M.I.N.D.: Mental Invasive Neurological Disorder
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Imagine skydiving or bungee-jumping or snowboarding down a glacier-and you never have to leave your room. Imagine being sixteen and hooking up with the crush-of-your-life, and you never have to put on lip gloss. Meet Cassie Stewart, who can project her mind into other people at will. She sees what they see, feels what they feel, but she can't read their thoughts. It's a wild ride, but harmless. Or so she thinks. Until a fatal hit-and-run makes Cassie realize she is in a unique position to help solve the crime. It's exhilarating to use your talent to help others, and, yeah, an enormous power trip as well. But what if something goes wrong and you can't get back? What if the body you're trapped in is committing a murder-and the person he's murdering is you?

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars

M.I.N.D.: Mental Invasive Neurological Disorder “I don’t have any idea what’s going on, but I know this: I’m in a dark place and I have to get out.”

This was a YA sci-fi story, about a girl who could transfer her consciousness into other people’s bodies.

Cassie was an okay character, although she could be a bit annoying at times. She also came across as a little naïve, and it was quite a stretch for her to think that she could solve a hit-and-run case with no proof.

The storyline in this started off being about Cassie developing the ability to jump into other people’s heads whilst napping, and being able to see what they were doing and feel what they were feeling. We also had a storyline about a girl, Amanda, being in a coma, and another storyline about a hit-and-run that had taken place. Cassie was sure that Amanda had been involved in the incident somehow, especially as she had an argument with her boyfriend about something that seemed to be upsetting her. The pace was a bit slow in this book, but the story was enjoyable.

The ending to this was pretty good, and I was satisfied with the way things turned out.

6.5 out of 10
