Overview

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. Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms close. 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.

Think The Mentalist meets Pretty Little Liars-Jennifer Lynn-Barnes' The Naturals is a gripping psychological thriller with killer appeal, a to-die-for romance, and the bones of a gritty and compelling new series.

In an intense CSI-type thriller, Barnes (Nobody) lets readers inside the mind of 17-year-old Cassie Hobbes, a “Natural” profiler with the uncanny ability to piece together an individual’s motives, backgrounds, and patterns of behavior. After her mother’s gruesome abduction, and with her father overseas, Cassie is recruited for a special FBI program for teens like her to help solve cold cases. Cassie immediately realizes that being a Natural may be more than she bargained for, and her fellow gifted teens take getting used to, including Michael, an emotional expert who seems fascinated with Cassie’s, and Dean, who just looks pissed off—mostly at her. Barnes is in her wheelhouse with this story of keenly powered teens and covert ops, and she provides an enticing inside look at the world of crime-solving through Cassie’s hyperaware eyes. Cassie’s pursuit by an unknown serial killer keeps things tense, as do creepy narratives from the killer. Barnes shows every card at just the right moment, catching readers off-guard at the final reveal. It’s a stay-up-late-to-finish kind of book, and it doesn’t disappoint. Ages 12–up. Agent: Elizabeth Harding, Curtis Brown. (Nov.)
VOYA - Suanne B. Roush
Cassandra Hobbes has a natural talent to profile people. Cassie was taught by her mother, Lorelai, to observe BPE's—behavior, personality, and environment—as she also did, which helped her ply her career as a fake psychic. That training had ended years before when Lorelai was brutally murdered and her body never found. Now, Cassie is living with her father's family; he is stationed in Europe with the Air Force. She is working as a waitress when she is approached by an FBI agent to join an elite group of teens who are "naturals:" Michael can read emotions, Lia can tell when someone is lying, Sloane can rattle off statistics about anything and recreate crime scenes, and Dean is another profiler. They are to use their talents to solve cold cases, and Cassie hopes one of those cases can be her mother's. Unfortunately, their cold cases run into a very hot case when a serial killer starts killing women in the same manner as Cassie's mother, and then begins to stalk Cassie. They must help catch that person before Cassie becomes the next victim. Although the novel contains the same YA trope of so many—a girl finds herself attracted to two boys, one quiet and brooding, and the other charming, mysterious, and devastatingly handsome—the potential romance is only a small element of a tightly paced suspense novel that will keep readers up until the wee hours to finish. Recommend this title to fans of Gagnon's Don't Turn Around (HarperCollins, 2012/Voya August 2012), Miller's How To Lead A Life Of Crime (Razorbill, 2013/Voya February 2012), and television programs such as Criminal Minds and The Mentalist, and make sure to have more than one copy on hand.

Gr 9 Up—The FBI recruits Cassie Hobbes, 17, to be one of the Naturals, a group of teens with innate crime-solving abilities. Cassie learned how to read people from her mother, a performing psychic who disappeared five years ago and is presumed to be dead. With her father overseas in the military and her large extended Italian family in Colorado, Cassie sets out on her own to Washington, DC, to hone her skills under the tutelage of Special Agent Lacey Locke. The four other teens living in her house possess extraordinary skills as well. Mysterious Dean can read people on sight, handsome and mischievous Michael can understand people's emotions, intense and brainy Sloane can quickly analyze facts and numbers, and catty and pushy Lia can instantly detect a lie. Cassie begins her training with cold cases but is quickly swept into an ongoing investigation. Despite the best efforts of their mentors to keep them off the case, the investigation, which is personal for Cassie, requires the talents of all the teens to solve. This fast-paced series starter introduces the characters and background without losing the intensity of the plot. The murder scenes have just enough blood and gore for forensics fans. The love triangle among Cassie, Dean, and Michael will keep romance readers entertained, and the FBI cases will lure in mystery enthusiasts. The ending is resolved with just enough left open for readers to look forward to the next installment.—Lynn Rashid, Marriotts Ridge High School, Marriottsville, MD

A teen with a special ability and a tragic past is recruited by the FBI to join a group of young profilers. Seventeen-year-old Cassie Hobbes has lived with her paternal grandmother since her mother's presumed murder five years ago. Lorelai Hobbes was never found, but the horrific scene at the site of her disappearance pointed toward her death. Cassie has never quite fit in with her family, haunted by memories and her uncanny ability to "read" people. Her mother had helped develop that skill so she could be helpful in Lorelai's "profession" as a psychic. When Cassie is approached by the FBI to join a special unit of young profilers, she sees an opportunity to do some good. Cassie moves into an unusual group home in Quantico, Va., with other teens who have gifts useful to the FBI. In addition to her training, Cassie has to navigate the group dynamic, as each of her cohorts has a back story. A series of killings like Lorelai's in nearby Washington, D.C., makes it impossible for Cassie to remain on the sidelines despite the efforts of her superiors. This savvy thriller grabs readers right away. Cassie's outsider feelings are convincing and give credence to her actions throughout the story. There is enough violence, grisly description and plot surprises to keep crime-show devotees reading. Unanswered questions will have those readers on tenterhooks for the next in the series. (Mystery. 14 & up)

    The Naturals follows the story of Cassie. She's young, has a talent for reading people, and feels out of place. So when the FBI provides her with a chance to leave the people whom she "loves" but doesn't feel she belongs with, she takes it. If there is a farfetched chance she may learn something about her mother's disappearance, then, all the better. But this new world of similar teens, is not all it appears to be. Secrets are held, lines are blurred, and danger lurks in the shadows.

    I rather enjoyed this book. (Side note: The cover quotation compares it to Criminal Minds. So the whole time I am reading it, all I can picture was a younger Reid joining the house.) It was interesting and entertaining for a quick read. The story basically follows Cassie as she learns about her natural talent and goes through this training program with the other kids to focus and develop their talents before society can curb their instincts.

    But, to me, the core of this book seems to be the romance triangle. If you are not a fan of love triangles at all, you may want to skip this one. Most of the book Cassie fluctuates between the two boys, she notices and we notice things. If you are not a fan, it could easily be too much. I didn't mind the triangle so much, and I am curious as to which boy she might finally choose. But there were some times when I just wanted to smack them for being, well stereotypical teenagers. One can only take so much angst before one has to say enough. Or decides to strangle a certain cocky boy.

    The serial killer plot is what really kept me invested in the story. Every so often you get a bit from the killer's point of view tossed in there. I liked reading them as the story progressed and picking out details that I thought would be relevant to discovering just who it is. I was in the dark for most of the book, and I liked that. It's horrible when I figure out who done it in the very beginning. And the motive? Didn't see it coming at all. So that was a plus.

    I am hoping for book two that the characters will be fleshed out a bit more, the love triangle tones down a bit, and we get another great mystery to solve. But I am planning on reading the next book.

    My Review~
    I received this book in exchange for a honest review from the publisher Disney-Hyperion.
    This book is an intense read! I could not put it down once I started. The author had me captivated in the YA Crime thriller. This was mind-blowing!! I was left guessing the entire time but then I did not expect the murder to be who they were!! Then there is a love triangle between Micheal Cassie and Dean that is intense. I am voting for Dean though who is the misjudged teen. Did I say how interesting and cool looking the cover is?!! It makes me want to book shimmy to delve in and discover what is hidden in the present. I love love love this book! The writing is fast action packed ride that will leave you wanting more at the end. I can't wait to see if there is another book after this one. This author knows how to ensnare the reader within the first few chapters. This has got to be one of the best YA thrillers of 2013!!! Cassie is a somewhat normal girl who found her mother murder when she was younger. Her mother taught her how to read people. Now Cassie lives with her father's family and is struggling to fit in when she meets Micheal who intrigues her and enrolls her into a classified program meant for other teens who have a similar ability as Cassie. With the help of the teens, Cassie soon realizes that she is far too close to the case. Will she survive? Who is this murderer and what do they want with her?

    Wow. Just wow. This book is ridiculously amazing. Holy hell was it epic! Saying it's thrilling doesn't even cover how on-the-edge-of-your-seat this books keeps you. The Naturals was an absolutely fantastic YA read full of some crazy thrills, a spine-chilling murder mystery, and a sprinkle of romance. I LOVED THIS BOOK.

    Cassie was an amazing heroine. She's never gotten over her mother's murder and when she has a chance of learning the truth by joining the Naturals program, she jumps at it. But, she gets more than she bargained for when murders start happening that seem to center around her. Cassie was just great. She was strong, clever, and determined. I really liked her and I thought she was a wonderfully kick-ass heroine.

    Though the romance in this book is fairly light, most of the plot being centered around the mystery, it was still a major plot device, so I'll mention the love-interests.

    Michael was a charmer. But, there's a lot more to him than just that. Like all the other Naturals, his past is not pretty. The downside of him is that he's very sneaky. He can be quite manipulative. But I really liked him. When he wanted to, he could be very sweet.

    Dean was the other love-interest and, though I liked Michael, I had a preference for him, though probably just because I have a weakness for bad boys. His past was possibly the most grim and he has a definite chip in his shoulder because of that. But, he could also be very sweet and he was dedicated to solving cases, mostly because he felt he had to make up for what was in his past. He was wonderful.

    All the other characters, the Naturals and the FBI agents were wonderfully complex character. Each one drew me in and engaged my individually, which is quite a feat. They were all brilliantly drawn out.

    The world that the author created was incredible, with the Naturals. The way their skills were described, particularly how Cassie thought as she was using her ability, was just brilliant. I loved the world of the Naturals.

    The plot was amazing. It was fast paced and it was one hell of a roller coaster. The thrills were nonstop. The murder mystery was amazing. I never suspected who it turned out to be. My jaw literally dropped when I found out. I haven't heard news of a sequel yet, but after that ending, there better be one as soon as possible. I can't wait to see more for these amazing characters and this fantastic world. 

    The Naturals was a magnificent YA book! I LOVED it! If you like thrills, mystery, surprises, or romance, then you have to read this book because it's just mind-blowingly amazing.

    My favorite mystery/ thriller/ crime novel of the month!

    The plot is spectacular for YA mystery/thriller. Cassie is a “natural” at profiling people, being able to piece together who you are and what you want from the way you like your eggs. Jennifer Lynn Barns does a great job at writing a gifted protagonist who the reader can relate to. The book is like Sherlock  or Criminal Minds with teens. Cassie talent lands her in an FBI program for gifted teens who have the same kind of talents as Cass. Michael can read peoples emotions on their face, Sloane spit out  any fact and analyze numbers, Lia is a waking lie detecter and Dean is like Cass. Barnes is pretty gutsy with the casting for this ensemble but again she pulls it off without to much of an inhuman feeling to the characters. Working on old cases and trying to learn something of her mothers disappearance she stumbles onto a copy cat killer. Having some insight into the mind of the killer we get a feel of whats going on but are still left in the dark until the end. Then only thing that really worries me is the love triangle involved. Despite the fact that  almost every YA series has one, a love triangle it isn’t always written well and can often end up to be messy. But if Barnes can write it as well as she’s doing now, so be it. Im just hoping  that she can keep the thrill intact throughout  the series because I have high hopes for the next one.

    I couldn't put it down! By the time you get to the ending you want to keep on reading just to figure out what happens. You try to figure out who ends up being the killer and you can't,. This book is one of the better ones I've read in a while. I couldn't wait to be finished one page so I could read the next. A truly amazing crime mystery novel. I can't wait for the sequel.

    I can't help but feel that the author tried to com[plicate the love story *SPOILER* between Cassie, Dean, and Michael. This book is more of a romance then focusing on the actual investigations and that kind of put me off a bit from the story. Cassie is also kinda a Mary-Sue (a Mary Sue is a character that is pretty much perfect, in look in everything). But I guess it was an okay book, I'll definantly wait to read the sequal (if there is one) when its in paperback, so I don't have to waste almost 20 dollars on a book that I didn't really enjoy immensely. I suggest if you want to read it, wait for paperback. It isn't a bad read, but not a bestseller in my opinion.

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Disney Book Group and Netgalley.)
    17-year-old Cassie has always been good at reading people, but she never expected the FBI to notice.

    Offered an opportunity to be trained by the FBI, Cassie leaves her family to become a ‘natural’ profiler, one of only a few special teens chosen to work on cold cases.

    When Cassie then gets herself involved in a current murder investigation, she gets more than she bargained for, and finds herself in imminent danger.
    Who is the murderer? And can Cassie work it out before it’s too late?


    This was an interesting story, but it took a while to get going.

    Cassie was an okay character. I did find it a little odd how she didn’t seem to get home sick at all, but her talents were pretty impressive, and she at first reminded me a little of Sookie Stackhouse (because she was a waitress who knew what was going on in people’s heads).

    The storyline was okay, although I felt like it took a while to really get going. It didn’t seem to get interesting until the 40% mark, but after that we got some surprises in the way of secrets about the main characters, and Cassie actually got to see some crime scenes! I thought that Cassie’s talents were good, and I liked how she had these talents without anything supernatural going on!
    There was a romance element to this story, which inevitably turned into a love triangle unfortunately, but this wasn’t the main focus of the story.

    When the final plot twist was revealed it was surprising, but not majorly surprising, and I did have some questions about how believable it was. Funnily enough though the exact questions I had pertaining to the killer were also raised by one of the characters in the book, so it seems pretty obvious that the author had given thought to these questions when writing the story. Things were wrapped up quite nicely, but there was also plenty of room for further books, making the ending quite satisfactory.
    Overall; an interesting YA mystery/crime novel, that holds promise for the rest of the series.
    7 out of 10.

I love the cast of characters and the story as well. This one kept me on the edge and I didn’t guess the who dun nit.  Pick it up! Well worth the read!

    For those of you who read my reviews, you know that I'm a huge fan of mystery/thriller novels. Especially those that can confuse me and thrown in twists and turns to keep me guessing until the end. This book definitely satisfied all of those expectations and then some. The characters are interesting - especially Cassie and the other Naturals that are in the program with her. They all have unique personalities to go along with their interesting natural gifts. Cassie's character is the leading lady, so we get a closer look at her than the others. She's smart, talented, wary of others, and still grieving the death of her mother. She feels like she hasn't fit in anywhere since her mom died - until joining the Naturals program.

    There's a bit of a love triangle factor in the book, but I didn't think it was overwhelming and it didn't snatch attention away from the main plot of the book. The plot was fantastic - it's centered around a secret FBI program for teens who are gifted or Naturals at certain specific talents. Talents that, when honed, will help the FBI solve cold cases of serial killers. Things start out creepy as we get a glimpse into the mind of a murderer, who writes in snippets under the name YOU. I was a bit confused at first with this strange second point of view, but once the story got going and you learn more about the characters and the plot, it makes a lot of sense (in a totally freaky way). The story was fresh and original with a fast pace and a great flow that immediately had me hooked from the beginning. The mystery was incredibly well written with lots of thrills and tons of unexpected twists and turns that kept the characters - and myself - guessing until the very end. I definitely got sucked into the book and ended up reading the entire thing in one sitting because I just couldn't stop. It's definitely one of the best books I've read so far this year! Very highly recommended for fans of mysteries and thrillers!
