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.

Captivating from the beginning!
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.
Watch Your Brain!
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?
Such a good read! I read a book a day and managed to read the whole series!
