When Rinnie Noelle, Greensburg’s youngest masked crime-fighter, totally botches her first mission and lets a frightening kidnapper escape, she is reassigned to protect her high school from arch-nemesis Mason Draudimon, a bully who has picked on her since fifth grade. The thought bores her to death. She could easily dust the lockers with his face, which would be fun, but it would also give away the secret of her true identity.
But the assignment becomes interesting when Rinnie discovers that the school has become a hunting ground, and she is the prey. The Walpurgis Knights, a mysterious group of supervillains, have dispatched an apprentice to find her. The good news is, he doesn’t know her true identity. The bad news is, she doesn’t know his, either. Rinnie immediately suspects that Mason is the unknown apprentice, and taking him down becomes her second mission, which she vows to complete successfully.
Aided by an oddly shaped, politically imperfect band of outcasts who call themselves the Dweeb League, Rinnie searches the high school for clues that will prove whether Mason is the elusive apprentice. In an unpredictable game of deception, she learns that the Walpurgis Knights, the kidnapper, and Mason are all tied irrevocably to Nicolaitan, the man who murdered her parents. Rinnie takes her Mental Arts skills to their limits in her first battle against the evil Walpurgis Knights.Read Chapter 1
When she was six, her family was murdered and the Psi Fighters put her into hiding. All traces of her existence evaporated. She got a new identity and a new family. Then she went into the most accelerated training program any Psi Fighter had ever been exposed to. Now she goes to your school.
Kathryn is Rinnie’s best friend in the entire universe. They know everything about each other. Rinnie knows Kathryn’s secret shopping hot spots. Kathryn knows Rinnie’s secret identity. Kathryn is the coolest, most popular girl in school, but she doesn't know it. She is completely genuine, totally unaware of her popularity. She’s as unsnobbish as it’s possible to be. On the other hand, she has little patience with lower life forms like Mason Draudimon and Art Rubric.
Bobby is a brain, and Mason admires him for it. But he’s a little geeky, which also makes him a favorite target of Mason and his goons. Oh, and Kathryn adores him, but he's too dense to realize it.
Rinnie's mentor and dear friend, Andy is Rinnie's favorite sparring partner at the secret underground Psi Fighter Academy. He is also the technical wizard behind all Psi Fighter gadgetry. Most of his inventions are useful. He made a mind-powered underground transport, a memory scanner, and the Amplifier, chosen weapon of the Psi Fighter. He also invented an annoying little iPod-like gadget that projects a hologram of him in a Princess Leia wig talking to an R2D2 garbage can.
Mason is totally cute but thoroughly nasty. Rumor has it that he is emotionally scarred by his abusive mother, so he takes his anger out on anyone who gets in his way. Sometimes Rinnie feels sorry for him. Most of the time, she wishes a random house would drop on his head. He has picked on her since forever, and here’s the thing—she could dust the lockers with his face, but then, there’s her secret identity to worry about. So she just takes it. It gets annoying.
Egon is the coolest boy in the school, and a mixed martial arts expert. Nobody, not even Mason or Art, will mess with him. Rinnie has a tremendous crush on him, and she sometimes sees glimmers of him crushing back... but she’s not sure. He has become her unofficial bodyguard against Mason and his morons. Which she totally appreciates.
Art has taken the word “nasty” to a whole new level. His personal mission is to make sure the halls of Rinnie’s school are safe — from him. He charges the students a toll to pass, and anyone able to pay can roam in total safety. For those who have no money, well, Art has come up with a way to make them pay, too. Oh, and one more thing about Art—he is a heavy Psychedone 10 user.
Tammy is the school's beautiful, well-endowed, and totally evil head cheerleader. She is the undisputed leader of the Red Team, a group of nasties who bully relentlessly because they enjoy it. She is also founding member of the Star Ship Angel, a shady business she operates out of a back room in the Shadow Passage.
At the center of the Psi Fighter Academy is a secure conference room that requires Psi Mental Energy to access. Once inside, Psi Fighters can share intelligence about Nicolaitan and the Walpurgis Knights and develop strategies for future missions.Tour the Academy

Psi Another Day is an enjoyable zany read PERFECT for tweens and teens.
It’s great to be able to escape into a world where the hero is clearly the "good guy"(girl). I thoroughly enjoyed the depth given to the characters, and Rinnie’s sarcasm even in the middle of a crisis is a riot.
What’s not to like about a teenage girl out to avenge her parents’ murder and reclaim safety and order for her bullied classmates while using psionic superpowers she hasn’t quite mastered?
Psi Another Day is an absolutely wonderful book -- full of charm, creativity, morality and uniqueness.
Get ready for the joyride of your life and a truly immersive adventure. Rosensteel’s delicate choice of words truly paints a masterpiece on the canvas that is the mind.
Good read. Got me on the first page, kept me to the end. Didn't want to put it down.
