    “Sixteen-year-old Maddie Dunn is special, but she needs to figure out how to use her new abilities before somebody else gets hurt. Ganzfield is a secret training facility full of people like her, but it’s not exactly a nurturing place.

     Every social interaction carries the threat of mind-control.

    A stray thought can burn a building to the ground. And people’s nightmares don’t always stay in their own heads. But it’s still better than New Jersey.

     Especially once she meets the man of her dreams…”

    My Thoughts:

    When Kate Kaynak first asked me if I’d be interested in reviewing Minder, I was intrigued with the book premise because it sounded somewhat similar to the movie PUSH. Am I ever happy that I accepted because I LOVED it!! I was totally caught up in the story and couldn’t wait to see what would happen next to Maddie, Trevor, Drew, Rachel, Hannah and the rest of the Ganzfield kids. The romance developing between Maddie & Trevor is sweet and the premise, plotting, pacing and world building were great!

    Packed with interesting concepts, action, danger, romance and the fortitude and determination of a bunch of great teens with special abilities, Minder is a terrific read for both teens and adults. I liked reading how these kids have to learn to accept and deal with their various talents, both the advantages, disadvantages  and difficulties of having special abilities.  I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series, Adversary, to see what happens next! And thankfully, the third book, Legacy, will be out in January, 2010 so it’s not too long of a wait. 🙂
