2012 book 79

Sarah Rees Brennan's Unspoken
When I started this book, I was enjoying it so much that I had to keep putting in down for fear it would stop being awesome (it mostly didn't). It's about a girl, Kami, an intrepid journalist who's heard a boy's voice in her head for as long as she can remember, and what happens when the mysterious family that basically owns the town comes back--and she finds out that the boy is real, and the family has some secrets that need to be uncovered. Also there are some increasingly grotesque crimes that need to be solved. It's kind of a lot for a girl to handle, but luckily she has some pretty great friends to help (Angela and Holly 4-eva). I really liked the dialogue a lot, especially Kami's, though it does feel a bit artificial--but it was just snarky enough to work. Mysteries were revealed in a more-or-less timely manner, and the end COMPLETELY BROKE MY HEART. You moron teenagers! Stop being morons! ARG. When does the sequel come out? A-.

An e-galley was provided by the publisher. This book will be out in September.
