Description

An entrancing new series starring a funny, impulsive, and sometimes self-congratulatory young woman who discovers she has psychic abilities—and then must decide whether she will use her skills for good or…not.

Teddy Cannon isn’t your typical twenty-something woman. Yes she’s resourceful, bright, and scrappy. But she can also read people with uncanny precision. What she doesn’t realize: she’s actually psychic.

When a series of bad decisions leads Teddy to a run-in with the police, a mysterious stranger intervenes. He invites her to apply to the School for Psychics, a facility hidden off the coast of San Francisco where students are trained like Delta Force operatives: it’s competitive, cutthroat, and highly secretive. They’ll learn telepathy, telekinesis, investigative skills, and SWAT tactics. And if students survive their training, they go on to serve at the highest levels of government, using their skills to protect America, and the world.

In class, Teddy befriends Lucas, a rebel without a cause who can start and manipulate fire; Jillian, a hipster who can mediate communication between animals and humans; and Molly, a hacker who can apprehend the emotional state of another individual. But just as Teddy feels like she’s found where she might belong, strange things begin to happen: break-ins, missing students, and more. It leads Teddy to accept a dangerous mission that will ultimately cause her to question everything—her teachers, her friends, her family, and even herself.

Set in a world very much like our own, School for Psychics is the first book in a stay-up-all night series.

Teddy Cannon is a gambler in Las Vegas, in disguise, having been banned from most casinos. She isn't really a cheat, but uses her magical ability to 'read' people in order to win. Teddy's talent leads her to a school for psychics where she meets others like her and embarks on her studies. This is a YA novel, with all rhe teenage angst you could want. I am a little old for this book, but I think it would strike a cord with a lot of 13 year olds.

I would give this book a 3.5 star rating. This was a really enjoyable read. The story was pretty tropey but I thought the author did a great job of creating suspense throughout the story, the reader is constantly asking themselves who they can trust.
