It always sounds great to have superpowers, until you consider the consequences. Teagan Frost knows this all too well, as the only thing keeping her out of a government lab is her work for a shadowy organization that uses her telekinetic powers for the greater good. But even this tenuous freedom could vanish in an instant. When a businessman is killed in an impossible fashion, Teagan is the only suspect. With less than twenty-four hours to solve the crime or take the fall, she has to somehow prove that the only telekinetic on Earth didn’t do it.

As you can tell from the title, The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind isn’t exactly serious drama. And yet, the tension mounts with every page in impressive fashion. It’s exceedingly difficult to balance an action-packed plot with comedic elements — most books that attempt this end up abandoning the comedy midway through — but Teagan’s madcap adventure across Los Angeles remains as snarky and sardonic as it is exhilarating.

And for a novel with telekinesis, the story otherwise manages to sit firmly in the real world. This team of misfits isn’t overpowered, over skilled, or overly lucky; hell, most of them, they survive by the skin of their teeth. That relatability and sincerity turn what could’ve been an average comedic actioner into something deeper and more satisfying.

It may not have quite stuck the landing at the end but for the most part, The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind made the most of its entertaining ingredients.
