When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.
Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can’t read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can’t be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf’s mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she’s dragged deep into a hidden underworld of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.
TOP 5 FINALIST for 2012 Best Indie Book, Young Adult Fiction – The Kindle Book Review
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I could not put down this book! From the very beginning, Kira’s adventures and the world of readers, jackers and zeroes is riveting. If you are a fan of the Hunger Games trilogy this should be your next read! You will get hooked!
Oh my God! What a fantastic story! The author had me clinging to the edge of my seat though out the entire book. If it were possible I would give this book six stars, but since I can’t I will gladly give it five out of five.
This series by Ms. Quinn is exceptional. Get a hold of this Indie author and never let go. She is a go to entertainer for your kindle.
I loved the story line of this book and found it to be very original. It was fast paced and full of unexpected twists. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
I would highly recommend this story to everyone. Character development is solid. The story flowed nicely. It did not jump around and get you all confused. I look forward to the second installment!

About The Author
Susan Kaye Quinn grew up in California, where she wrote snippets of stories and passed them to her friends during class. Her teachers pretended not to notice and only confiscated her stories a couple times.
She left writing behind to pursue a bunch of engineering degrees (B.S. Aerospace Engineering, M.S. Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering) and work everywhere from NASA to NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) to a little Venice Beach restaurant called The Green Bean (she was the bookkeeper). She has designed aircraft engines, studied global warming, and held elected office (as a school board member). Now that she writes novels, her business card says “Rocket Scientist and Author,” and she doesn’t have to sneak her notes anymore.
Which is too bad.
All that engineering comes in handy when dreaming up dystopian future worlds or mixing science with fantasy to conjure slightly plausible inventions. For her stories, of course. Just ignore that stuff in the basement.
Her middle grade boys clamor for more middle grade books with magic and gadgets and less teen novels with kissing. Unfortunately for them, she enjoys writing both.
Susan writes from the Chicago suburbs with her three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as much as she can handle.
