School for Psychics

I enjoyed School for Psychics, by K.C. Archer. It moves right along and has an intriguing premise. Having said that, despite references to the ages of the characters as being twenty-somethings, it reads more like the adventures of middle grade teens. Yes, one character is a former policeman.
