Review - Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski

Synopsis: 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.

Review: This is your typical highschool drama scene more or less with everyday kids. The only thing is one class has taken a flu vaccine and has developed telepathy capabilities.

It was entertaining to read as each student came into their mind reading power how they reacted and then when they realized they weren't the only ones and tried to not think about things they didn't want the others to know which made them actually think of them more. A few kids found out way more than they bargained for.

I wasn't really satisfied with the ending. It felt a bit rushed to me and left me wondering if there will be another book after this one.
