SKYLIGHT BOOKS presents LAUREN SHIPPEN for her debut novel THE INFINITE NOISE
“What if the X-Men, instead of becoming superheroes, decided to spend some time in therapy?” (Vox)
From Lauren Shippen, the creator of the beloved and award-winning podcast The Bright Sessions, comes The Infinite Noise, the first novel in a series that follows the struggles and discoveries of three teenagers with supernatural abilities who end up on the couch of Dr. Bright, a mysterious therapist who specializes in atypicals.
Caleb is an Atypical, an individual with enhanced abilities. Which sounds pretty cool except Caleb's ability is extreme empathy—he feels the emotions of everyone around him. Being an empath in high school would be hard enough, but Caleb's life becomes even more complicated when he keeps getting pulled into the emotional orbit of one of his classmates, Adam. Caleb's therapist, Dr. Bright, encourages Caleb to explore this connection by befriending Adam. As he and Adam grow closer, Caleb learns more about his ability, himself, his therapist—who seems to know a lot more than she lets on—and just how dangerous being an Atypical can be.
