Sixteen-year-old Maddie Dunn needs to learn how to use her special abilities before somebody else gets hurt. Ganzfield is a secret training facility full of people like her, but it's not exactly a nurturing place. Every social interaction carries the threat of mind-control.A stray thought can burn a building to the ground.And people's nightmares don't always stay in their own heads.But it's still better than New Jersey,especially once she meets the man of her dreams?

I want to give this book a beyond awesome rating... because after 4 DNF(did not finish) books I finally finished a book (i.e.This one!)
The concept in this book blew me away!
I've always had a fascination with mutants.Vampires, werewolves,witches etc. always seemed very unreal to me because there is no way that they exist .Mutants always seemed like a possibility to me.They could exist you know.... That's why I've always been a HUGE X-Men fan!
In this book Maddie is a minder,a person who can read minds and has the ability to do a lot of pretty freaky stuff. I really liked Maddie,I would love her more if she was more sarcastic but I think she was a little too lovestruck throughout the book to actually show off her awesome sarcastic comeback/one-liner skills.
I'm not sure whether I like Trevor or not but I loved Drew!
Drew thought I was an action hero.He also thought he was an action hero.He thought Hannah was an angel of healing,and that Rachel was ok to have around,too,in case we needed to find stuff.The memories of that horrible night had morphed into an amazing tale of adventure in his mind.Loved this guy!
I'd like to see where the author goes from here in Adversary.
there's violence, sensuality, and the characters deal with serious issues like sexual assault, but there's no sex in the book, and the language is pretty clean overall.
