Sophia and Annie are sister with special talents.  Annie is blind, but can see glimpses of the future through her visions.  Sophia has perfect intuition that will never steer her wrong.  However, since their parents died, Annie and Sophia have been taught in a special school that uses their talents to control political and financial outcomes in the nation.  Sophia and Annie want out, but the school blackmails Sophia by threatening to kill Annie.  The only way to go against the school is to be spontaneous so the Readers, people whose talent it is to read other’s minds, don’t stop Annie from going against her orders.  Annie decides against killing one of the boys that she was sent to assassinate, and it brings a whole adventure of trouble. 
 This book is great.  I love Kiersten White’s characters and her writing style always draws me into the world she has created.  The book is told from the two characters, Annie and Sophia, and flashes back in time throughout the story.  I can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out.  It was a fun read.
