Overview

She was created for a purpose so revolutionary, someone was willing to kill for it.

Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates-she's the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people's thoughts.

But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality-her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others.

After Lexi's father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can't decide whether to fall into Jack's arms or run and hide.

As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.

Meet the Author

Heather Sunseri was raised on a tiny farm in one of the smallest towns in thoroughbred horse country near Lexington, Kentucky. After high school, she attended Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, and later graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in accounting. Always torn between a passion for fantasy and a mind for the rational, it only made sense to combine her career in accounting with a novel-writing dream.

Heather now lives in a different small town on the other side of Lexington with her two children, and her husband, Mike, the biggest Oregon Duck fan in the universe. When she's not writing or working as a CPA, she spends her time tormenting her daughter's cat, Olivia, and loving on her son's Golden Retriever, Jenny. MINDSPEAK is her first published novel.

    Fresh and Exciting Read

    I read about "Mindspeak" from a review on The Character Therapist. I wanted something different to read and after reading the review, I located the book and read the first few pages.

    Heather Sunseri brings a fresh new voice to the table, and the only thing I could think of after reading the last page is "Darn, how long do I have to wait for the next book?"

    I enjoyed the plot and well developed characters. Heather certainly had me turning pages, and in a few places biting my lip in anticipation.

    Great read!

    New Series, New voice, Fresh Reading

    Is it ethical to tamper with genetics, to clone or to use the children of these procedures as part of a secret program? Can Lexi trust the new student, Jack to understand what she is dealing with as a mind speaker? Is there more to Jack than meets the eye? When Jack tells Lexi she is capable of more than just speaking to other minds and Lexi’s scientist father goes missing, the chaos of her world explodes in a flurry of action, adventure and danger in this fresh new YA fantasy, Mindspeak by debut author Heather Sunseri. Can these special children live as “normal” teens?

    With quirky characters, serious characters and heroic characters, all with great dialogue, you will chuckle, gasp, grit your teeth and sigh heavily as the romance becomes a sweet message of hope for the future. And don’t forget the frustration as Jack withholds information from Lexi, promising to tell her later. Ugh! I kept asking Jack, ‘What if later never comes?’ Yep, I was lost completely in this tale.

    If this is representative of the distinctive style of Heather Sunseri, I see a fabulous future for this author!

    Well I have to say this book has a variety of highs and lows. It

    Well I have to say this book has a variety of highs and lows. It started out as a page turner and kept my attention at first but, it was such a long and dragging book that I have to say giving it 3 stars was being generous. I liked the charachters and the idea the book was based on but gee wiz GET TO THE POINT!!!! It lingers expecially when it comes to topics such as who killed my Dad and will she just fall for him and stop playing hard to get, so we can get on with the story. It does finally seem to speed up toward the end and then BLAM! Nothing. I was praying that the book would give a satisfying wrap up of all the events within its pages but, NO. I guess there is a part 2. I just hope that it is not as long as this one. Some great points to the book is that it has a few suprises and is suspenseful.

    I stumbled upon this book in the "free ebook" section

    I stumbled upon this book in the "free ebook" section & decided to give this a try since I was tired of cheesy mysteries. I don't have a single regret! This is an amazing  book if you're into scifi. I often found myself smiling goofily or with a stern expression on my face, which was embarrassing but goes to show how great the book was. I couldn't put it down

    A great read

    What I enjoyed about this book is that you are figuing out the mysteries and answers with the characters instead of reading along, waiting for them to figure out what you have already concluded.

    Amazing!

    I read the entire book in 18 hours.... I was so engulfed in the complexity and details, I couldn't put it down! The brief moments of sleep only brought dreams of the characters. A must read! Hanging on for the next book!
