Be careful what you are thinking, Kristi Carmichael can read minds... or can't she? Nothing is beyond Kristi Carmiachael's disdain-her hippy high shcool, her friend Jacob, her workaholic mum. Yet for all her attitude and her mind-reading abilities, Kristi has a vulnerable side. She can hear the thoughts of her fellow students, calling her fat and gross. She's hot for Gusty Peterson, one of the most popular guys in school but of course, she's sure he thinks she is disgusting. And she's still mad at her father who walked out on them two years ago. Soon, a school project brings her together with Gusty, her father comes home and drops a bombshell, and a friend comes out of the closet, and suddenly, she is left doubting that she can read people at all. Bittingly funny, but ultimately poignant and positive, this YA novel is completely on the mark.
