A whole lot more boy drama than teen psychic thriller.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fast Paced

This paced YA read, there are A LOT of characters, so you have to work to keep up. I was disappointed that i had to wait so long for the finale to come out and ended up dropping the series before complete.

Great :)

I've owned this book since I was probably an 8th grader. I re-read it every few years. The characters are cool and enjoyable. The plot is different. The villain is creepy, though not scary.
