The NaturalsThe Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked this book! It had well-written characters and a great story. I am a sucker for secret agent books, and I really love ones that have a different spin on them. The Naturals was that kind of story. I received an early release e-Arc but was out of the country and had to catch up on a lot of work when I returned so I am just getting to the review. There are a lot of twists in this book and I like how they were done. Cassie is a teen that doesn't really seem to have a connection with her family though she has a family that loves her deeply. She has been on the FBI's radar for a special program and accepts the challenge to go and learn more about her gift and how to use it to help them track criminals. She meets some interesting teens that also have gifts and she is not the only one that has a troubled background and it all comes to the front when the story hits its stride. One thing I did like is that the story doesn't act as if the FBI would be willing to let teens work on cases involving murder but, teens being teens, and desperate people trying to get answers will do what they have to do. Great story and I look forward to how things go in the next installment.
