The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind Review

Hello, all!

The one superpower that I always wished I could have was telekinesis. I think it would be so cool to be able to move objects with my mind. The fact that it would also help me get things off high shelves because I am very small is just an added bonus. This is why I jumped at the chance to read The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind by Jackson Ford, so big thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the copy!

This story follows Teagan Frost, a young woman with telekinesis who scrapes by in life working jobs for the government that no ordinary human can manage. She pretty much has no choice in the matter because it's either do some break-ins for the higher ups or rot in a laboratory, and as much as Teagan may not love her job, it sure beats being experimented on.

Things were going pretty smoothly for Teagan, that is until a body turns up at the site of her team's last break-in killed in a way that could've only been done by someone with her powers. Now, Teagan has less than 24 hours to not only clear her name, but save the lives of her teammates as well. Teagan has gone her whole life thinking she was the only one of her kind, and now she must hunt down this stranger before her whole city goes up in flames.

I had really high hopes for this book, and while I did like it, I just felt it lacked something. Right from the get go it was jam packed with tons of action and the adrenaline only kept building the entire time. All the bits of Teagan using her powers were really cool, and they're very clear about how it's not magic but science that gave her her abilities which is a break from the typical superpower trope. I think my main issue was the dialogue. Most of the interactions between the group, for me, felt a bit forced. All of these characters come from tough backgrounds, and I almost felt the dialogue tried a little too hard to have that come across. Despite that, there were still enjoyable parts, but I'm not sure if I'll continue with the series if there is one.

Rating: 3/5
