Rating: 4/5 stars

This book was chosen for our monthly book club and I'm glad it was because I don't know if I would have picked it up otherwise. 

This urban sci-fi story follows Teagan, a girl with psychokinesis. She works with this underground group to use her abilities to help and/or harm people. When one of her missions goes awry, a man ends up dead in a way only someone with her abilities could have done, but she didn't kill him. She and her team have twenty hours to prove her innocence, but Teagan is more interested in finding the other psychokinetic she now knows is out there. 

We also have a second POV from a mysterious side character named Jake. Jake has psychokinesis. Just like Teagan, he also thinks he's the only person with psychokinesis. He's been given a list of three people to kill in the next twenty-four hours and if he doesn't then he'll end up dead himself. 

This book was fast-paced and super funny. It was also quite vulgar, but I think it really worked in this type of story. Teagan is chill and sarcastic and full of personality. She cracks jokes left and right and I was actually laughing out loud at times. I also enjoyed the air of mystery surrounding the reasoning behind how people became psychokinetic and who was behind the missions and why. 

I liked the dual perspectives that give the reader an edge in knowing more than the characters do. Especially when the ending came. There were some events I totally did not see coming and was very surprised by, but in a good way. I would recommend this IF it sounds like something you'd enjoy; I know this kind of story isn't for everyone. 

This book could be read as a standalone because the missions and mysteries herein are wrapped up by the end, but the characters talk about future plans and there is an open-ended-ness to what Teagan would be doing now that the book is done. I wouldn't mind reading more books in this world, but I'm also not going out of my way to read them as soon as I can.
