The Candidates 
by Inara Scott 
August 2010

Dancia Lewis is far from popular. And that's not just because of her average grades or her less-than-glamorous wardrobe. In fact, Dancia's mediocrity is a welcome cover for her secret: whenever she sees a person threatening someone she cares about, things just...happen. Cars skid. Structures collapse... When recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up in her living room to offer her a full scholarship, Dancia's days of living under the radar may be over... But not even Dancia could have imagined what awaits her behind the gates of Delcroix Academy. -from Goodreads

Are there any that I missed? Let me know in the comments.


  1. I like fire on covers. It's so mesmerizing. One of my favorite fire covers is Betrayal by Gillian Shields.

  2. Oooh! Nice one! I'm adding the first book in that series to my "to be read" list.
