Just like the first one in the series, this is a fun and fast SF filled with horrendous amounts of selfishness, cooking, and world-destroying earthquakes.

What? Did you expect the TK to just be something minor like random sh*t flying through the air?

Give the author some credit. When we need to have some slightly unbelievable OP action, it's best not to go comic-book bland. Go big or go home.

I didn't even care that this four-year-old baddie was quite THAT smart or THAT powerful. It was just goofy

In the first book in The Frost Files, The Girl Who Could Move Sh#t With her Mind. Teagan Frost was attempting to learn how to use and control her psychokinetic powers. Working as part of a team of misfits for the government under the front of a removals company known as China Shop Movers. Dreaming of opening a restaurant. Learning that she isn’t the only person in the world with sup

Despite Orbit putting it directly in the email I was sent, I didn't realize this was book two in a series. Thankfully, in the end, it didn't matter. It feels like it was deliberately written so you can just waltz into book two and understand what's going on. That said, there are a ton of spoilers for book one, including major plot points, character deaths, and other things that might ruin your enjoyment if you intend on reading the first one. I personally don't give a shit about spoilers, so all ...more

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The nitty-gritty: Another fun entry into Ford's Frost Files series, get ready for earthquakes, snarky characters, an evil genius child, and plenty of sh*t flying around.

I'm grateful to the publisher for an advance e-copy of this book via NetGalley.

Whew. What a chase...

Random Sh*t Flying Through the Air (the asterisk is part of the title, not censorship by me) is a welcome return to the messed up LA of Teagan Frost. This book is the second in the series, following The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with her Mind, in which Teagan's already bizarre world was turned upside down and one of her closest friends killed. Do stop and read that first if you haven't, because the

As mentioned Random Sh*t Flying Through The Air is the follow up to The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind. We pick up six months or so after the events of the first book, and Teagan is trying to get back on track. It appears her powers are getting stronger, which hasn't gone unnoticed.

We are also introduced to a new character. A four year old boy, who also has powers. While Teagan can move inorganic material, this young boy has the power to move earth. Not only that but he appears to enjoy

Random, erm, stuff certainly does fly through the air in this, the second novel to feature Teagan Frost, whose power is growing even as her power over her own life gets ever more tenuous…

Once again this is a rip roaring adventure with a lot of highs and the occasional WTAF moment, a wildly entertaining rollercoaster read that totally grips from first page to last.

It randomly involves a creepy sinister child, buildings collapsing, aeroplanes making hard landings and of course random sh*t through

I think I liked this even more than the first one! A really fun romp with a lot of mad shit happening, and some feelings sprinkled in for seasoning. Features one of the most "love to hate them" characters I've ever come across.

I enjoyed The Girl That Could Move Shit With Her Mind thoroughly, and there were definitely aspects of this book that I enjoyed a lot as well, but some parts simply fell flat. As a 19 year old woman living in the Greater Los Angeles Area, I would’ve thought that this book would speak to me more. The little joys I get when I hear them mention Watts Towers or the 405 or Angeles National Forest are definitely a bonus in the book, as its fun reading about characters being around the same areas you a ...more

Teagen, The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind, is back and things are looking up for her. She's got a steady job working for the China Shop a cover ops team based in L.A. under the guise of a moving company, her friend Nic is getting closer to getting closer, and nobody is trying to arrest her for murder, which was a thing in the first book. She's Teagan is the most self-absorbed hero ever to brandish special powers, but she's getting better. Of course that can't last.

Alrite, this one was fun - fast-paced, riveting fun with a definite expansion of the world of Teagen Frost and an escalation in terms of the overall story arc as well - this was a good book 2

This book sees Teagen and her cover unit, China Shop face an opponent like they havent encountered before - a 4 year old who can cause earthquakes. This escalation in power-wielding abilities plays alongside political considerations surrounding the lead of China Shop as well as Teagen's own ambitions outside

This was definitely an entertaining read. The antagonist being 4 years old did bring me out of the book a little bit. While I know Matthew is super intelligent I still can't imagine even a super smart 4 year old acting like he did. The ending was also a little unsatisfying for me. It was clearly an opening for the next book, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I still wasn't 100% sold on the ending. I think it's because while I did enjoy this book I'm not sure I'm invested enough to read th ...more

Ford, Jackson. Random Sh*t Flying Through the Air. Frost Files No. 2. Orbit, 2020.
Teagan used to think she was the only psychokinetic in the world. No such luck. There is another one now, a four-year-old boy who doesn’t mind causing an earthquake or two. As with the first book in this series, the story works best when Teagan is onstage. But Random Sh*t did have one unexpected element—there are some rather subtle examples of different kinds of selfishness. That is like finding a piece of steak in

Teagan Frost is back and trying to stop California from being cast into the sea by an insane genius four year old (which is arguably a normal four year old) who has command over the earth and passion for earthquakes.
The things I liked about this are the same things I liked about the first book. The plot is dense and layer setting out thread for future books, there’s a ticking clock that keeps thing moving and it’s funny.
However Teagan is super annoying she goes from super confident arrogance t

I was totally prepared for a big dumb action movie of a book based on the first one. And it delivered at first, with lots of explosions, epic disaster scenes, and characters with snappy dialogue. It even has a bad guy who is like a Saturday morning cartoon villain. But the ending was really unsatisfying, and I got tired of the main character. Not planning to continue with the series.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Orbit for an eARC in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.


I’ve been absolutely dying for this book since the first book ended and at the very end, there was the title of this book, and I immediately knew I had to have it. Just yes. So I’ve waited for just shy of an eternity for this, and was it worth it? No, okay? I mean, yes, but no, it was not because now I have to wait for another eternity for

For reference, before we begin, I’m going to refer to this book henceforth as Random Sh*t. I can’t be bothered typing Random Sh*t Flying Through the Air all the time. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a brilliant title for a brilliant book, but it’s wearing me out. The prospect alone of having to repeatedly type it out is giving me the fear.

I waffle on a lot about character evolution in my reviews. It is one of the things that fascinates me about the writing process. This novel, and its predecessor, are

Okay to preface this review, I literally just now made a goodreads account just to leave a review of this book. Also, I read 'The Girl Who Could Move Shit With Her Mind' about a year ago and absolutely loved it, favorite book of the past 5 years for me. Loved the characters, loved the story, really good pacing, the works. So no shit I was excited for the sequel. Unfortunately, while this sequel started off strong, I'm now 80 pages away from the ending and don't even think I can finish it. If you ...more

>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 2nd in the Frost Files series and ends in a cliffhanger. Teagan and the gang try to stop a 4 year old with special powers from causing the greatest earthquake ever in CA. The story shows a huge morality conflict as the 4 year old has no remorse and really wants to hurt people. What 4 year old has a developed sense of remorse though? Teagan is told the boy must be killed, but she holds out hope he can

Amber and her four year old son flee New Mexico before government agents overrun the school. On their way to California Matthew finds a fault line and triggers an earthquake. This just whets his appetite for bigger releases of his earth moving power.

While Teagan and the China Shop group go on an undercover mission, there is a second larger quake and Reggie discovers the cause of the first one. [For the last four or five days I've got in my head the Los Angeles is a disaster area, but John that's

Jackson Ford is the author of The Frost Files series, including The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind and Random Sh*t Flying Through the Air). He may or may not be the alter ego of author Rob Boffard, but he is definitely 100% a jackass.
