School for Psychics: Book One – a Review | Lisa's WritopiaThis novel follows Teddy Cannon, a misfit gambler who has been banned from the casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. Teddy has never been proven to be a cheater, but her ability to tell when people are lying has come in handy at the poker table. When Teddy is offered an opportunity to attend a sch. When Teddy is offered an opportunity to attend a school for psychics, Whitfield, that trains them to be operatives in government fields it seems to good to be true. The challenge Teddy faces is to pass her exams and not get kicked out of the school that can save her from destruction. However, this book is bland and not at all what I was expecting. Either I was flying through the pages or forcing myself to carry on.
Review: School for Psychics by K.C. Archer
An entrancing new series starring a funny, impulsive, and sometimes self-congratulatory young woman who discovers she has psychic abilities—and then must decide whether she will use her skills for good or…not. But she can also read people with uncanny precision. When a series of bad decisions leads Teddy to a run-in with the police, a mysterious stranger intervenes. And if students survive their training, they go on to serve at the highest levels of government, using their skills to protect America, and the world. In class, Teddy befriends Lucas, a rebel without a cause who can start and manipulate fire; Jillian, a hipster who can mediate communication between animals and humans; and Molly, a hacker who can apprehend the emotional state of another individual. It leads Teddy to accept a dangerous mission that will ultimately cause her to question everything—her teachers, her friends, her family, and even herself. Set in a world very much like our own, School for Psychics is the first book in a stay-up-all night series.

Thanks to Simon and Schuster for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. In fairness to the author and the book I think my reading has suffered a little in the past week or so due to feeling under the weather so there is that and on top of that I seem to have read a run of books lately with similar themes which undoubtedly has left me feeling a bit jaded. As it is, yes, this was entertaining. Would I continue on? The start of the story introduces us to our young protagonist Teddy Cannon. Teddy has spent most of her life screwing up any opportunities that come her way.

Harry Potter went to a special school for wizards where he learned to control his powers. Teddy Cannon is going to a school where she is learning to control and use her psychic abilities. When the story begins, Teddy has been banned from every poker table in Las Vegas. She has disguised herself and is sneaking into one. A lot of money is needed, and it is needed fast. Even though her winning streaks are almost unstoppable because she somehow knows the cards the other players are holding and knows what they are thinking, it never enters her mind that she could be a psychic.
