Mind Games - Kiersten White Short and Sweet:Mind Games has a perfect amount of edginess, without going overboard. Kiersten keeps her readers roped in and invested in this creepy, heartbreaking story of two sisters desperate to be free and whole. You won't want to put it down and will be desperate to pick up the next installment.To Elaborate....Fia and Annie are orphans. Each has always felt a responsible for taking care of the other. So when Annie gets a special scholarship to school that promises to research a treatment for her blindness, Fia follows along even though it feels 'wrong, wrong, wrong.' Soon enough they realize that this school is not at all what it seems and that it wants something from each of them. Mr. Keane, the man secretly in charge, will do anything to get them to comply, and he does. Even sending his own good looking and charming son, James Keane, to run the school and manage Fia and Annie..... but who's side is James really on?Through the entire story, Fia struggles with what she has become and what she has to do to keep Annie safe. Anne likewise feels an extraordinary helplessness and guilt as she is the tool that the school uses to bend Fia into the mold they desire. Both characters are so well developed and believable. I felt connected to each of them and identified with the heartbreak of watching a family member become a stranger. I think Mind Games would make an excellent movie.Overall, an excellent read. I can't wait to see where this story goes in the next installment. While I think Mind Games was misrepresented as 'fast paced,' I liked it so very much.(Originally published @ http://iheartyafiction.blogspot.com/)
