This is a really awesome thriller/mystery! I love the way everything unfolded. I thought I had the whole thing figured out, but Silver is GOOD. She pulled one over on me.

MIND GAMES is a smart, sexy sci fi thriller that will keep you guessing until the end. Arden is a hacker with a lucrative side job of selling other people’s thoughts and experiences. If you ever wondered what it would be like to be homecoming queen you could download the memory and experience it like it was your own. Or if you forgot to study for a quiz, you can use someone else’s memories. Everything is going fine until Arden realizes that her own memories have been hacked. She’s missing thousa ...more

I was lucky enough to read an early version of Mind Games, and wow... it was so good! This book was SO hard to put down — I read it in only two sittings. Such a unique premise. The stakes were high, the hook was fantastic, the world-building was excellent, and I loved Arden's voice. And Arden and Sebastian's relationship? Swoonworthy! <3

This book was received as an ARC from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

I have never been more invested in a plot as I have been with Mindgames. Mindgames at first when I read the description reminded me a lot of Tron and Ready Player One, two favorites for our young patrons. This book was better! The drama and the suspense Arden faces for herself just by getting involved with virtual reali

This is a review of an ARC from Edelweiss

I just couldn't get into this one. The idea is interesting - in a world where people store their memories in the cloud, there's money to be made in selling them. A teenager at a special school hacks a program to create a brisk trade in important memories - answers to a test, catching a winning touchdown, etc - until she her own memories are wiped and has to find out why.

This just didn't grab me though - and I immediately was finding flaws in the logical

Mind Games is a sprint to the finish line! The debut novel from Shana Silver is engaging, though a bit over narrated. The plot, while well thought out is a bit predictable, but intense action scenes and confrontations help to more the storyline along.

Arden is a coding genius in a school for tech geniuses. Everyone who is connected to the school is also connected to a breakthrough technology Arden's parents invented -- HiveMind. Imagine cloud-service for your thoughts and memories. When Arden re
