Description

Contemporary teen fiction with romance, secrets, scandals, and ESP from the author of Bras & Broomsticks! 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.

Review quote

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, January 6, 2014: "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." RT Book Reviews, March 2014: "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." Booklist, January 1, 2014: "Readers will hope for a sequel with amped-up Espie secrets and scandals. Hand to fans of Cecily von Ziegesar s all-seeing" Gossip Girl "and Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian s "Burn for Burn" revenge books. Now, flu shot, anyone?" Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2014: "The multiple characters are remarkably distinctive, and the plot moves along briskly, combining family drama, complicated romance and friendship turmoil into a compelling view of teen dynamics." School Library Journal, April 2014: "Mlynowski writes teen protagonists with heart and depth authentically illustrating the trials and tribulations of the high school experience, rather than making a mockery out of adolescent egocentrism. This is a fun read, recommended for fans of contemporary fiction."show more

Our customer reviews

Did I enjoy this book: I did. It was a bit slow, but it was cute. The narration was a bit odd to me. It seemed like it was told in the third person, but also in a collective first person. I know, it’s confusing. Parts were told in the “we,” not just “she.” Read the blurb below to see what I mean. There were 22 kids in the class that developed ESP. 22 kids made up that “we.” There were a few “main” main characters, but the “we” was all of them. It took quite a while to get used to. Once I got into the groove, the book moved and it was cute. But nothing spectacular. I was hoping for something a bit more. It had teenage angst and drama. I was disappointed that they used their powers for cheating and gossip. I knew that was going to happen. I mean, what teenager wouldn’t sit next to the smartest kid in the class during a test! But I was hoping that it wouldn’t have. I could understand the gossip. There was really no way to avoid that. But the cheating doesn’t send a great message. Maybe I’m getting too old. It was also an eye opener for some of the kids. They found out that they each had issues that they were dealing with, that their parents were dealing with issues, that everyone had something going on besides what was happening on the outside. Would I recommend it: Sure. It was a cute YA read. Will I read it again: I will not. (I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)show more
