Simon & Schuster
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. She’s resourceful. She’s bright. She’s scrappy. 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.

A different take on discovering paranormal talents. Ever wonder why some are so lucky with cards, dice or the horses? Maybe, just maybe, they have a touch of a 6th sense! (Oh, please let that be me!)

I really liked the main character Teddy, a 24-year-old with a gambling addiction and in serious trouble for her debts. There are probably a few of those out there that would take the chance Teddy had been given to erase their debts and start fresh!

I have read quite a few "School for...." type books from various authors. I enjoyed the majority of them and most share similar storyboards. Even though Teddy is 24, I felt like this read could qualify for the YA genre just as well as fantasy/paranormal. Archer did a great job of character development and storyline while connecting some real-life scenarios. Anytime I pick up a new story and want to read to the end tells me the author has more than accomplished their purpose of great entertainment. I will look forward to any other installments in this series!

Getting 4 "know when to fold 'em" sheep!
