Don't Even Think About ItGoodreads Summary
Publication: March 11, 2014
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.

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.

My Review
Have you ever wished that you could read people's thoughts? Ever thought of what it would be like to be telepathic? Read this book, and I'm not so sure you would want to have telepathy for very long! During certain circumstances? Yes! All the time? Noooo, it would drive me nuts, and I really wouldn't want to know what most of the people at school are thinking!

It was kind of like watching a train. It starts moving, then it goes faster, and it's almost impossible to stop. Well, turned out that, cool as it sounds, telepathy was kind of like that. Definitely not all sunshine and roses. Everyone found out each others secrets, thoughts were heard of things that hopefully no one would ever say out loud, and lives were changed. Some things were funny. Some were annoying. Some were just downright mean and not right. It was kind of crazy.

It was nice how, through it all, they were a united front. Meetings were held to make decisions, and they had each others back - well sort of. I felt really bad for Cooper. His whole world was turned upside down, from his family to his friends to his girlfriend. He never got a break!

Overall, this book was okay. I liked it, but I didn't love it.

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
