"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 . . ."--Amazon.… (més)

It's a book that grows on you ( )
  perkykeri | Mar 2, 2021 |
You know, it’s funny, how when altered humans are engineered the people doing it never really stop to think how the person they’re doing it to will feel. Teagan’s character reminded me a little bit of Liv Moore from iZombie. Teagan’s love for the city she was finally “free” to explore is hard to put into words – the various descriptions of LA through her eyes are hilarious, heart-wrenching, and beautiful. I didn’t really think that the book plot (or Teagan) was better served by a romantic interest and Teagan’s response at the end was… something. The characters are well rounded with their own individual stories – there’s only one who lacked in background information (of the China Shop crew), Paul. The character that I want to know more about is Africa – he seems like such an interesting person.

I loved the misfit camaraderie of the China Shop crew. I enjoyed the black ops government missions that have a customary smart-ass. Teagan is funny – she’s just not Deadpool level funny. The second POV was intermittent and slightly frustrating. My wish would be the choice between additional chapters to bring them fully into the story or to eliminate their POV chapters. There were several unexpected twists and turns in the plot and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel to see how they pan out.

I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy superheroes, comics, science fiction, suspense/mystery titles. A big thank you to Orbit Books for the opportunity to read this quirky and often hilarious book – all opinions are my own. ( )

Ford, Jackson. The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with her Mind. Frost Files No. 1. Orbit, 2019.
In science fiction sometimes it is true that everything old is new again. From 1962-1972 James H. Schmitz wrote an entertaining bunch of short stories featuring Telzey Amberdon, a genius, psychic law student who works with a sharpshooter named, what else, Trigger. Together, working for a government agency of psychics, they take care of a lot of future baddies. In The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with her Mind, Teagan Frost works with a covert group called China Shop Movers to clean up a lot of psychic crime on the mean streets of future L.A. She is more of a punk valley girl than Telzey, but her spunk and young-adult angst are similar. Girl Who is entertaining when Teagan is telling her own story but falls into cliché when the villain tells his. Three and a half stars for this one. Yes, Virginia, a sequel is already out, and it does have an asterisk in the title. ( )

Nothing beats this title. I requested this pretty much only because of it.

That being said, I read it with an open mind and expected a bunch of snark to go with my telekinesis. The trick to this kind of genre book is not to expect anything outright original but think of it as a great way of telling a fun story.

And for the most part, it is. It's not about science. It's about running a snarky mystery novel with all the heisty action, running, fighting, and reveals that keep our MC alive. You know, with the law and the bad guys both after her and all of it under a time limit. Fun... and slightly forgettable.

Which is a shame because I really LOVE the title! And perhaps I've been spoiled with some truly bonkers snark by Chuck Wendig, so this stuff is not all that breathtaking. It's average. Amusing. And let's face it, it'll probably sell. :)

After all, it has ONE HELL OF A TITLE. :) ( )

The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind is going to be one of my favourite reads of the entire year. I loved this book, and I loved it even more for knowing that there is going to be a sequel to it. I loved the entire concept of the book. Reading The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind, it was like it was written for me. It had almost every element of urban fantasy and sci-fi that I love, and only some I dislike.

The hardest part about this book is figuring out how to abbreviate it. TGWCMSWHM? Move Sh*t? Or even to abbreviate it at all, because how could you ruin such an awesome, descriptive title? This is going to be a hard one. The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind is a mouthful. On two occasions now I've brought up the book to other people, and they've thought I was joking that it was really called that. Yet it is awesome.

I just enjoyed the hell out of reading The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind. It was like watching an action movie that isn't taking itself seriously. This is the kind of urban fantasy I want to read more of, in a genre I already adore. It was made even better because it was probably the most LA thing I've read in quite some time. It isn't that only people in LA would argue about what streets to use during a mad dash across the city, it is that they'll do it every single time. And the characters in The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind do it every single time. As an LA native, though I don't live there any longer, it was like hanging out with family.

The story isn't really any different in The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind as it is in many other urban fantasy series. Someone is dead, and they are blaming our main character, Teagan Frost, for doing it. All because the fact that she is the only one who has her powers, and only her powers could have caused the death in this way. Right? No, apparently not. Teagan has 22 hours (she isn't even allowed 24!) to clear her name, or the government will lock her up and experiment on her. Again.

Teagan Frost is fun. She doesn't really like being a government agent, she just doesn't have a choice. She loves food, and wants to own a restaurant, instead. She also just wants to have fun and eat good food. She wants to be a normal person, as normal as she can be with telekinesis that no one else has. Her workmates are scared of her, but she is okay with that, for the most part. She has her friends, who don't know what she can do, and she isn't going to let a bunch of people who don't matter make her feel worse about herself.

The ending was special to me. It isn't often I get blindsided by the end to a book. An end that I didn't actually see coming. I didn't expect the stakes that ended up happening. I definitely didn't expect the twist at the end. Maybe I should have, maybe I couldn't have. But it is definitely special to me. I love being surprised.

The entire book is also special to me because of what happened with the romance over the course of the book. Once again, I didn't expect parts of it to play out as it did. And I respect the hell out of Jackson Ford for doing what he did with it. I didn't expect how it played out, because I have never, ever seen it done that way. And it is a way that I dearly wish more authors would use, because it is so effective, and so much more honest than what I normally see. I absolutely adored it.

The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind is a bit predictable. But I'm alright with that, because mostly it is just a hell of a lot of fun. However, sometimes I really wished it would just have taken itself a bit more seriously. It just took everything a step too far over some lines I have in my head between serious, ridiculous, and over-the-top. I'll be okay with the ridiculous elements, until just one more thing will set me over the edge into territory I couldn't take seriously or believe anymore. That's okay, I just had trouble adapting to it.

I loved this book as much as I hated it. Which really means that I loved it so much that every time it diverged even a tiny bit from what I wanted, it was jarring and discordant to me, and I got upset by this divergence. But, I loved it all the same. The next title in the series, Random Sh*t Flying Through the Air, is going to be on my preorder list as soon as I find it on Amazon.

I received this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Jackson Ford, Orbit, and Netgalley for providing the opportunity to review this copy! ( )
