Open Minds Review by Kelsey G.

Open Minds
By: Susan Kaye Quinn

About the book:

When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.

Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she's dragged deep into a hidden underworld of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.

Review by Kelsey G.

Open Minds is everything an excellent young adult novel should be: fast paced, thrilling, romantic and unpredictable. This plot has so many twists I considered making a a good way. As soon as you think you've got a person (or group of people) figured out, everything turns on its head and you're just not sure who to trust. The conspiracy theorist in me was fascinated. Of course, there was a love-triangle, angst-y enough to satisfy even the most dramatic of young adults, and all in all this book delivered on every possible level. The best part? It's part of a series! I can't wait for the next installment of the Mindjacker books and would recommend this first one to anybody who loves a darn good read!
