Published by: Delacorte Press (US) / Orchard (UK)
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.
Praise for Sarah Mlynowski;
“A tour-de-force comic narration that will leave you gasping in awe—if you ever catch your breath from laughing.”—E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars
“Mlynowski continues to make comedy look easy in this smart and frequently hilarious novel, which features a collective first-person narrative that fits the premise like a glove… Filled with heartbreak, hilarity, and some brutal truths, Mlynowski’s novel will leave readers thinking about the gaps between our private and public selves and the lies we tell others and ourselves.” –Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
“Mlynowski hits all the right notes. There’s enough levity to keep readers laughing, but this is far from fluff–the real-life commotions are engaging, and the characters are fully developed. The story is funny, sweet and true to life, as readers have come to expect from Mlynowski. Her teens are emotional without being drama queens, amusing but not twee. A perfect read.”–RT Book Reviews

Don’t Even Think About It is a novel about a group of high school sophomores who go in for a flu shot and come out with telepathic powers. So, if I had the same reaction, what would I do with them?
I wouldn’t use them for total evil purposes, but I would definitely get some sweet, harmless revenge on a few people with my new-found powers. I would love to know what people maybe thought about me, if someone was lying or telling the truth (with telepathic powers, it would be so easy to catch them out!). There is pretty much an endless list of things you could do with telepathic powers; learn other peoples secrets, know what people really think, know what’s going to unravel before it does…I would definitely have a lot of fun, but then like in Don’t Even Think About It, it could have the power to crack someone too. All those different things we could hear could lead to a thought-overload! So I would use them with caution – because once you hear something, you can’t un-hear it!
Now for even more fun!
