Minder by Kate Kaynak

Title: Minder

Author: Kate Kaynak

Published: Spencer Hill Press, 2010

Pages: 264

Series: Book 1, Ganzfield

First Line: "I felt the eyes on the back of my head, like a too-warm itch within my skull."

Summary: Sixteen-year-old Maddie Dunn is special, but she needs to figure out how to use her new 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... (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Minder is an amazing read, I'm not just saying that.  It is truly fantastic.  I started reading Minder and I just couldn't stop.  There was something about it that just drew me in.
One thing I really liked about Minder was that there were serious elements, and then there were elements that made me laugh out loud.
I loved the whole idea of Minder, it's not very often that I get to read books about psychics so when I do I really enjoy them.  Minder is definitely no exception to the rule.  I think one of the things I love the most about Minder is that it has different kinds of psychics.  Usually with books they tend to highlight the good things about having psychic abilities and ignore the bad parts but Minder makes it far more realistic by showing that there are both good and bad parts to having psychic abilities.
Kate Kaynak has created a great story with Minder and I devoured the entire thing in no time, because it really is amazing and there were no parts of the book that I got bored.  The whole book was really interesting and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
If you're interested in psychics and looking for a quick, light and amazing read then I definitely recommend Minder.
