An oldie from 2011 that’s still fresh in 2013
When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.
An incredible new twist on mind-readers and mind-control. Kira, a teenage girl who believes she is a “zero”, a freak without mind-reading abilities in a world where telepathy is the norm is about to have her world turned upside down.
Quinn raises interesting questions about ethics, mind control, and the role of big brother government.
The slang in this universe does take some time to get used to but soon you too will be as well versed in the “mesh” language as any native “reader”. The quick moving plot pulls you in with hints of romance, adventure, and danger.
The beginnings of interesting character development and relationships remain open and unresolved, leaving room for follow-up books in the series.
Open Minds is aimed at the young adult audience. As a sci-fi book for teenagers, predictable high school angst and other coming of age struggles are peppered throughout. At the same time, the danger experienced by Kira in this alternate telepathic world will draw in adult readers looking for a quick and easy read.
