Summary

New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight raises the stakes in the second book of the heart-pounding Outliers trilogy, a uniquely speculative story about secrets, betrayal, and a world where one small group of people are blessed—or cursed—with an incredible power.

Wylie may have escaped the camp in Maine, but she is far from safe. The best way for her to protect herself is to understand her ability, fast. But after spending a lifetime trying to ignore her own feelings, giving in to her ability to read other peoples’ emotions is as difficult as it is dangerous.

And Wylie isn’t the only one at risk. Ever since they returned home, Jasper has been spiraling, wracked with guilt over what happened to Cassie. After all they’ve been through together, Wylie and Jasper would do anything for each other, but she doesn’t know if their bond is strong enough to overcome demons from the past.

It is amid this uncertainty and fear that Wylie finds herself confronted with a choice. She was willing to do whatever it took to help Cassie, but is she prepared to go to the same extremes to help complete strangers . . . even if they are just like her?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Wylie’s compelling first-person narration, tough conflicts with others, and her courage against formidable odds make this an unputdownable thriller…A riveting adventure that rewards returning readers.” Kirkus Reviews
“Fans of the first book will dive into this second entry with gusto, as Wylie’s journey continues in a compelling fashion. The final page features a shocking development that will keep readers hooked for the final book in the trilogy.” VOYA
“Breathlessly fast-paced and enticingly suspenseful.” Washington Post
“This fast-paced thriller will have readers pinned to their seats with all the twists and turns.” Booklist

“A heart-pounding mystery that will leave readers desperate for the next book.” Suzanne Young, author of Feral Youth
“A fast-paced, emotional, and darkly compelling novel with an ending that works like a catapult. I can’t wait to find out what McCreight has hidden up her sleeves!” Julianna Baggott, author of the Pure series
