Review: Hear

Hear by Robin Epstein

Publication Date: December 29, 2015
Publisher: Soho Teen 

Kassandra Black thought her life was over when she got expelled from her high school and the admission to her dream school revoked. With nowhere else to apply and her future in shambles, she must spend the summer working in her mysterious uncle's teen program, H.E.A.R., at Henley University in exchange for acceptance into the school. Turns out, she and her fellow students in H.E.A.R. are handpicked lab rats on her uncle's quest to analyze ESP capacity. Soon, Kassandra realizes that she is doing things with her mind she never thought possible, and she is terrified. If that weren't enough, an ominous mystery, with more questions being asked than answered every day, is taking over the lives of her and the other H.E.A.R.s. With their lives and others in danger every step closer they get to the truth, they must learn to use their gifts and work together in order to survive.
In the never ending stream of new books being released, it is rare to find a unique concept, let alone one as well written as this. The story moved along quickly without unnecessary prose, but gave enough details and emotions to add depth to the characters. I really enjoyed how the story focused more on the paranormal and dangerous aspects of their ESP rather than the romantic subplots. I found myself sucked into the story, reading for hours at a time in anticipation for what would happen next. I would highly recommend it for anyone with in interest in sci-fi, paranormal, mystery, action, romance, or fantasy.
