When her acceptance to Columbia is revoked just weeks before graduation, Kassandra Black is desperate. She hastily enrolls in the summer program at Henley University under the watchful eye of her great-uncle Brian.

As Kass gets to know the four other H.E.A.R. students, she realizes that she overlooked the "Anomalies" part of their acronym. They've all been recruited to help Brian run experiments that gauge Extrasensory Perception—including, to her astonishment, Kass herself. But Kass would know if she were psychic, right?
