When I first saw the cover of Into You, I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. Now that I’ve read it, the cover makes perfect sense.
Riley J. Ford has written a quirky teen paranormal, romantic comedy, murder mystery for young adults. Yes, it’s all of those things wrapped up into one.
The characters are in high school. The basic premise of the main character’s ability to read minds only when she is kissing the person who’s mind she wants to read, is rather high school-ish. But … the story itself is more adult and written for mature readers. Parents can use their discretion as to whether or not it’s appropriate, just as they would with movies that are rated PG-13 or R. And adults can certainly enjoy it!
Riley Ford has a degree in English and has taught at the high school and college level. She clearly understands how teen and young adult minds work!
Into You is an entertaining read.
