Drea's Review:
I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

A homeroom of high school sophomores experiences a serious side effect after getting a flu shot—they can all read minds. While they struggle with how to handle their newfound power some try to hide their secrets while others flourish knowing what people really think, instead of worrying about it.

There’s a pretty big cast of characters in this book. The standouts were the controlling not-quite-valedictorian “Pi”, shy-to-the-point-of-being-sick Olivia, happy-go-lucky Cooper, seemingly perfect Mackenzie, and Tess—the loyal bestie who has a serious unrequited crush. I couldn’t stand Pi and wished karma had seriously smacked her at some point in the story. Mackenzie’s cheating on Cooper unfolded painfully slowly but was worth the wait. And Olivia’s growth was awesome. Overall I enjoyed the ending because of Olivia and Tess—they were my favorites—and their resolutions are extremely satisfying. The point of view…kind of a “hive mind”…takes a little getting used to but ended up being a hoot by the end.

Grab this if you ever wondered what it would be like to read minds…while a bunch of other people could read your mind back.
