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 world of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.

Its like a reversal of the X-Men. Sort of. But instead of multiple powers, everybody has the same. Mind Reading. Its a good look at prejudice against a minority. There was decent chemistry between Rad and Kira, but I felt it could have been developed more. The most interesting and memorizing aspect was toward the later half of the book.... but I can't spoil it for you! I felt like the momentum gained pace and was up to speed toward the later half so I am excited to see what book two holds.  If you like supernatural abilities, you'll like this book!
