It took me a few days to get around to writing a review for this book. Partially, I think, because I was still “digesting” the story, but partially also because I couldn’t decide whether to give it 4/5 or 4.5/5 stars in my written review. It was a fun story to read, and I read it in only a couple of days (unlike some of the other ARCs that I have, although the ones that have been sitting are usually sitting just because I don’t have time to read them when they’re new).
Part of me really wants a sequel for this book, because I want to find out what happens to the teens in the story, to their abilities, and also, the relationships. I have to admit that I enjoyed the relationships part of the book more than I thought that I would. It took me a little while to get the teens straight since Don’t Even Think About It talks about a large group of teens (pretty much an entire homeroom), but overall it was pretty easy to keep each couple straight, after I was able to develop a sense for their differences.
The premise of the story is very “out there” – that a batch of flu vaccines would cause ESP – but it was a fun and entertaining read, one that I highly recommend if you’re looking for a light read with humor and relatable characters. Even though the premise was unlikely, I found myself really involved in the story, to the point that if I read other books I kept wondering if the characters in these other books had ESP or if they’d like to have ESP. So yes, it was a very interesting novel and one that definitely left an imprint on my heart.
