Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I used to think that if I could have a superpower, it would be really cool to know what other people were thinking. This book reminded me why I changed my mind on that one. After getting the flu shot, an entire homeroom gets the ability to know what everyone is thinking. So they learn everyone's secrets. Of course drama occurs, feelings get hurt, people get manipulated, etc. (when doesn't that stuff happen in high school?) I had some issue with the overuse of "we" and not really knowing who they were referring to other than the general group. It got annoying after a while especially when I just couldn't figure out who was left that could be narrating. The ending was a surprise and I felt it didn't really flow with the theme of the last couple of chapters but then again teenagers. It was a light read and I appreciated that it didn't paint teenagers as drug addled sex crazed stupid lunatics obsessed with vampires and werewolves. For that it can get an extra star. ( )

What would it be like if you could read everyone's mind? Good? Bad? Maybe a little of both. If others could read your's, it would be hard to keep a secret, wouldn't it?

This was better than I thought it would be. Kind of quirky, the story is told in a hive mind sort of way--all the ones who can read minds are narrating. It's not my favorite, but it's not the worst thing I've read either. If you like high school drama--this could be your go-to book. ( )

10B is honestly just like any other homeroom in any other American high school. There's nothing that sets them apart from the other classes; they just see each other once a day. Some classes they have together but for the most part, being in homeroom 10B is the only thing they have in common.

Well, that's at least until the day for the flu shots arrive. Some of them are nervous, some of them just want to get it over with. But what all of them do have in common from that day on is the fact that the flu shots change them. It only takes a couple of hours before they start realising that it's no common side effects they've all gotten; like a sore arm or feeling a little bit ill. No, they can suddenly hear other people's thoughts.

Together they are forced to cope with their new talents whilst making sure nobody finds out what makes 10B different from all other American high school homerooms. This is the story of how they became a 'we'.

I was, for some reason, expecting a dystopia so the storyline took me a bit by surprise. But honestly, it was in a positive and refreshing way. It wasn't as action-packed as I thought it would be as it focused more on how the characters handled their new talent – and the consequences of both their actions, and their thoughts.

Although, I do feel a bit confused as to what the author wanted to make a point of, because it feels like there's a moral of the story but I'm not entirely sure what it is. Because it feels like it shows how important it can be to be a part of something bigger than yourself but also how some things should remain private. A third moral of the story, though, is that everyone has odd thoughts. I feel like that is something very important for tweens and young teenagers to know. Everyone's odd; and people definitely have weird thoughts sometimes. ( )

A fun, quick, compelling read by Sarah Mlynowski, author of Bras & Broomsticks. This book is about a homeroom class of high schoolers who end up developing telepathic powers from a bad batch of the flu shot. What happens when your boyfriend or the guy you have a crush on can read your mind? What if you could hear what your parents and teachers are really thinking? Well, what happens in this book is that tons of secrets and lies are exposed, and a heck of a lot of drama ensues.

I really enjoy Mylonowski’s friendly, clear writing style and her characters are complex and relatable. The story is told from the perspective of a hive-mind of twenty-two telepathic teens, but the main thrust of the storyline follows only a handful of them. While some may find this confusing, I found it clever and funny in a snarky Gossip Girl kind of way.

My one big issue with this book was with the “perv” of the class BJ, who really creeped me out more than I think he was meant to. He was constantly objectifying the girls in his class and they often responded positively to this. And while this did feel very realistic, I still found it rather troubling. I also felt that this book could’ve included more (obviously) multicultural and gay characters. But on the whole, this book was still incredibly enjoyable--a guilty-pleasure kind of read, perfect for spring break, summer vacation, or, who am I kidding, any time you want to read a juicy gossip/catty argument/make-out scene kind of book.

The best term for this book is "brain floss." It's sort of like [b:Gossip Girl|22188|Gossip Girl (Gossip Girl, #1)|Cecily von Ziegesar|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1398814332s/22188.jpg|3061184] meets [b:Village Of The Damned|6259989|Village Of The Damned|John Wyndham|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1234722600s/6259989.jpg|812592], but very fluffy. One homeroom in a Manhattan high school gets a batch of dodgy flu shots. How dodgy? They give the kids telepathic powers. And at first, it's fun! They (the book is told in first person plural perspective) use their powers to find out their school nurse needs condoms, or that one girl has a crush on her best guy friend. Then, it gets bad. One of the students cheated on her boyfriend and, soon, the entire class, apart from him, finds out. One student hears her parents thinking about having sex. It gets messy. And then, the government gets involved. This book is a quick, fun read. It is the first of a series, so I was a bit surprised by the ending. But, knowing it's a series, the ending makes a bit more sense. I will probably read the next book. It's not great, but it is enjoyable. ( )
