We present preliminary analysis of approximately 10 variable stars observed with Kepler. The sample stars are faint, and have temperatures greater than 8000 K. The stars were observed for up to three quarters (Q14-Q16) in long cadence mode. Frequencies were extracted with Period04, and 1-21 frequencies were detected in each quarter, with an average of 8 frequencies per quarter. Some variability is detected from quarter to quarter, while the dominant frequencies remain unchanged. We fit the frequencies using MESA models between 1.5 and 3 solar masses, and varied the core overshoot. Best fitting properties of each of these stars will be discussed.
