Zara is really close to her brother, Axel. Not just the usual brother-sister close, but so close that she can actually see his thoughts. It’s a little weird, even for twins. Then, after she has a horrible accident, Zara can see what everyone is thinking. Her mother. Her best friends. Even total strangers. At first it’s really pretty cool. Who doesn’t want to know what everyone's thinking about them? But Zara can’t turn off her strange new power, so hanging out with friends now means drowning in a sea of their thoughts, from the excruciatingly trivial to the things she’d really, really rather not know about.
Now Zara’s trapped between wanting to know her loved ones’ most intimate secrets and wanting to block it all out . . . Where does she draw the line? Zara may be blessed with supernatural powers, but her dilemma — where to set boundaries — is one that rings true with all young readers.
