows things, she can do things that other people can't. That people train
years to do. She's a Natural profiler. Cassie can look at a person and tell you
everything about them, the type of person they are: messy/neat. Their
personality. But, she's relied on what she can do to hide herself and now she's
in a house with four other people who are like her.
