In a nutshell: gripping adventure that keeps readers tense and guessing
As revealed in the first book in this spell-binding series, Wylie is one of a group of people known as Outliers, able to read people’s emotions and intentions. It’s a gift that’s already brought her into danger and in this new episode she’s even more exposed: there are creepy government agents tracking her, and she finds herself under lock and key more than once. And Wylie has other things on her mind too, like working out what really happened to her mother, apparently killed in a car crash. Wylie is a terrific central character, tough and determined, and her punchy first person narrative combined with the rising tension makes this unputdownable reading. ~ Andrea Reece
The nail-bitingly tense sequel to The Outliers by New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight. Wylie, trust your instincts. The line goes dead...Wylie may have escaped the isolated camp in the woods, but she is far from safe. The only way to protect herself is to understand her strange abilities as an Outlier, fast. But allowing herself to read other peoples' emotions isn't just difficult, it's dangerous. And Wylie isn't the only one at risk.
Ever since they returned home, Jasper has been wracked with guilt. He can't let go of the blame he so desperately feels, especially when someone has been taunting him with reminders of it. Wylie and Jasper would do anything for each other, but is their bond is strong enough to overcome demons from the past?
Amid this uncertainty and fear, Wylie is confronted with a choice. She was willing to do whatever it took to help Cassie, but is she prepared to go to the same extremes for complete strangers...even if they are just like her?
New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight raises the stakes in the second book of this heart-pounding series about secrets, betrayal and a group of people are blessed - or cursed - with an incredible power.
