(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Hachette Children's Books and Netgalley.)
A group of teens discover that after a flu jab, they can suddenly hear everybody’s thoughts.
Who has secrets that they need to hide from their friends though? How long will these abilities last? And is this new-found side effect a good thing or a bad thing?

Oh dear, yet another pretty cover, with a not-so-entertaining story behind it.

I felt like I couldn’t really connect with the characters in this book, they came across as very immature and spent most of their time arguing with one another. I didn’t feel like they really approached their problems in the best way, and the constant arguing (even if it was in their heads) got annoying quite quickly.

The storyline in this should have been good, but instead became petty. Every tiny little thing was nit-picked, and the most anybody ever found out by listening to someone else’s thoughts was that they were cheating on their significant other. I did appreciate how awkward it would be to overhear your parent’s thoughts while they were having sex, and some other embarrassing situations, but most of the time the story just dissolved into petty name-calling, and making fun of people.

I think what this story needed was a good old mystery. If there had been a murderer running round, and they could hear his/her thoughts, then that would have much improved the story, and given the characters something to actually think about other than who picks their nose, and who thinks they’re fat. But unfortunately, nobody died.

There was some romance, but not a lot, and it mainly consisted of people thinking about kissing other people.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review for 'Don't Even Think About It' 24 Aug 2014
By Dina J.
Format:Paperback
I want to start of this review with noting that this author had a very fun, interesting and great idea for a book. The line “It’s how a group of I’s became a we” stayed with me long after the first time I read it. I kind of connected with that. I was once in class with 12 other students that were different, but so interesting and lovely in their own way. We heard from teachers how knit together we seemed and knew ourselves that we were in this together. We knew that until the end of the year, we would be a ‘we’. That was an amazing feeling, and this book made me think of that. How it’s wonderful how people can be thrown together, only by coincidence, and just click.

The difference with this story is that it didn’t start out that way. They were just kids, on their own, and hoping to make it out just fine. But suddenly, before they almost know it themselves, they have to deal with this huge thing. Together. You see their lives slowly changing throughout the book and them getting used to living like they have to now. Having said that, like in any situtation, some don’t deal with it as good as others. But those parts were what made me like “Don’t Even Think About It” the most. It’s not the mind reading, or the scandals, or the romances. It’s that these kids were in it together, even if they didn’t want to be. It made the story so much more realistic.

A big negative was the writing. It just didn’t correspond well with the kick ass idea, and was a huge downer. What kept me going for the most part was my curiosity on how in the world this could end without going all “apocalypse and aliens” on us, because it was clear from the beginning that that is not what kind of book this is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Even Think About It 7 Sep 2014
By Jenny, Wondrous Reads TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed Sarah Mlynowski's last book, Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done, so I was looking forward to Don't Even Think About It. It's another fun teen read with a memorable plot, a host of different characters - some likeable and some not - and writing that flows off the page. I enjoyed it and read it all in one sitting - that seems to be the way to read a Mlynowski book!

Narrated by the students themselves, Don't Even Think About It tells the story of class 10B and how they end up hearing people's thoughts. After a routine flu vaccination, they all start to display signs of ESP - extrasensory perception - their eyes change colour and suddenly nothing can be a secret anymore. The Espies find themselves in a position of great power and the only question is, how will they use it?

I love the premise of this book! The telepathy creates so much drama and upset that it's like watching a car crash unfold. Relationships have no secrets, friendships are seen for what they really are and non-Espies are manipulated against their knowledge. It raises a lot of questions about morals and right and wrong, and Mlynowski addresses them all well. I'm still thinking about it now, wondering what would happen if I suddenly had these abilities or knew someone that did. Life would certainly never be the same again.

I had a love/hate relationship with these characters, which I think is the point. Hearing their thoughts really showed their personalities and their true feelings, and not all of them were favourable. I couldn't warm to Queen Bee Mackenzie at all, and, if I had to choose, Cooper would be top of my Espie list. He's the only person who seems to want to do the right thing, and it stands out. I hope we see a lot more of him in the next book.
