  1. Hmm… Red Nectar sounds interesting. I’m half expecting this book to be like Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, whose main character must also search for her grandmother. Since Scarlet was an amazing book, I have high expectations for this one. Having the ability to read minds is a bit overused, but the plot sounds like it could make the concept of reading minds in this novel amazing. Hopefully, the romance won’t be too fast paced (a problem I find common with many YA novels nowadays) and I look forward to getting to know the characters’ personalities.

  2. Wow! The synopsis is very intriguing! I especially love a heroine who is willing to be brave in the face of danger for her family. I think that “mind reading” being incorporated into the story definitely makes it a lot more interesting. I’m a sucker for romance, so I’m definitely excited to see how her relationship with Andrew unfolds! I think that the aspect of the story of her trying to rescue her grandmother is definitely inspiring. I look forward to seeing how Emily will be able to get through all of this. This will be an exciting read!

  3. The premise is intriguing. I can understand why ‘normal’ people would fear mind readers and discriminate against them. If I lacked this ability, I would feel uncomfortable around those who could read my mind. Most people do have unpleasant or inappropriate thoughts that might embarrass them if others were aware of these thoughts. Apprehension toward those who are ‘different’ will probably always be with us. It is simply a fear reaction. Learning to embrace our differences is difficult, no matter what they might be. Allowing our discriminatory feelings to rule our actions is non-productive. I am curious to see how or if Emily rescues her grandmother and how her relationship with Andrew progresses.

  4. As I was reading this I though “wow, it’s sounds really good- I just hope it’s not like Scarlett to much” even though I feel scarlet was great! I hope this book is even better since the two sound closely alike. I’m looking forward to being able to read this book and be proved wrong, and I just can’t wait!
    Out of all the missing-grandma-YA-books I read this one sounds rather promising. Uh! Can’t wait.

  6. I look forward to finding out if Emily Capot is able to rescue her grandmother. I’m curious how people with telepathic abilities are discovered?
