Book Description

This is the story of how we became freaks. It's how a group of I's became a we.

When Class 10B got their flu shots, they expected some side effects. Maybe a sore arm. Maybe a headache. They definitely didn't expect to get telepathy. But suddenly they could hear what everyone was thinking. Their friends. Their teachers. Their parents. Now they all know that Tess has a crush on her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper. Some of them will thrive. Some of them will break. None of them will ever be the same.

A smart and funny story about friendship, first love and surviving high school from the bestselling author of Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Cheerful, Good-Natured Hoot 28 Mar. 2015
I don't really like super mean, super snarky teen angst books, and I'm not in love with the big money Manhattan private school smarm fests. Being unfamiliar with this author I didn't know if she was inclined that way, or if she aimed her books more for school daze humor, or if she followed the middle path along the lines of "Gossip Girls", ( who go right up to the edge but then display redeeming qualities).

I'm happy to report that, at least for me, this book just hit the sweet spot. We're in a Manhattan public school, (so there's not too much designer name dropping and poor-little-rich girl anguish). We have a good mix of male and female characters. Our narrator is in the first person plural, ("we"), which means we aren't saddled with a single quirky point of view and we get an expansive and balanced view of the action. The individuals who make up our crowd are fairly diverse and reasonably interesting, and each is allowed some time on the stage to grow, develop, attract us or leave us cold.

This is really in the nature of a fairy tale, but it is a great testament to the author's commitment to the premise that it doesn't feel like a fairy tale or a fantasy. The author really sells the Espies' telepathic powers, and once you buy that, then everything else falls into place. All of the conventional elements of teen dramas - boyfriends, crushes, girlfriends, gender conflict, fear of failure, fear of success, envy, body issues - are refracted through a weird mental hall of mirrors as someone thinks something, gets multiple responses, responds to those responses, and so on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review for 'Don't Even Think About It' 24 Aug. 2014
By Dina J.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars So MUCH FUN 2 May 2014
Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski is SUCH a fun book to read! I'd read Sarah Mlynowski's previous book, Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done, and thought it was really cute so I was very much looking forward to more stories by the same author. I was definitely not disappointed with Don't Even Think About It.

This book centres around a core group of high school students in the same homeroom who have all received a flu jab. Flu jab? Sure, you'd expect some minor side effects but these 20 or so students are in for a much bigger surprise when one of the side effects turns out to be telepathy.

Honestly, I hope that I'm not going to be really tedious in this review but this book is so much fun. I love the premise. It's about a bunch of teenagers who* can read minds.* I think what's great about this book, besides how awkward and hilarious some of the situations that these characters get themselves into, is that the telepathic powers that they all get only seem to amplify the drama and secrets and emotion that most teenagers go through. I think everyone at some point in time would really want to know what other people are thinking, especially if it concerns you. And while a lot of fun is had and I really loved to see how one particular character grows in confidence there are also other situations in which telepathy might not be such a good thing (like when you can hear your parents having sex!).

There is plenty of drama and secrecy going on here. There's also rifts in friendships and romantic relationships.
