Recommended Age: New Adult 
Genre: Science Fiction (Thriller) 
About the Book:

What if you had a power you had to hide from everyone--until now? In this bold sci-fi action thriller, a secret training program at West Point is turning misfits into a new generation of heroes. 

Welcome to The Point, future leaders of the Posthuman Age.

New Cadets, society is not ready for you. The oldest, fiercest fear is ignorance. The general population would burn you at the metaphorical stake.
Here, you will train alongside other posthumans. You will learn to control and maximize your powers and to use them for the greater good. You will discover camaraderie and purpose.
You will become a part of something bigger than yourselves: the Long Gray Line. 

Scarlett Winter has always been an outsider, and not only because she's a hardcore daredevil and born troublemaker--she has been hiding superhuman powers she doesn't yet understand. Now she's been recruited by a secret West Point unit for cadets with extraordinary abilities. Scarlett and her fellow students are learning to hone their skills, from telekinetic combat to running recon missions through strangers' dreamscapes. At The Point, Scarlett discovers that she may be the most powerful cadet of all. With the power to control pure energy, she's a human nuclear bomb--and she's not sure she can control her powers much longer.

Even in this army of outsiders, Scarlett feels like a misfit all over again, but when a threat that endangers her fellow students arises from the school's dark past, duty calls and Scarlett must make a choice between being herself and becoming something even greater: a hero.

This title will be released on August 7, 2018.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I thought this was young adult but it turned out to be more new adult to adult via the sexual content and other things in this one. 
Do I Recommend this book? Not really for me

Notes and Opinions: This one was kind of like a failed X-Men sort of thing. It tried to be what x-men is but didnt do it very well.  I had major issues with all the sex and the main character went from being very bad ass to being a push over.  So this one for me just didn't work out and was fairly unpleasant to read. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Not YA!
