[Book Review] Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski

Don't Even Think About ItDon't Even Think About It
Contemporary teen fiction with romance, secrets, scandals, and ESP from the author of Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have).

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.

Don't Even Think About It is a fun story about twenty two sophomores that got interesting side effects from getting a flu shot. Every single one of them started hearing other people's thoughts and as well as communicate with everyone else who had it through thoughts. But every single secret that people had around them will have to come out and it's up to them how they deal with it. The only thing that can help them is getting everything out there and putting trust into each other.

This was a very fast but pretty enjoyable read. It's been awhile since I read any of the high school books but this is just as high school as it gets lol Author really showed all the teenager's problems with the gossip, boyfriend-girlfriend problems, and even teachers. This wasn't anything special for me but I guess it was good read to pass time.
