This is a difficult book to review if only because a lot of people are going to be put off by the topic in general Do we really need another book about kids that go to a magical school no one knows about The answer here for me is yes The WritingKC Archer has done a beautiful job of writing a fast paced interesting and well put together novel in School for Psychics It would be unfair to say that this isn't original because Archer's school is very different from those I've read about in the past Additionally Archer has a way of drawing the reader in I didn't want to put this book down RomanceOne of the best written awkward teenage romances I've read in awhile I love how you think maybe it will be one way and then it's not It's not insta love; it's insta lust at times; but that is real and does happen Especially to teenagers There are both sweet and awkward moments between our lead gal and the primary love interest Just like in real life Lead Gal is a Bad GirlI love our lead gal and her genuine bad girl status that is established right away in Chapter one She has an authenticity that spoke to me I was personally far from the best teenager lol I got in trouble a lot not just from my parents; but from law enforcement and at school So I connected with our lead gal I also sympathized with her as it was clear that many of the things happening to her were perhaps not all her fault Many were just a 'side effect' of her psychic ability being erratic I think for many teens whether it's psychic ability or hormones it's difficult to really figure out the world around you And events can be experienced in such a vivid way when you are a childteen that they tend to be overwhelmed This confusion with the world inability to trust anyone and difficulty fitting in is all brilliantly portrayed by Archer in School for Psychics It doesn't matter 'triggers' or 'creates' the feelings you have be it ESP or not because at the end of the day these feelings manifest in the same way Archer does a great job of correlating this urban fantasy book with real life situations OverallSchool for Psychics is a clear example of why you can't judge a book by it's troupe Just because you've read something similar before doesn't mean that the book in front of you isn't just as good or even better than the five books you read this year with a similar theme And let's face it we all love the kids going to a special school troupe Why I think it's often because we wish we were special enough to be pulled from our current existence into a magical world where we are important Let's face it it's all about standing out in some way shape or form and feeling critical to events and people around you Archer captures all this and in her characters and intricate plot I just need the second book nowFor this and of my reviews please visit my blog at Epic Reading Please note I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley This is an honest and unbiased review

Ok so I was super intrigued by the premise of this book Psychics I'm in but wow this book was not what I was hoping or expecting at allTeddy our main character has a gift of being able to read people She is offered a place in School of Psychics with others like herself that have different special abilities I did not like Teddy whatsoever felt like I was kind of reading a YA novel but Teddy was super immature to my liking but she's supposed to be an adult But haha I guess we all know one or two people that act like children lol I thought the book would have picked up speed when Teddy arrived at this school but it fell extremely flat for me I was so bored and had to put it down multiple times to finish this one I'm not really into fantasy novels and unfortunately this one just wasn't for me 2 stars for me on this oneThank you so much Simon Schuster and NetGalley for an arc in exchange for my honest reviewPublication date 4318Published to GR 32318
