When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.
Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she's dragged deep into a hidden underworld of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.
An excellent sci-fi, written for young adults, but we regular adults love it too! Loved the character details woven into a complicated story line about possible skills of thought transfer. Can you read or jack?55
Such a good read! I read a book a day and managed to read the whole series!55
Took a bit to get into the book but am thrilled I persisted! Great read, mind opening, characters we can totally love or equally despise! Looking forward to reading the next!55
All of the most critical reviews I looked at before purchasing this book had at least one spoiler. Please be more mindful of future readers who check the reviews before purchasing. Thank you.55
Great story about a girl who just wants to fit in. The only problem with that is she can't read minds. And just when things are looking up, everything goes sideways. I highly recommended!55
You will be pleased with this authors work. You don't find many lesser known authors who can write with such a wonderful flow. Good character development. The story draws you in and you become part of it. Exciting and will keep you up late reading.55
I loved reading Book 1 and look forward to many more books by this author! Thanks for keeping it clean for my teen daughter!55
I really enjoyed this book. Especially the more original story line. Kira discovers she is not a reader but a jacket. She can project her thoughts into another's kind. She's a strong character and at the age of 16, she's more than she appears to be. I was surprised at the death of a character, but felt their death was needed to give Kira that push to realise that there was no going back. But the character who died, he saved Kira. I liked how the author killed someone off (no fairy tales here!) it was refreshing to read. I mean, you have all these books, and rarely the author kills off a main character. You felt the characters needless death more. Anyways, it is a good read. There are some points where the author jumps around and is hard to follow, and some of the words used the author expected the reader to learn new slangs for a society about 100 years in the future.55
I'm going to first say, I ship Raf and Kira and it has never changed. I never liked Simon, which I mean I guess we're not supposed to but still not the point. This book had me on a roller coaster from anger, to denial, to being fine. I couldn't stop reading it! It is captivating from the beginning and I am going to read more! I'm probably going to end up buying the actual books(if it's available). Open Minds has awesome characters and character building. The plot was on point and although there are many Y.A. books about mind reading and all that, I feel like this one is better.45
