I remember reading this book back when I was in high school when I just first started out in 2012-2013. It was part of a series. I can't remember a whole lot about it. I believe the cover wasn't a hard cover but a flexible one and there was more than three books in the series.

It was about a group of teens that take a special class in high school for their special abilities and no one knows about their special abilities except for the teacher. Pretty much a safe place for them. Every new book changed the main character to another character from the classroom.

I can't remember what the teenagers (both genders) looked like but I know they were from all different social groups in high school and they did fight off bad people I think or some sort of evil. I believe one student had a power of shape shifting or taking over a body. One could read minds. One was able to become invisible. They were a part of this class to control their abilities too.

  • Out of Sight, Out of Mind

    Thirteen year old Queen-of-mean Amanda Beeson, wakes up one morning in the wrong body. She's become lonely, unfashionable Tracey Devon - one of Amanda's targets for bullying. Amanda discovers that Tracey, ignored at home and at school, has the ability to turn invisible. Amanda sets out to rescue her one-time victim from obscurity - as well as rescuing herself from Tracey's life.

  • Better Late Than Never

    Teenage goth and occasional rebel Jenna Kelly can read anyone's mind without even trying. When her alcoholic mother has to go into hospital, a stranger turns up who says he's her long-lost dad, and promises her a better future. While Jenna is happy to discover what it's like to have a proper parent, the gifted class have their concerns, but will Jenna listen?

  • Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

    Shy, dreamy Emily's premonitions aren't always quite right, and even she does not trust them. But when her classmates start disappearing, someone has to listen.

  • Finders Keepers

  • Now You See Me

    Who is the spy in the gifted class? Mean Amanda is out of character volunteering in the school office. Principal Mr Jackson finds/puts a knife in her locker and expels mind-reader Jenna to an institution with a corrupt aide. Now on her own investigating, Tracey turns invisible and lands in danger.

  • Speak No Evil

    Everyone in the gifted class has a secret, but Carter Street is the most mysterious student of all. He never speaks, and no one knows who he is or where he came from; they just know that like them, he's special. But there's something going on behind Carter's blank stare - something dangerous!
