Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

When Bridget finds a dead cheerleader in the janitor’s closet, she becomes the killer’s next target. High school just got worse. It’s bad enough that she can hear the shocking truths that pass through her classmate’s heads. Now she has to worry about staying alive, and all clues point to the one person whose thoughts she can’t read - her boyfriend Terrence. Someone is taunting her, threatening to expose her secret. And when Bridget tries to single out her blackmailer, she’s nearly beaten to death by a mind controlled minion with fiery eyes.
But when Bridget finally comes face-to-face with the killer, suddenly a horde of brainwashed students programmed to destroy her life doesn’t seem so bad.
I’ve received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
Bridget seems to be a normal girl but she keeps big secret: she can hear the thoughts of other people. Because of this, and in an attempt to remain sane, she does her best to avoid other people.
Only her mother knows about Bridget ability but when Bridget finds the body of a cheerleader and the killer starts targeting her, her friend Rory and her boyfriend Terrance– the only person whose thoughts she can’t hear - her secret might be in danger of being discovered.
Bridget is an interesting main character. She obviously has her issues but she’s also sweet, smart, determined and she’s not afraid to recognize her mistakes.
Rory really is the voice of reason for Bridget and the one she knows she can trust. He’s a good, sweet guy. His banter with Bridget was one of the best things in the book.
I wasn’t quite sure what to think of Terrance but I enjoyed the fact his relationship with Bridget wasn’t completely perfect like in some other stories. Bridget really wants them to work out but she’s also well aware that there are a lot of things they don’t know about each other.
Thoughtless is an interesting, fast-paced story. There were some plot holes as the story developed and the timeline became a little confusing sometimes but I still thought the book was enjoyable and entertaining.
If you like Young Adult, Paranormal books I think you might enjoy this story.

Rating: Readable  (3 Stars)
