Don't Even Think About It by Sarah Mlynowski

Contemporary teen fiction with romance, secrets, scandals, and ESP from the author of Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have).
We weren't always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn't expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper.
Since we've kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends really think of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what's coming. Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same.

So stop obsessing about your ex. We're always listening.

Don't Even Think About It is a fun and hilarious book that I loved reading. The story goes inside the minds (literally) of high schoolers as they develop the ability to hear what others are thinking.  The story is unique in that it offers typical teenage drama with a lot of humor, a sci-fi twist and even a little inspiration. The story is told in a narrator's voice but there are first person voices as well.  I laughed hysterically at some points--the author did a great job of capturing teenagers. I highly recommend this book for girls ages 14 and up. Thank you to Random House Teens for this unique book!
