Hey Everyone,

Hope you had a good week.

The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind by Jackson Ford

For Teagan Frost, sh* just got real.

Teagan Frost is having a hard time keeping it together. Sure, she’s got telekinetic powers — a skill that the government is all too happy to make use of, sending her on secret break-in missions that no ordinary human could carry out. But all she really wants to do is kick back, have a beer, and pretend she’s normal for once.

But then a body turns up at the site of her last job — murdered in a way that only someone like Teagan could have pulled off. She’s got 24 hours to clear her name – and it’s not just her life at stake. If she can’t unravel the conspiracy in time, her hometown of Los Angeles will be in the crosshairs of an underground battle that’s on the brink of exploding . . .

Full of imagination, wit, and random sh*t flying through the air, this insane adventure from an irreverent new voice will blow your tiny mind.

Thoughts

Oh My Fucking God, this book has officially been declared as a Favourite of 2020. I could not stop loving it.

Teagan Frost is a young woman, living in Los Angeles, massive foodie (wants to open her own restaurant) oh and also she has the ability to move stuff with her mind. She grew up in an environment of being tested, by her parents and the government. She then met a woman who goes by the name Tanner, Tanner recruits Teagan for her special abilities for some covert jobs but one job doesn’t go as planned. Hours later, Teagan is accused by her team and Tanner for murder which she knew she didn’t commit. Tanner has given her 22 hours to find out who did it but things don’t go the way they planned, Teagan is then tracked by Tanner and the police.

I am already in love with Jackson Ford’s writing, he made it informative but also fun and enjoyable. I really liked how he made Teagan the type of woman who couldn’t care less if people knew about her powers, she is very carefree and enjoys her life but of course she is very flawed, she is stubborn, determined but also protective. She cares about the people around her, so when they are on the run from the police Teagan learns more about her team than she ever did before. Teagan does remind me a little bit of Kate Bishop from Marvel, you know the other Hawkeye.

So not only are you following Teagan, but you are also introduced to another character named Jake, he is someone who always knew that he was the weird one, but he also wanted to know about why his mother abandoned him. He’s young and very timid, you learn what his upbringing was like, how he felt so isolated but also how he was not in control with his emotions.

I think the first chapter of this book would make you want to pick it up, I think it’s the best. “On second thoughts, throwing myself out of the window of a skyscraper may not have been the best idea. Not because I’m going to die or anything. I’ve totally got that under control. It wasn’t smart because I had to bring Annie Cruz with me. And Annie, it turns out, is a screamer. Her fists hammer on my back, her voice piecing my eardrums, even over the rushing air.”

Another one, I think it brilliant which is actually towards the end of the book. But don’t worry, it’s not very plot spoilery. “I stand. My feet are unsteady, so unsteady that I almost sit right back down. Almost. I take a deep breath, then another. I’ll be fine. After all, I have superpowers. I survived a fall from the top of a skyscraper with no parachute. I can sure as hell survive this. As long as I have breakfast inside me” (Food is very important for Teagan).

I couldn’t leave this book alone, I wanted to savour it but the writing was soo good that I needed to know. I can’t believe I have to wait for book two in three months time. This book left off with the thought of what might happen in Random Sh*t Flying Through The Air but I hope that there would be more inclusion of Teagan and her friends because I really liked the relationship that Teagan has gained with Annie, Paul and Reggie.

Clearly, I have gushed about this book for a long time. I don’t usually read any science fiction books but as soon as I saw the title of the book I knew that I would like this book, without a doubt. I hope you are having a lovely day and see you next time.
