Shaken (Mind Reader) by Susan Hatler

Susan Hatler:
 High school junior, Kylie Bates, can suddenly read minds. When she touches people’s hands, she’s able to see their deepest thoughts. As if that’s not freaky enough, her dad sends her to help hottie detective, Sam Williams, track down a missing girl. Way too much pressure, especially for a girl who can’t watch Scream without getting nightmares. Then, finding the missing girl leads to much more than Kylie’s prepared for. Like discovering that her dad has been lying to her. That she has a family she never knew about. That the girls have powers similar to hers. Oh yeah, and that someone is out to get her. When the detective’s teenage wanna-be-cop cousin, Trip Williams, approaches Kylie at school insisting she help him solve the case, she discovers Trip might be the only one she can trust, and the only one to help her unravel the secrets behind her mysterious gift.

 Tifferz Take-
 I am a big fan of Susan Hatler's and was so excited to read Shaken. If you enjoy a YA Romance jam packed with adventure and the unknown. I would recommend this fantastic read. I personally think it would be so cool to be able to read others minds without the side effects that Kylie experences! This story was well paced and I found Trip and Kylie to be very fun. Trip is a good guy. He wants to protect Kylie. I think that Drew's gift is pretty neat. One of my favorite parts is when Kylie reads Trip's mind. I was surprised quite a few times with the unexpected. I did think the end was a little rushed and would have liked Kylie and her dad to have a chat with questions answered. But we do get all our answers. I am hoping that Ms. Hatler will be making this a series! I think maybe we could have Drew's story and be able to catch up with Trip and Kylie! Just an idea. A fantastic story that is clean and gets your heart pumping! Great job Ms. Halter. I can't wait to get my hands on your next book.
