Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up—Predicting your boyfriend's every wish is easy, especially when you are in his head. Molly knows everything that Gideon thinks, and she uses that to be there when he wants her, to leave when he doesn't, and to fulfill his fantasies when the opportunity arises. However, when she catches him thinking of another girl during an intimate moment, Molly dumps him on the spot. And when a game of spin the bottle goes wrong, Molly ends up inside the head of Pilar, the hottest girl in school, dealing with her insecurities as well as her fantasies about Gideon. In this sequel to Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn (St. Martin's, 2006), one can't help wondering where all the strong female characters have gone. Pilar is a cardboard popular teen, differentiated only by her accent (she is from South America), which is transliterated on the page. Molly spends too much time in other characters' heads to ever assert much of a personality, though the tension that develops with her roommate smacks of authenticity. The wise teacher spouts platitudes that Molly can easily brush off, and the twist at the end and explanation gives pause rather than cause. Not as engaging or appealing as the first book, this title won't stretch the author's fans too far beyond the established base.—Chris Shoemaker, New York Public Library

Review

Praise for The Other Girl:
 
"Readers will again find Molly’s Midvale world full of bawdy talk, pot smoking, and naughty pranks, but they will appreciate the smart insights, too.... This is fun fare—and deeper than a typical prep school series." --Publishers Weekly
 
"The tongue-in-cheek humor, posh prep-school lifestyle, and teen romantic angst make this perhaps the most enjoyable and believable chapter in the lives of Midvale’s preppies." --Booklist
 

Praise for Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn:

“Readers will have a good time living inside Gid’s head as he slowly becomes more confident—and goes a little wild along the way.” –Publishers Weekly

“Teenage angst has never been so appealing.  First-time novelist Sarah Miller has written a funny and penetrating story.” –Library Journal


“Being inside Gideon’s mind is like reading the personal diary of a guy you have a huge crush on and discovering that he’s funny, sexy, wise, and more human than you ever imagined.” –Cecily von Ziegesar, author of the New York Times bestselling Gossip Girl series

“Smart, funny, sexy and totally true, reading Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn is like getting access to a club you've always wondered about...and then you're inside and it's better than you imagined it ever could be.” –Zoey Dean, author of the New York Times bestselling A-List series

“Body image?  Popularity?  Virginity?  Who would have guessed boys worry about this stuff?  Through an unnamed narrator, the reader gets an all access pass inside the mind of an average guy, ultimately discovering that we’re not so different after all.  Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn is required reading for anyone wondering what boys are really thinking.” –Alyson Noël, New York Times bestselling author of Evermore and Blue Moon

This book was a good sequel to the last. The whole idea didn't get tired, like what usually happens with many sequels.
Being inside Pilar's head was a fun. She seems really shallow at first, but you begin to understand why, and then there is major character development. I found myself pitying her, and liking her more than Molly.

I also found the development of Edie quite interesting. Again, like the first book, the descriptions of people and their reactions was great. The reactions of boys to Pilar are priceless and can have you laughing out loud.

I DEFINITELY recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
The Other Girl is the follow up book to Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn. Molly McGarry has been in the mind of her boyfriend, Gideon, for about six months now. While on one hand this is great because she can anticipate his every desire there is also the downside of over hearing him checking out their beautiful classmate, Pilar. When Molly's jealousy gets the better of her she ends up breaking up with Gideon and then watching as he hooks up with Pilar. Suddenly Molly finds herself out of Gideon's mind and in Pilar's mind instead. She tries to use this opportunity to sabotage the new relationship but everything she does seems to push Gideon and Pilar closer together.

I enjoyed this book much more than the first book in the series and did not want to put it down. Gideon's mind was pretty one tracked about girls and sex. Seeing inside of Pilar's mind was much more interesting. We see that while Pilar is arguably the most beautiful girl on campus she still has her own insecurities and wants to be known for more than being the dumb cutie. I found myself liking her much more than I did in the last book and even found myself liking her more than Molly. I actually felt sorry for Pilar and was hoping there would be a happy ending for her. This book will have you smiling and laughing to yourself as you read what goes through Pilar's head.

While we do not see as much of Gideon's roommates, Nicholas and Cullen, they do make some appearances that always liven up the story. It was also enjoyable to get to know Devon and Edie more in this story as well. This was a thoroughly enjoyable book that I highly suggest picking up even if not a fan of the first book.

Format: Hardcover
At Midvale Prep, students Molly McGarry and Gideon Rayburn are an entry. She is his perfect girlfriend as she knows his desires as if she is reading what is inside his head; which is what she is actually doing as she is INSIDE THE MIND OF GIDEON RAYBURN.

However, during an intimate interlude, Molly is stunned when she reads her beloved's thoughts as Gideon's mind wanders over to beautiful Pilar Benitez-Jones. Upset, but needing to conceal what she knows about his mental misdemeanor in order to hide her telepathy ability, Molly struggles with what to do next. However, she loses control of what next when somehow she mislays her brainwave connection to Gideon as her skill abruptly for no known reason that she can comprehend switches to reading Pilar. At the same Gideon starts a campaign to seduce Pilar.

Although some of the support students are stereotypes of the affluent snob, Molly makes the tale with her rapid take no prisoners narration of others especially the rival. Older teen fans will enjoy her antics as she surfs heads not liking what she hears especially Gid and Pilar as a sexual entity. Sarah Miller provides a wonderful sequel as Molly is inside the mind of THE OTHER GIRL.

This is a horrible book written terribly. DON'T BUY THIS, it's a waste of time and money.
