This book has such an intriguing concept Basically, the FBI recruits a group of teens who everyone has given up on and gives them mysterious powers The teens work together with the FBI to solve a murder with their new psychic abilities, and their existing issues disappear I really enjoyed the many twists and turns throughout the novel and the uncertainty surrounding the FBI agents This in an entertaining scientific thriller that is sure to leave the reader on the edge of their seat There is such a great cast of char I received a free copy of this book thanks to Netgalley and the publisher Regardless that, this is my honest opinion3.
5 Stars The Lost Causes is a book with a really interesting concept teens with psychological issues given superpowers in order to help the FBI to solve a crime Looks great right It is I had some problems with it, but overall was really entertaining It turned out to be a page turner, I literally didn t want to put it down because I was so intrigued about what was going to happen The mystery was well developed, It was hard to guess who the murderer was until the last 20%, plus there were some plot twists that were really good.
Other thing was that even when there are multiple POV, I think I counted 7 , I never got confused, which could have happened considering the number.
The first problem that I had were the instas Insta recovery, Insta friend 1 StarsThis was a mess I usually try and give a book a chance However this book was terrible I read this book about a year ago and I just got around to copying the review I wrote in my journal and adding it here Cons start with the bad I am honestly dumbfounded From the constant language that was just so not needed to the plot The characters were so unlikable and I just couldn t get into the story Pros end on a good note I really think if both of the authors would have put a littleeffort into this story it would have been amazing It just wasn t what I wanted in a book.
Ü The Lost Causes â I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and I was very excited by the premise I think it s very X Files meets the Breakfast Club Five little teenage disappointments who are given special abilities by the FBI to solve a cold case The characters were so easy to get attached to, and I loved the diversity of their powers The twists and turns were endless, and kept me wanting to turn page after page
25 Stars I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was the story of five teenagers that were marked out as Lost Causes by their family and other people close to them They get to know each other and have to find a murderer.
I don t want to say too much about this book because I didn t remember the summary when I started reading it and I think that s how it s best.
I really enjoyed it.
The characters were interesting even if they seemed clich at first.
The intrigue kept me guessing the entire time and I could not put the book down.
The relationships between the main characters were all very interesting, whether it was the friendships or the romances I found myself rooting for them.
All in all, a very good read.
