Storyline

In “The Outliers,” Wylie has always had great instincts, but she dismissed them as nothing more, until her best friend went missing. She finds Cassie in a remote spot in the woods with a group called the Outliers, who claim to be able to harness “intuition” and turn it into a powerful psychological weapon called EQ Transference. Bewitched by the utopia they seem to have created, and thrilled to be surrounded by people like her, Wylie joins the Outliers. But within days, she finds herself running for her life. Wylie doesn't know it, but she has the potential to become the most powerful Reader of all. There are many who would go to great lengths to destroy her, and she can't trust anyone – least of all, the Outliers.
