Romantic police procedurals are a television staple, and The Naturals series brings this winning dynamic to young adult fiction. The teens making up this crime solving team fairly leap off the page, young and sexy and gifted.

Like my favorite television police procedurals, THE NATURALS takes plausible skill and science to the redline, where serial killers and the FBI profilers who hunt them may as well be magical monsters and heroes. I fell in love with these characters and their world, and can’t wait for another chance to visit the Natural’s clubhouse at Quantico.
There was an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer back in season one called “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” that dealt with the idea of people disappearing if no one one ever noticed them. A girl that was totally ignored became invisible and ended up carted away by a mysterious government agency. Fast forward to 2013 and Jennifer Lynn Barnes has taken the idea of invisible teens and a shady institute and spun it into her book NOBODY.
