Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (ADVANCED REVIEW)

REVIEW COPY: Advanced Reader Copy provided by publisher (Netgalley)

Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?
Every once in a while you read a book you find yourself gushing over. Unspoken is one of these books. I LOVED this book. I loved every character, I loved the dialogue and I loved the story. Really, I just loved this book.  Kami is a great character and her interactions with Jared, Angela and the rest of the characters were sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant and always enjoyable.  

I don’t really want to say too much about Unspoken because it has a lot of twists and surprises that add to the story. It’s really more fun to discover things with Kami than to know them ahead of time. The book description gives you all you really need to know.

I know this is a ridiculously short review, but honestly, this book was awesome and you should read it.
