Description

When her acceptance to Columbia is revoked just weeks before graduation, Kassandra Black is desperate. She hastily enrolls in the summer program at Henley University under the watchful eye of her great-uncle Brian. She figures successfully assisting him in his H.E.A.R. program (Henley Engineering Anomalies Research), will get her into college somewhere. As Kass gets to know the four other H.E.A.R. students, she realizes that she overlooked the “Anomalies” part of their acronym. They’ve all been recruited to help Brian run experiments that gauge Extrasensory Perception—including, to her astonishment, Kass herself. But Kass would know if she were psychic, right?

Praise For HEAR

Praise for H.E.A.R.

"A clever integration of psychological references, teenage angst, and a good old-fashioned whodunit... The flawed characters, unlikely alliances, and fast plot twists makes this volume a page-turner."
School Library Journal

“This action-packed thriller about beautiful psychic teenagers and how emotions change our ability to ‘see’ is a dazzling and affecting page-turner. Epstein’s writing is smart, funny and truly sensational.”
New York Times bestselling author Gary Shteyngart

"Epstein's H.E.A.R., about a smart crew of teens with an intuitive gift, is fast, dangerous, funny, and oddly real. What a great read! I loved it."
—Geoff Herbach, bestselling author of Stupid Fast and I’m With Stupid

“As someone who has always fantasized about what it might be like to read minds or predict the future, I devoured every page.”
Zoe Aarsen, author of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board
