Review: Don't Even Think About It

Don't Even Think About It

Publication Date: May 1st 2014    

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.


I would be the first person to complain about the way it was written. I have mixed feelings about first person and second person, and always comes down to each and every book whether I like it or not and if it works for me. The way Don't Even Think About It was completely new to me. It's kind of third person mixed with first, completing a collective "we". I thought I would hate it, but I didn't. I did get a confused a little in the beginning for the first few chapters until I got into it and then I got hooked and it just really flowed well.  I don't think it will work for everyone, but it worked for me.
