Mind Games

Book: Mind Games
Series: Mind Games #1
Author: Kiersten White

Review: When their parents are killed in a car accident, Sofia and Annie go to a school for girls that are "special." Annie is blind but is able to see the future, while Fia has perfect instincts. Told in alternating narratives and time lines, this book was a fun, enjoyable surprise. The school heads are using Fia for nefarious deeds and control her by using her sister as leverage. Fia is extremely damaged but smart. She knows she is surrounded by people that can hear her thoughts and feel her emotions, so she is constantly trying to block them. I loved all of her narratives and her complicated relationship with James, the elusive lead of the school's son. However, being in her head may not be enjoyable for all readers. Annie was not quite as enjoyable for me as Fia because she was so naive. The teachers at the school were written pretty clearly bad and it was surprising it took Annie so long to catch on (or perhaps they should have been written a little more grey). The ending of the book was fantastic. 

Overall-fun read, I really enjoyed it. 

Grade: 5/5
