Fia and Annie are as close as two sisters can be. They look out for each other. Protect each other. And most importantly, they keep each other’s secrets, even the most dangerous ones: Annie is blind, but can see visions of the future; Fia was born with flawless intuition—her first impulse is always exactly right.
When the sisters are offered a place at an elite boarding school, Fia realizes that something is wrong . . . but she doesn’t grasp just how wrong. The Keane Institute is no ordinary school, and Fia is soon used for everything from picking stocks to planting bombs. If she tries to refuse, they threaten her with Annie’s life.
Now Fia’s falling in love with a boy who has dark secrets of his own. And with his help, she’s ready to fight back. They stole her past. They control her present. But she won’t let them take her future.
Why Do I Want to Read It?
I learned about White through her twitter feed -she always manages to make me laugh (although it’s not that difficult, I’ve been known to squirt milk out of my nose when someone tells a knock knock joke) and knew I wanted to find a novel of hers to read.
I came across Mind Games in a used bookstore and decided to buy it due to the fact that the main characters are sisters. I love my sister (with a capital “L” but that wouldn’t be grammatically correct ;P) and I am always drawn to books based around siblings’ relationships.
Since I found this gem, White has released another novel, And I Darken, which also sounds like a good night spent curled up 😉 but I don’t want to buy another one of her books without reading this one first.
