Read The Scattering (The Outliers, #2) Online Free - New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight raises the stakes in the second book of the heart-pounding Outliers trilogy, a uniquely speculative story about secrets, betrayal, and a world where one small group of people are blessed—or cursed—with an incredible power.
Wylie may have escaped the camp in Maine, but she is far from safe. The best way for her to protect herself is to understand her ability, fast. But after spending a lifetime trying to ignore her own feelings, giving in to her ability to read other peoples’ emotions is as difficult as it is dangerous.
And Wylie isn’t the only one at risk. Ever since they returned home, Jasper has been spiraling, wracked with guilt over what happened to Cassie. After all they’ve been through together, Wylie and Jasper would do anything for each other, but she doesn’t know if their bond is strong enough to overcome demons from the past.
It is amid this uncertainty and fear that Wylie finds herself confronted with a choice. She was willing to do whatever it took to help Cassie, but is she prepared to go to the same extremes to help complete strangers . . . even if they are just like her?

Me while reading this book: What a colossal mess.
Me after finishing: But that cliffhanger...
Still not sure it's enough to bring me back for book 3, though.

A very fast read, plot keeps moving along. I really like Wylie and Jasper, care about what happens to them. I like how the author makes feeling and sensitivity a gift, rather than a flaw. I am amused how she tried to plug a hole in her plot in the first book in the initial pages of the second, bu...

So, to recap my review of The Outliers (book 1), what I really liked was how fast-paced and thrilling it was and the relationship between Wylie and Jasper (especially the character of Jasper). Wh...
