Don’t Even Think About It
Author: Sarah Mlynowski
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: March, 2014
Synopsis from Edelweiss; link to Goodreads:
What happens when a group of Tribeca high school kids go in for flu shots . . . and end up being able to read each others’ minds?
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.
Why I’m Excited:
I’ve loved Sarah Mylnowski’s books since she wrote starting writing chick-lit for the now-debunked publisher Red Dress Ink 10 years ago. This synopsis sounds so cute and interesting. While I’d like to be able to read minds sometimes, I can see where it would cause major, major problems. It’s a power I’d want only if I could turn it off when I wanted. To constantly hear other people’s thoughts would definitely become a burden. I kind of hate this cover, but this doesn’t published for several months, so hopefully it will get a revamp.
