This week's pick:
Format: Hardcover, 400 pages
A high concept, cinematic read with a surprising twist, MINDERS asks the question: who is really watching who?
Q: If the boy you love commits a crime, would you turn him in?
Sadie Ames is a type-A teenager from the wealthy suburbs. She's been accepted to the prestigious Mind Corps Fellowship program, where she'll spend six weeks as an observer inside the head of Ford, a troubled boy with a passion for the crumbling architecture of the inner city. There's just one problem: Sadie's fallen in love with him.
Q: What if the crime is murder?
Ford Winters is haunted by the murder of his older brother, James. As Sadie falls deeper into his world, dazzled by the shimmering pinpricks of color that form images in his mind, she begins to think she knows him. Then Ford does something unthinkable.
Q: What if you saw it happen from inside his mind?
Back in her own body, Sadie is faced with the ultimate dilemma. With Ford's life in her hands, she must decide what is right and what is wrong. And how well she can really ever know someone, even someone she loves.
I love the idea of this! Mind-reader books are one thing, but this takes it to a whole different level. I wonder what will happen when - if - they meet? Plus, that cover o.O So pretty!
Anyway, what are your thoughts? Do you agree or do you think it's 'just another dystopian'?
