The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Naturals was similar to Criminal Minds in a lot of ways...FBI, UNSUBS, profiling, etc. But the profilers in The Naturals are teenagers.
5 years ago Cassie's mom was suspected to be murdered, but a body was never found and the case is still open.
Cassie, who is now 17, lives with her family in Colorado when she is approached by the FBI. But they aren't contacting her about her mom, they're interested in her 'natural' ability of profiling people; their behavior, personality and environment.
Cassie joins The Natural's team (consists of 2 FBI agents, 5 teenagers and a retired marine who isn't directly involved, but is definitely around) and dives right into the world of profiling...helping to solve cold cases.
But there's quickly a twist...events begin to unfold very close to home. Not everyone is who they seem. Who do you trust? Who is the killer? The book becomes very suspenseful and on-the-edge-of-your-seat about 50% through the book...until the very end.
I really enjoyed this book...the mystery, the suspense, and so much more!
