The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

“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.”

So lately I’ve been in a weird funk with reading books. Like I read the first two pages and I just can’t go further. The Naturals got me out of that for one book. I’ve literally tried to read seven books in the past week and it just hasn’t worked. I don’t know why, but I really liked The Naturals.

The Naturals is about a girl named Cassie who has a natural talent for profiling people or reading people. The FBI contacts her wanting her to join their Naturals Program. She does and travels to live in a house with four other Naturals: Sloane, Micheal, Dean, and Lia. She is trained to work on cold cases for the FBI. But the agents that are training them have a new serial killer to track and for whatever reason Cassie feels like it relates to her.

I thought this book was great. It had so much mystery in it. It also had some romance and  I always enjoy that because I can wish that my life can be like that. The romance ties in with the mystery. The pacing is great and isn’t too fast or too slow.

I loved this book and I’m planning on continuing with the series. Just waiting for the next one to get in at the library. I’m super excited to continue and tackle my book list this summer.

I recommend this book to anyone really. It’s not mature and it’s really good. I give this 4.5 out of 5 stars because the pacing wasn’t amazing. But I loved it.

Until Next Time
