What if you could see inside the head of the guy you love? Know his every thought? Feel his every dream and fantasy? The mystery girl who’s Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn can. She tells us the intoxicating story of her beloved Gideon, an adorably clueless boy who flukes his way into New England's fanciest prep school. 


Gideon's naïve compared to the wolves at Midvale Academy, especially Cullen and Nicholas, his charming, morally ambiguous roommates. They welcome Gid by trashing his music and betting big on when he’ll lose his virginity. Will he lose it with the cute and feisty Molly McGarry? Or Pilar Benitez-Jones, the most beautiful girl Gid’s ever seen? Gid actually likes Molly and hooking up with her might be possible. But winning Pilar would be legendary. Gid is torn—he wants to prove himself to his roommates, but he also wants love.

Through it all there is one hysterically funny girl sharing every thought in Gid’s conflicted little mind. But who is she?

Listener Opinions

    " I liked the books overall concept, but it the writing itself was so vulgar that it became repetitive and annyoing. The only parts I laughed at were the narrator's thoughts on his thoughts. His thoughts were... eww. And the excuse of raging teenage hormones is not going to work. The drugs weren't necessary, but overall it was a so-so book. I wished I'd spent my money on Thirteen Days to Midnight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron L | 2/3/2014

    " this book is not for everyone. it appeals most to older teens who have ventured into the realm of girls, drugs, and sex. it has a lighthearted tone and some situations in it are pretty funny. a great read, but teens will probably be able to relate to it more than others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frezanda | 1/26/2014

    " Interesting idea. Getting in the mind of a boy. The girl point of view on boy's behavior were amusing. What I found annoying is the long narrative by the girl ( How do you have time to prose on and on), confusion between the girl's thought and the boy's thought (somehow it's not clearly defined in some sections),and the cover(what does it supposed to mean?). Even though it's an interesting idea though I conclude that it's impossible to get in the boy's mind as what the girl did. How did she manage two minds? Didn't she have a life? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Peck | 1/21/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book but I found the frame of it ... "inside the head of"... unnecessary and confusing. There were times where the prose was clunky and difficult to follow and I think it was because of the point of narration. I thought maybe I'd see why the frame was necessary at the end and I didn't. Other than that, the characters and situations were fantastic and it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 1/9/2014

    " Amazing, it basically gives you the girl's thoughts on the guy's perpective of the love stories and drama at a prep school in the US "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie E | 1/5/2014

    " This book was a pretty decent book. Although there were a lot of drug-related and sexual things/discussions in this book, the lesson learned was a fair one. "Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn" was not a very good book if you're going to do a book talk or a public review, due to the excessive amount of inappropriate content. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenn | 12/25/2013

    " entertaining enough. read very quickly. it's my answer to everyone I know reading teen fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 12/25/2013

    " The book tells the story of Gideon Rayburn's first few months at prep school. Gideon falls in with his two roommates, who are the cool kids on campus, and struggles with love. The story would be completely uninteresting, except for the narrator. The narrator is some unnamed girl who magically knows Gideon's every thought and comments on many of them. The narrator is also a character in the story and it adds a compelling element of mystery to try and figure out who the narrator is by the end of the story. Red herrings abound, and, as is often the case, applying meta-knowledge of "good story structure" will get you to the right answer much quicker than trying to analyze the actual words. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the conceit and enjoyed reading the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yajaira | 12/25/2013

    " This book was sort of hard to get into. It had a slow start, but got better as I got to the middle of the book. Its sort of a mystery, while you read your trying to figure out who's the narrator. I have to admit it was a hard book to read in general, but it helped me get through a boring summer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kendra | 12/12/2013

    " Pretty stupid and I'm not sure anyone should be inside the mind of a teenage boy (certainly not me who will someday have a teenage boy - yikes!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellee | 12/9/2013

    " i liked this book as much as i disliked it. i think its impossible to write a guys mind if you are a woman. we just dont think alike. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalia | 10/13/2013

    " A must read!!! You'll laugh out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margarita | 10/4/2012

    " It was really good .. but it's kinda boring at the beginning :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 2/17/2012

    " i don't know if i agree with the despcription of this book as a kind of vapid but tasty catcher in the rye. but it is fucking enjoyable. i laughed out loud multiple times. and at 26 i felt like i was learning something about men (boys?) from a book for 14 year olds. sigh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 12/18/2011

    " After reading this book I wanted to be Gid's girlfriend. And I kinda knew who the girl was...kinda...but not really. And that made the book so impossible to put down!! Oh..and I also wanted to attend a snooty private boarding school. Cause...really...how cool does it all sound?! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 9/29/2011

    " Exactly what I like my audiobooks to be - mindless and entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat Colorado | 8/5/2011

    " A nice find from the library. I enjoyed the view through Gid's eyes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 6/28/2011

    " This is one of my favorite books. You'll be rooting for Gid to make the right choice the whole time, even when he seems to lose himself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 6/15/2011

    " A tad bit raunchy but overall really good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzi | 4/25/2010

    " I really liked this book. I've never read anything like this before and although it was a bit confusing in the beginning trying to figure out the different characters who were speaking, it was great. How cool is it to be in someone's mind and hear everything they think about? Read it and find out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J | 4/9/2010

    " Pretty decent! Funny, lots of character to the book. (Note: not characterS. Character. Personality, if you will.) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica710 | 3/18/2010

    " well i didn't start the book yet but i think the first paragraph is interesting because the main character talks about what she wants alot & the thing i don't quiet get is that there's no flap jacket so i don't know what the book is about "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Whitney | 2/24/2010

    " Really good, read in a night YA. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 2/16/2010

    " I enjoyed this book because it was a different perspective than the normal teenage angsty book. It is the girl telling the story about the boy (because she is in his head, but not his body) I was little letdown by the end, but up until the very end, I did enjoy this book. "
