We weren’t always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn’t expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper.

Since we’ve kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends really think of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what’s coming. Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same.

So stop obsessing about your ex. We’re always listening.

Enjoyable with plenty of juicy secrets.

Thoughts on Don’t Even Think About It

This was a fun book. I got a kick out of the different ways the various characters either embraced their new found powers or fell apart as the reality of what they were going through ground them down. It can’t be easy when your every thought it front and center for everybody to read and secrets don’t stay secrets for long.

That said, there were a few of them who weren’t fazed by it. Those that already spoke every thought that crossed their mind and didn’t hold back didn’t have many issues. And then there were those who said one thing while thinking another. Probably my favorite of the group, though, was the one who was hit the hardest. Poor Cooper. Finding out all the lies people have been telling him hurt him in a big way.

Enjoyable and sometimes silly (because ridiculous thought happen!), this was a nice, light read. Nothing too heavy (except for what poor Cooper had to go through. Someone give that boy a cookie. I think he needs it!), it was just fun.

  1. This one seems like it would be a fun summery read! Maybe by the pool or in the backyard. I’m getting so excited about this time of year and planning all my summer books! May just have to add this one to the pile!

  2. Yes, poooor Cooper. I definitely wanted to give him a hug. I also really liked Olivia, except how she “got over her shyness” because I don’t think the author quite understands why people are shy. Because it’s not just about worrying about what others think. It’s about not wanting the attention.

    But this was fun. Glad you enjoyed it.
