Description: With New Agey parents and a Pakistani heritage, it might have been difficult for Sunny Pryce-Shah to fit in. Thankfully, she had her older, popular cousin Shiri to talk to—until now. Shiri’s shocking suicide brings heartwrenching pain and grief, and also seems to have triggered a new and disturbing ability in Sunny: hearing people’s thoughts.
It’s awful, especially when Sunny learns what her so-called friends really think of her. Feeling more comfortable with the Emo crowd, she tells them about her strange talent and uses it to help cute, troubled Cody. But when his true motives are revealed, she isn’t sure whom to trust anymore. Sunny hopes to find answers in Shiri’s journal. Was her cousin also cursed with this “gift”? Will Sunny end up like Shiri?
Review: Going into this novel I was expecting something other than what it actually was. Like many other booklovers, I'm not exactly fond of contemporary books. Of course I give them a shot if they look interesting, but they generally aren't of interest to me. This is one of the books that I gave a chance. And to be honest, I wasn't very thrilled with it. It wasn't that it was a bad book or anything, it just wasn't my cup of tea. The biggest thing that annoyed me with this book is that it mainly consisted of different characters whining and moping around about their problems. There wasn't too much action during the book so it was mostly just the main character complaining about how hard her life is. With this in mind, the book seemed really dragged out and by the time I was about 150 pages in I just wanted it to end already. The idea of the book actually quite intriguing, but it was just hard to go along with the book and it took me forever to read because I wasn't really interesting. I did finish the book though, and I really enjoyed the ending (as in like the last two pages); I thought it was super cute. There were a few things left without resolution, but it was still pretty decent. If you are into contemporary books then I think you may like it, but I personally didn't like it too much.
