This Riot Recommendation of best school novels is sponsored by School for Psychics by K. C. Archer.

School for Psychics is the first book in a new series starring a young woman with extraordinary abilities who must decide whether she will use her skills for good—or not.

Teddy Cannon isn’t your typical twenty-something woman. She’s resourceful, bright, scrappy. She’s also psychic. After a series of bad decisions and a run-in with the police, she finds herself at an elite facility where students are trained to use their skills to protect America, and the world.

From Harry Potter to A Separate Peace there are so many school novels out there. What are your favorites? Tell us in the comments and we’ll be back with your picks!
