Five teens, who never would have thought they had anything in common, will soon find out that, aside from being misfits, the only way out is to be there for and trust each other on this very strange class trip.

Iz and Joe have always been good friends. Although Joe doesn't really know why, since it seems like whenever he is around Iz, Iz is around trouble, and Joe just so happens to end up tangled in the mess. And just like Joe, Iz is pretty confused on why they were chosen to be included on this field trip, since most of the time there is always a reason why Iz would not be able to go.

Helen was never one to be quiet. She was never one to not get into fights with teachers. So when her teacher makes her leave the classroom for talking too loud, it's no surprise to anyone. What is surprising, though, is how well not only Helen but also the teacher were nice about the situation. Which is good, since Helen still gets to go on the trip.

Mia is not really a people person. She would rather be around anything other than human beings. Of course, that doesn't really help her social skills. But this trip seems like it wouldn't be so bad for Mia, at least that is what the teachers in the Learning Support Room say to her.

Chris is pretty smart and pretty good at multitasking. This trip, to him, is just like any other trip, which is why he isn't too worried about it. If only he knew.

All five were specially handpicked to go on this once in a lifetime trip -- but can they handle what's in store for them?

THE OUTCASTS could be labeled as peculiar... in a good way. By reading this novel, just like the characters, you won't know what's coming next. This is the perfect read for anyone who awaits suspense and a thriller.
