Summary: (from Goodreads/
After shedding 30 pounds of baby fat, Sophie Sinora has grown into a pretty, but insecure, teen in bloom. To make her life more complicated, Sophie can sometimes read minds.

Sophie's BFFs, AJ and Krysta, are also 'gifted' with paranormal abilities. Keeping their gifts secret proves difficult, as their powers are strengthening, making them feel more and more like freaks.

When Sophie falls for Jacob, she hopes he'll ask her out to the Freshman Formal. But when she's forced to cheat and lie for him, she wonders how far she'll have to go to make him like her. Add to her growing list of problems - her teacher's suicidal thoughts, a locker bully who wants to kick her butt, the hot school flirt who won't stop teasing her, her pregnant sister who boots Sophie out of her room, and the growing tension between Sophie and her best friends.

Sophie's got issues. Hopefully, she can fix them in time to save her teacher's life and her social life.

My Opinion:
I just finished this one. And decided to give it 4,5 out of 6 stars.

The reason is. It`s a great book. Easy and well written :)
Really fast read for me :)
YA book suitable for the age of 11-16 years.
Since you follow a young girl in school with her crushes, friend issues and family drama.
And next to that she got her gift who butts ind and ruin it a bit.
She can hear peoples thoughts and her gift is getting better.
But is it a good thing :/
I really enjoyed this book and will definitly check out the sequel.
This is a short fast read. With no big drama, action thing.
But real life issues :) As we all know them. And a great conclusion to the story.
About young love :)
