Displaying Detai.jpgDon't Even Think About It
Sarah Mylnowski
YA Contemporary/ Fantasy

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.

And just LOOK at these blurbs:

“A tour-de-force comic narration that will leave you gasping in awe—if you ever catch your breath from laughing.”—E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars"

Mlynowski continues to make comedy look easy in this smart and frequently hilarious novel, which features a collective first-person narrative that fits the premise like a glove... Filled with heartbreak, hilarity, and some brutal truths, Mlynowski’s novel will leave readers thinking about the gaps between our private and public selves and the lies we tell others and ourselves." --Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

"Mlynowski hits all the right notes. There's enough levity to keep readers laughing, but this is far from fluff--the real-life commotions are engaging, and the characters are fully developed. The story is funny, sweet and true to life, as readers have come to expect from Mlynowski. Her teens are emotional without being drama queens, amusing but not twee. A perfect read."--RT Book Reviews

Gosh, what would I do with the power to read minds.. the better question is, what WOULDN'T I do with the power to read minds. I think I would use it mostly on my friends - the girls mainly. Guys are much easier to read and most of the time you don't need to read them because let's face it, they pretty much make what they think obvious. 

So first use would be- ditch the girl friends who don't really care/are trying to hurt me in any other way. 

Second would be- find out what guys notice about me and intensify or rectify those things.

Third- find out what my dance teachers REALLY think. They make specific comments, but it's hard to know what they think overall.

Fourth- get on my principal's good side- you'll never believe the benefits of that in a boarding school.

Sarah is the author of the Magic in Manhattan and Whatever After series, as well as Gimme a CallTen Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)Milkrun, and more.
Her books have been translated into twenty-nine languages and optioned to Hollywood. Sarah was born in Montreal but now lives and writes in New York City.

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for....

  1. I would sit in during political meetings and hear ulterior motives! And also ask authors how their book series is going to end, and then when they say ''not telling you!'' they'll be thinking about it :P Nah, just kidding :)
