They are good at scaring me, these old favourites of mine, who have new books out with Barrington Stoke. This time it’s Steve Cole, dabbling in reading minds.
In Mind Writer Luke has discovered he can read people’s minds, which to begin with seems rather convenient. Knowing what a teacher is going to ask, for instance. But suddenly Luke reads exactly what goes on in people’s heads, and he finds he doesn’t want to know.
And then a girl called Samira turns up and she can make people do what she wants, including Luke. She puts thoughts into their heads.
Now there is nowhere for Luke to go, and he finds himself having to do what Samira says, which brings them to…
You could hate Samira, who seems evil. Or you can hang in there and wait to see what happens.
