One month into her junior year, sixteen-year-old Violet McKenna transfers to the Winterhaven School in New York’s Hudson Valley, inexplicably drawn to the boarding school with high hopes. Leaving Atlanta behind, she’s looking forward to a fresh start--a new school, and new classmates who will not know her deepest, darkest secret, the one she’s tried to hide all her life: strange, foreboding visions of the future.

But Winterhaven has secrets of its own, secrets that run far deeper than Violet’s. Everyone there--every student, every teacher--has psychic abilities, 'gifts and talents,' they like to call them. Once the initial shock of discovery wears off, Violet realizes that the school is a safe haven for people like her. Soon, Violet has a new circle of friends, a new life, and maybe even a boyfriend--Aidan Gray, perhaps the smartest, hottest guy at Winterhaven.

Only there’s more to Aidan than meets the eye--much, much more. And once she learns the horrible truth, there’s no turning back from her destiny. Their destiny. Together, Violet and Aidan must face a common enemy--if only they can do so without destroying each other first.

I've always been a fan of books, tv shows, movies, etc. about people with powers.  Which is why I love Ghost Whisperer, Charmed, and many others.  This book sounds like it's goes right along with those.  I'm anxious to see how this one turns out.

I used to think I didn't like books like that, but read one recently that I loved, so I'd sure give this one a try.

I'm from the Hudson Valley originally, and I'm a sucker for books about boarding schools for kids with special powers, so this looks like it is right up my alley. Thanks for putting this book on my radar!
