Jessica Etting & Alyssa Schwartz are here to tell us about their fabulous YA title The Lost Causes. The Lost Causes are five teens with serious problems and only one thing in common: people have written them off. Now they’re thrown together in group therapy, with vague promises of healing. Their problems do go away when they drink the water their therapist gives them. But that’s because it’s not just water ... This is a thrilling sci fi book that you will love reading too. And it brings up lots of great topics to talk about with your teens.
Unknowingly, the teens have ingested a serum that gives them psychic powers, part of an FBI plan to find out who was behind the grisly murder that has rocked their small town. Their new powers will help them uncover clues and follow leads that have eluded the authorities, and their outsider status gives them the perfect cover.
