Back in 2013, I had added The Naturals as a “to read” book. Unfortunately I forgot about it until just a couple weeks ago when I re-discovered it after reading Barnes’s Fixer series. In a way I am glad that I forgot about it because I have plowed through all three books in a just a couple weeks…and now I have to wait for book 4….until November….
Cassie’s mother was murdered. It had always been just her and her mother so when her father didn’t want to take her, she was sent with his family and she learned to accept these people who hadn’t ever been a part of her life.

Cassie meets 4 other teens who all have special gifts. Will she learn to trust this band of misfits? Will she ever solve her mother’s murder? Will her father ever be a part of her life?
