Whisper to Me by Nick Lake: Review and Giveaway!

Thursday, May 5, 2016



ABOUT WHISPER TO ME:
Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together. Why she disappears some nights. Why she won’t let herself remember what happened that long-ago night on the boardwalk. Why she fell apart so completely.

Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love—love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself—can save you after all.





I can't imagine hearing voices in my head. I also can't imagine listening to them, but I'm sure that's easier said than done. The novel is very long and I read it in pieces. I felt horrible for Cassie.  I do wish she was a little more present in the novel though. I thought it was interesting that swear words (I think) were asterisked out. Cassie is writing quite literally a novel to her ex-love interest. She wants him to understand why events occurred the way they did between them. 

Cassie's character was sympathetic to a point. She was a little too different for me to blanket say I liked her, but she did have her good points. The boy Cassie is writing to is referenced as "you" which gives the novel a personal feel. She hopes he forgives her and will consent to meeting in person. This book is very character driven. I think the reader will be rooting for Cassie as much as I was. Her father wasn't super helpful because of his own problems stemming from the military.  She fought most of her battles on her own. This book is for young adult/teen readers.

4 Stars
