Contemporary teen fiction with romance, secrets, scandals, and ESP from the author of Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have).
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.
Don’t Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski was incredible. There isn’t much more to say. The character’s jumped off the page. The fact that this book followed a multitude of characters, it was very easy to understand. I’m a can’t-get-it-in-the-first-ten-pages-I’m-done kinda girl. This was not one of those books.
Such a stellar story. I cannot say enough about this book. I will admit I was hesitant to begin this book. I didn’t think it could add up to Sarah Mlynowski’s Magic In Manhattan Series, but this book was in a different field, an entirely different league (you’re welcome, Cooper) than that series. It was light, it was fun, it took me THREE HOURS. SUCH A GOOD BOOK!! This is one of those books I will always remember, when I’m in the bathtub planning a blog post, playing on my i-Phone, using GermX excessively, even when I’m old and grey. (Let’s hope I make it, my dad says I’m lucky to still be here. My mouth gets me into some tight spots.) This is one of those memorable books. An ingenious work of YA Literature. I can’t image my shelves without it!
