Vibes, the YA novel from Amy Kathleen Ryan, has been picked up for a feature film adaptation.
Comedy centers on a popular 17-year-old cheerleader whose reality is turned upside down when she wakes up with the power to read minds and learns what everyone really thinks of her.
"Ryan works in both a romance and a divorce, and reverses Kristi's instinctive satirizing of people who care about her — and does it all with an abundance of wit," cheers Publishers Weekly.
