Thus reads an article in the Waverly Times, which is Exhibit A in this fresh and inventive story about ESP, friendship, sisterhood, and the ties that bind. Told by the characters themselves, Mind Games crackles with personality and reveals how each student tries to prove that ESP exists and what they discover along the way. Members of the Mad Science club are not always on the same wavelength, but they are all in for an experiment that they'll never forget. Here they grapple with life, death, love, and the lottery -- all before they reach the eighth grade!
Each of the six members of Mr. Ennis's Mad Science Club presents a report of his or her experiences working on a science fair project to investigate ESP, which resulted in their winning the Maryland lottery.

I would rate this book 4 stars because it has a lot of jokes and keeps you confused and laughing all through out the book. I also think people will love this book because its about an ordinary girl who is from a different country just try to get along with everybody in school and trying to make friends and good grades in school , but of course diffucluties and frustration comes with it. I would recommend this book to people who like following other peoples journeys and who like comedy. This book is very good in so many different ways
