Eyecatcher: Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis

by Phoebe Kitanidis
Balzer and Bray (HarperCollins)
ISBN: 9780061799259
Release Date: April 27, 2010

from the publisher's site: 
Joy is used to Hearing Whispers. She's used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people's deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good—to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people's lives—especially Joy's—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears Jessica Whisper I want to kill my Hearing dead, and kill me too if that's what it takes, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car, and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own. 

why it caught my eye: 

This is another one I spotted while reshelving books at work. Then I picked it up and read the blurb and my attention was fully snagged. I'm really curious about this one and it's definitely going on my wishlist. 

How about you readers out there, have any of you read it? What did you think?
