5.0 out of 5 stars My hats off to you Kimberly Kinrade, October 7, 2011
This review is from: Forbidden Mind (The Forbidden Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Forbidden Mind

I found "FORBIDDEN MIND" by KIMBERLY KINRADE on Twitter. I was happy to R&R this YA book for the author. She was super nice & the book seemed pretty cool. I WAS reading another book at the time (ENCLAVE by ANN AGUIRRE) & flipped through a few pages of "FM" & suffice it to say "ENCLAVE" was forgotten about for the next few hours!

"FM" opens up with our main character, Sam, a girl about to turn 18 that has the ability to read minds. She lives in an elite "school" AKA "RENT-A-KID" for kids with "para-powers". The kids are "rented out" to do jobs where their powers come in handy.

Sam has been very successful at eaves dropping on people's minds and finding out seriously damaging secrets that help ruin people, their lives, families, and businesses.

She has been preparing for her new life outside of the school. Once her 18th birthday rolls around she is free to leave and begin her new life. The one she has been planning with her best friends for years and years.

Right before her going away party her mind "links" in with another boy who is being held captive in the same school she freely walks around and lives in. Drake has exceptionally strong para-powers. His plea's of "HELP ME" do not go unnoticed by Sam.

When Sam quickly realizes what the school REALLY has in store for her, and who Drake really is, together they hatch a plan to free themselves and take down the people who have been exploiting them and their powers for years and years.
So begins this fast paced tale that has you eagerly flipping pages into the wee hours of the night. This book draws you in hook, line, and sinker!

Sam and Drake, para powers aside, are teenagers you find yourself loving & rooting for from the get go. They have powers that are not "normal" but their reactions and the way they handle their situation is what had me eagerly reading page after page until the very end.

Kimberly Kinrade knew what she was doing when she penned this little gem. She gave us a refreshingly fast paced & thrilling YA book. It is not a cookie cutter model of what's on the shelf around it either. From the cover to the contents it is a perfect package.
