A high school girl can read minds—and doesn't like what she hears—in this novel that "will have you laughing out loud" (Barry Lyga, author of The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl). Nothing is beyond Kristi Carmichael's disdain—her hippie high school, her friend Jacob, her workaholic mom. Yet for all her attitude, Kristi has a vulnerable side. She can hear the thoughts of her fellow students—a power that's not as cool as it sounds, since she can hear them calling her fat and gross. She's hot for Gusty Peterson, one of the most popular guys in school, but of course, she's sure he thinks she's disgusting. And she's still mad at her father, who walked out on her two years ago. Soon, a school project brings her together with Gusty, her father comes home and drops a bombshell, and a friend comes out of the closet—and suddenly she is left doubting that she can read people at all.
