Don't Even Think About it by Sarah Mylnowski
They went by homeroom to get their flu shots just like everyone else in the school. But the students in this class got something more in their shot. Each of them develops telepathic powers and can hear what anyone nearby is thinking. Cool, right? Maybe, when you realize that you can get an A on a test just by sitting near the smartest kid in class and reading the answers out of his brain. But maybe not so much when you're trying to hide the fact that you've been cheating on your perfect boyfriend or when you find out that one of your teachers used to be a stripper. Now there are some strangers in the school who are trying to find out if anyone has any unusual powers and although most of the class would like to get rid of their mind-reading ability, they don't know if they can trust these people.
This is a fun read but some parts were a little long for me and there were definitely too many characters to keep track of! Once I finally got all of them figured out the book flowed better but I had to do quite a bit of re-reading until then. As with most books, I would've been happier to have this be a single stand alone title rather than the opening to a series.
