This is the story of how we became freaks. It's how a group of I's became a we. When Class 10B got their flu shots, they expected some side effects. Maybe a sore arm. Maybe a headache. They definitely didn't expect to get telepathy. But suddenly they could hear what everyone was thinking. Their friends. Their teachers. Their parents. Now they all know that Tess has a crush on her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper. Some of them will thrive. Some of them will break. None of them will ever be the same. A smart and funny story about friendship, first love and surviving high school from the bestselling author of Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done.
Imagine if EVERYONE could hear your thoughts: your best friend, your worst enemy, your secret crush...

Sarah Mlynowski started writing books when she was three years old. Kind of. She would tell them and her mom would transcribe them. They were all about Princesses named Sarah. After learning to use her own pencil, she continued scribbling stories throughout elementary and high school, and studied English literature in college. When she was twenty-four she published her first chick lit novel, Milkrun. Since then she has written six novels for teens, four additional novels for adults, co-written a guide to writing chick lit (See Jane Write), co-edited two bestselling charity collections, and contributed to various anthologies. Originally from Montreal, Sarah now lives in Manhattan.
