"...combines science, paranormal romance, and timely ethical debates within a compelling teen world... Romantic, mysterious, and exciting, Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri is a debut that delivers on every level." - USA Today
About the Author
Heather Sunseri was raised on a tiny farm in one of the smallest towns in thoroughbred horse country near Lexington, Kentucky. After high school, she attended Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, and later graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in accounting. Always torn between a passion for fantasy and a mind for the rational, it only made sense to combine her career in accounting with a novel-writing dream. Heather now lives in a different small town on the other side of Lexington with her two children, and her husband, Mike, the biggest Oregon Duck fan in the universe. When she’s not writing or working as a CPA, she spends her time tormenting her daughter’s cat, Olivia, and loving on her son’s Golden Retriever, Jenny. MINDSPEAK is her first published novel.

I read lots of teen fiction books. This one was slow with underdeveloped characters. The end of Mindspeak leaves the reader hanging, but it was so slow I don't want to waste money or time on the second book. I do not recommend this book. It was slow with cheesy dialogue.
The only reason this one gets 3 stars instead of 2 was because I liked the characters and the basic premise. The execution was it’s flaw.
Most of the time, the writer is very good at creating dialogue that flows naturally and follows a logical path. The characters were well developed. It's also very refreshing to find an author who isn't afraid of the PC crowd and will still include belief in God as a valid characteristic in a person's, especially a young person's, life base. Thanks you for the courage it took to do that!
What I did take away stars for was the constant creation of ridiculous scenarios that intentionally left characters (other than the lead, Lexi) shrouded in mystery and suspicion. Sorry, but it was used way too much. I never did figure out why that was done, unless it was in an attempt to build excitement, which it did not (in me) - rather mostly frustration. Maybe it would work for young teens. The never-ending 'discoveries' got tiresome and most of the time little or next to nothing new was discovered which made the story line drag along somewhat. I've never read any of the Harry Potter books or seen any of the movies (I've only seen the movie trailers) but I get the feeling this author might have been trying too hard to copy that successful book/movie series. You Harry Potter fans out there will have to tell me if I'm right or wrong.
Also, the ending was weak and simply leads into the next book. Not a fan of never-ending book series. A book should have a strong ending. If it's good - we'll definitely buy the next one.
I thought the author did a great job developing each individuals (Jack and Lexi's three friends) personality, their concern for Lexi. However, there were times, especially in the middle where the story slowed down considerably, and where I felt it was repeating the same thoughts from earlier.
For the most part I did like the book. I think the age group is perfect for Teen/YA.
