From Kiersten White's Blog: "A brutal, exciting gem of a book." --Holly Black, NYT Bestselling Author
Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.
Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways…or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.
In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.
Audience: YA (Clean)
Genre: Speculative Fiction, Fantasy
Length: 237 pgs
Rating: *****+ (I absolutely loved it)
Review: I loved PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White, and a little while back she wrote a blog post an how, while MIND GAMES was very different from anything she'd ever written, it was also still pretty similar--in that it involved a "strong, smart, snarky heroine."
But Fia is very different. She is so beautifully broken that it hurts to read about her--in a good way. You just ache for this girls and then cheer for them. You can do it! You can make stuff better! This book made me really think and really feel and really want to read the next one right now. But I'm told (by Kiersten herself, seriously) that I have to wait until next February. Which is forever and ever away.
