Summary (From Goodreads): Caitlyn, a telepath, lives in a world where all paranormal talents are illegal. She is on the run from government ParaTroopers. When Caitlyn falls for Alex, a Normal, and discovers dangerous renegade Paranormals, she must choose between staying in hiding to protect herself or taking a stand to save the world. 

My Take: At first, I found it hard to get into the book. It's not that it was dull, or there were to many little details. It started so fast, and I almost couldn't keep up. There was some terminology that I wasn't sure of what it meant, but I quickly got familiarized. I thought that Caitlyn was incredibly easy to identify with, you know, besides the only paranormal talent that she had. Plus, she mentions how great The Hunger Games are at one point, and I was actually lamely excited about that. I also think that Cheryl did a great job at perfecting what a teenage girl would be thinking. Caitlyn was confused, angry and happy in all the right places. Caitlyn's relationship with her mom was strained at best, and with the rest of her family, it was interesting to see the roll's reversed. Cheryl took twists that I didn't at all expect, and it made for an interesting read. I can't stand when I can guess what happens half way though, but with this, I couldn't. Once I thought I had figured it out, Cheryl would throw something in there that would completely derail me. 

Final Thoughts: If you like The Hunger Games, or any other dystopian set novel, I'd recommend this. I loved this book, and am so grateful for the opportunity to have read it!
