Summary (via the publisher's website): "I'd love a cup of coffee. . . . I wish she didn't hide how pretty she is. . . . I hope she didn't find out what Ben said about her. . . . I wish I knew how many calories were in a bite of muffin. . . .
Joy is used to Hearing Whispers. She's used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people's deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good—to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people's lives—especially Joy's—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears Jessica Whisper I want to kill my Hearing dead, and kill me too if that's what it takes, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car, and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own."
Review: Interesting read. I liked her ability, and I liked the glimpse of character development that I saw. I feel like I got a really good feel for her character in the beginning (despite kind of wanting to smack her), and I liked seeing her change and grow in the second half of the book.
I haven't said this so far about any books I've read that have sequels coming out in the future, but I really want to read another book about Joy. I want to see what kind of kick-A person she can be when she's not being a toady.
