Don't Event Think About It

Don’t Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski                   328 pages

This is the story of a group of teens, all from the same homeroom, who go for their flu shots one day and come back the next with telepathic powers.  They can hear what everyone else is thinking.  They know everyone’s secrets, including secrets about who has cheated on whom, whose parents are getting divorced, whose have a healthy sex life, and the fact that the school nurse used to be a stripper.  Some of them love this power and some mostly hate it, but they become a united front in keeping it a secret, at least in the beginning.  This was a really good story but I kind of felt like the characters acted a little younger than they were supposed to be.  I think that most teens would probably still like the story though.  Although the story was about the telepathic powers, it focused more on the points-of-view of the female characters and more on their relationships so girls might like the story more than boys.
