Synopsis:

She was created for a purpose so revolutionary, someone was willing to kill for it.

Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates—she’s the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people’s thoughts.

But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality—her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others.

After Lexi’s father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can’t decide whether to fall into Jack’s arms or run and hide.

As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.

Mindspeak (Mindspeak, #1)My Review
Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri

Is it ethical to tamper with genetics, to clone or to use the children of these procedures as part of a secret program? Can Lexi trust the new student, Jack to understand what she is dealing with as a mind speaker? Is there more to Jack than meets the eye? When Jack tells Lexi she is capable of more than just speaking to other minds and Lexi’s scientist father goes missing, the chaos of her world explodes in a flurry of action, adventure and danger in this fresh new YA fantasy, Mindspeak by debut author Heather Sunseri. Can these special children live as “normal” teens?

With quirky characters, serious characters and heroic characters, all with great dialogue, you will chuckle, gasp, grit your teeth and sigh heavily as the romance becomes a sweet message of hope for the future. And don’t forget the frustration as Jack withholds information from Lexi, promising to tell her later. Ugh! I kept asking Jack, ‘What if later never comes?’ Yep, I was lost completely in this tale.

If this is representative of the distinctive style of Heather Sunseri, I see a fabulous future for this author!
