Goodreads Synopsis: 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.

From Goodreads

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes was a great action packed thriller about seriel killers and teens with powers to undercover cold cases from the FBI. I was happy I picked up The Naturals since I've been reading a lot of relaxing books, I decided to kick it up. Did I regret it? No, I really liked The Naturals!

The Naturals was a fast-paced thriller that had a great plot. A protagonist that reads peoples minds? The FBI? Cracking cold cases? Count me in! It had everything to grab anyone, and I did deliver on some parts. I really liked Cassie. She was a great character that didn't take herself to seriously. And she brough the story alive. Every aspect of the book was done amazingly! From the characters to the pacing. It all moved together great and you'll definitely find yourself moving the pages fast enough to move on. 

The writing was bothering for me. At times, I would forget who would be talking or what Cassie was talking about. And that usually meant re-reading the chapter, which kills because I love the story and I want more! The book also had pages titled "YOU" and I thought it was cool, but I felt myself just skipping them and moving on.

Overall, The Naturals was a great thriller I think anyone should pick up, especially if your looking for something to spice up your summer reads :)
