When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep. Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she's dragged deep into a hidden underworld of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.

It was ok.

I enjoy sci-fi so the concept of a mindreading society was intriguing.

One thing that I really didn't like about this book was Kira's relationship with Simon. Like why? Just... why? From the beginning, you can tell he's a bad dude and his actions were just creepy to me.
With the other love interest, Raf, I don't see the chemistry. She liked him, he liked her, and I hated Simon, but there was nothing really there that made me want to see them get together in the end. ( )

I thought it was engaging with a fascinating concept of a future dystopia where people have mind-reading abilities. I'm moving on the the second book of the trilogy. ( )

This book unfolded predictably, but not in a bad way. I mean it was predictable that Kira, who was a Zero (someone who can't read minds, who is outcast from the way society functions, and who will never be able to hold a trusted job) jumps at the chance to change things. Of course when she found out she had an ability to hijack people's minds and make them think she was like them she would do that. Of course she'd want to fit in. And of course she'd be tempted to see just how much she could do with her ability.

This is all written on a backdrop of society undergoing similar things. Decades ago the first mindreaders were imprisoned and studied. Now the mindjackers are. And of course the mindjackers want to do anything they can to avoid that.

Kira matured during this book. She had to; she saw and experienced some terrible things. I like where this book left her and I'm interested enough to read more.

A very interesting concept for a futuristic society. It did drag a bit here and there, but nothing that the reader couldn't power through easily. The suspense was perfect, at times leaving me almost not wanting to continue for fear of what may befall our heroine, Kira Moore. Author Quinn never disappointed in those moments, the outcomes always as dramatic as the lead-in alluded. I would definitely recommend this book, and hope for an opportunity to read the sequel in the near future. ( )

When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep

I am on the fence about this one. On one hand, I was really excited for a book about telepathy and a society of telepaths…But I was disappointed by some of the aspects of this book. A lot of the scenes seemed clique.

Open Minds is set in a future world where a chemical made people start gaining telepathic abilities. Soon it was the norm and people without the ability was not. However, those without were called zeros and were considered the lowest of the low. Which didn’t make sense because in a belief history of the world it was stated that in the beginning those with the ability were sent to concentration camps. You would think that they would recognize the injustice of doing that and would be more sympathetic to those different from them. Quinn does deserve praise for taking human evolution a step further and making it our own fault. Or more to fact the government’s fault.

“My mom still thought I was a zero, Rafe thought I was a changeling, and Simon thought I was jacking them both. It was official: I was lying to everyone I knew.”

The story jumped scenes too quickly for me. There were times where I was lost because the scene jumped or the story transition faster than expected. The characters didn’t seem very dimensional. The was a lot of cliché used to describe someone. But the idea Mindjacking was unique if a bit rape-y. The jackers have the ability to take over someone’s mind and make them do what they wanted. Basically, forcing them against their will.

“”I wasn’t ready to replay that bit of disaster—the moment when I decided to Simon Zagan’s girlfriend…”

Now, Let’s talk about the dreaded love triangle that happens in almost every young adult. This one lose points because the love triangle didn’t make sense. Between the main character Kira, her childhood friend Rafe, and bad boy Simon. Kira has never interacted with Simon before coming into rare and super ability of jacking. All the sudden she has sort of feelings for him and they are a couple. Even though a chapter or so before she had mentioned loving Rafe. Simon irritated me because he was moral less kid who liked to humiliate others to make him feel better.

Now in this world, there is no such thing as privacy. Everything is out in the open due to a constant access to other’s minds. I feel like there should have been some like of etiquette or ethically use of this ability. Instead it was free for all. Not to mention, that every telepath used the ability to do mundane things like turn the stove off or open doors which is more telekinesis then telepathy.

Overall, this book was not for me. There were too many things that put me off. Although new way of using telepathy in books. It is fast paced and action packed. But it fell flat in my eyes from lack of world building and character development. 2 out of 5. Hopefully, I can find a telepathy book that I like. ( )
