The Infinite Noise is a stunning debut novel based on Lauren Shippen’s wildly popular podcast The Bright Sessions.
Caleb Michaels is your average teenager. But when Caleb starts experiencing mood swings that are out of the ordinary, his life changes forever.
Caleb is an Atypical, an individual with enhanced abilities. Through sessions with his therapist Dr. Bright, Caleb discovers he’s a powerful empath—he’s able to feel the emotions of everyone around him. Caleb’s life becomes more complicated when he finds himself pulled into the emotional orbit of one of his classmates, Adam. It’s a mesmerizing, must-read queer YA fantasy.
