start, but after that it picked up Due to something that happened something we slowly find out page by page our main character doesn t speak, won t make a sound The whole not speaking and the guilt was done so perfectly I just felt so sad for the poor girl No one should have had something like this happening to them, no one should carry so much guilt and worry I had my suspicions on what happened, and also on what really happened, but the end still took me by surprise and I really enjoyed it.The main girl was interesting I really liked that her no speaking was a real thing to her Nowhere, not even when alone, did she speak or make a sound But with the coming of a new girl, you see her loosen up, you see her lose a bit of her fear, she is slowly coming to terms with what happened She has finally found someone she feels that she can trust And I really loved how they grew to each other.Jasmine was just wonderful I loved her, and how instead of demanding our main girl to speak, she just spoke to her Kept chattering, kept our main girl nearby.I was so sorry for her with all that happened to her No one deserves that.The love between the girls, the confusion of our main character it was all written realistically and I really was intrigued and wanted to know how this would go on.The ending was fantastic, it had a lot of twists and turns, some revelations and most importantly something that our main character has been searching for I would recommend this book to everyone Looking for a realistic book A book with LGBT themes, with themes about sorrow and death, about bullying Then try this one out Review first posted at YAY BOOKS ABOUT GAY RELATIONSHIPS 3I picked this book up on a total whim, based on an audible recommendation I had no background knowledge on it, but I figured I d just go for it I m glad I did I definitely think that the first half was better than the second, and I think the thriller aspect was disorienting it came out of nowhere, and didn t feel as though it had been interwoven into the first half of the book This particular sentence won t matter to you if you haven t read the book, but I would have liked to see of Jasmine s feelings towards Megan because the relationship felt very one sided.Btw, if you re looking for an audiobook, I definitely recommend this Very well narrated This is a fantastic and powerful novel Highly recommended It really got me both thinking and feeling.This book moved me emotionally in so many ways, it s powerful in the most subtle of ways at times, other moments it hits you with a sledgehammer, no holds barred, I was so immersed in this wonderful novel I hardly realised I had finished it Beautiful, just beautiful.What s the book about Megan doesn t speak She hasn t spoken in months.Pushing away the people she cares about is just a small price to pay Because there are things locked inside Megan s head things that are screaming to be heard that she cannot, must not, let out.Then Jasmine starts at school bubbly, beautiful, talkative Jasmine And for reasons Megan can t quite understand, life starts to look a bit brighter.Megan would love to speak again, and it seems like Jasmine might be the answer But if she finds her voice, will she lose everything else My Review So, we know that Megan does not speak, she is selectively mute but what s fascinating is how the book moves along gradually to reveal the reason WHY she is now mute, she was not always, and it s powerful stuff This is deep stuff going on for this young teenage girl and you really want to know all the reasons why she is as she is Megan essentially is now an outsider, teased and ridiculed by the tough girl at school and her minions She has her friend Luke, she s been friends with him for a long time, but for a while that is all she has, she is locked in her silent world, she does not even communicate at home, except by writing notes to her not so perfect Mother that she lives with.Along comes Jasmine, the new girl at school and much to everyone s shock, Jasmine gravitates to Megan and befriends her We get to hear Jasmin s confident bubbly conversations to Megan and we get to hear Megan s answers back in her head, it makes for interesting reading This book surprised me with where it went, we started delving into the events surrounding Megan being unable to speak and the trauma of it all combined with the intense relationship dynamics between Megan and Jasmine and the journey they go on together, it just literally blew me away I had a moment reading this book where I yelled YES really loudly it scared my cats , you might have the same moment too, but I can t tell all it s secrets If you like young adult fiction that is suitable and enjoyable and realistic for the mature reader you will love this book I found it to be so many things, nothing less than powerful and moving and poignant and shocking at times Subtle secrets, lies, guilt and the power of love and friendship are all through this book You will want to stick with it to the end It s a beautiful and sometimes surprising journey I so want to share with you all about this book but it would spoil it I loved it, everything worked for me the characters were tangible and flawed beautifully, the plot was good, the reveals are outstanding and it s very well written This one will be a favourite of mine for a long time I received a copy of this book via the publisher thanks to NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. What a pain in the ass this book was.Una completa tortura fue el leer este libro Tan bonita la portada y la premisa, tan bonito todo se ve a Pero result en el t pico fracaso YA, con personajes estereotipados, situaciones clich , y una escritura que incita al aburrimiento Estoy orgullosa de haberlo terminado Unspeakable sigue a Megan, una adolescente que perdi las ganas de hablar despu s de un accidente en el que muri su mejor amiga blah blah blah Hasta all todo bien, pero luego conocemos a la protagonista Megan es el cl sico personaje con poca autoestima, t mido y pasivo, a quien todos le hacen bullying. Ella no ha dicho una palabra a nadie desde el accidente, hasta que llega Jasmine, la chica nueva Lo de chica nueva es lo mejor que hay para describir al personaje Seriously. Ella defiende ocasionalmente a Megan del grupo de chicas populares que la convierten diariamente en el objeto de sus crueles bromas Ah, y ella, al contrario de Megan, habla Mucho Un radio encendido fue esta chica durante todo el libro Entiendo la necesidad de compensar la falta de palabras por parte de Megan, pero fue demasiado que le dieran tanto di logo a su amiga e inter s amoroso Aguante el sarcasmo The last person I went clothes shopping with was Hana, and she only went to trendy, independent shops, definitely no chains I never had as much cash as her, so I d be left sitting outside the changing room while she tried on outfit after outfit. Poor you Mencion algo sobre los cambios de humor de MeganWell You coming or what Yeah All right Jasmine raises her voice, though she must know I can hear everything Be back in a bit, Megan Don t bother You d obviously rather spend time with your idiot boyfriend than meSu novio tiene abdominales de acero incluso cuando es un vago bueno para nada Por supuesto que se ir con l, duhHow could I think she had feelings for me How could I be so stupidSilly of you Pone Not in that way de Sam Smith scrunch Jasmine s sleeping bag in my fists Her scent wafts up from it I let out a strangled scream and claw at the material, pulling and twisting until a rip opens in the lining. C lmate, mujer The others are looking at me Go on, Jasmine whispers I don t want to embarrass her, so I drink. What an idiot I pause to look out of the window on the upstairs landing, wondering if there are any people arriving And then I see Jasmine She s on the pavement outside, talking to Owen I can t believe her She s abandoned me for him again How could sheJasmine is lost in Owen It s like she s forgotten I m even here OK, she breathes She wrenches herself away to look at me You ll be all right She tries to make it sound like a question, though we both know it s of a statement I nod, then turn and stride away I can t believe her One minute she s all worried about me, then she dumps me the second someone interesting comes along She s just like Hana. Again La particularidad de este libro es que es un romance F F O sea, entre dos chicas No hab a le do nada parecido antes, as que ten a altas expectativas La historia de amor No creo que pueda haber sido m s aburrida Le falt chispa Le falt emoci n Le falt todo Ambas chicas me hac an querer dormir y, aunque una de ellas hablaba hasta por los codos, ninguna supo inyectarle ese toque especial que busco en una Romance YA.Lo nico que por lo menos me mantuvo leyendo el libro fue el querer conocer qu hab a sucedido realmente en el accidente de Hana Megan se culpaba por ello Incluso ten a una pat tica voz que le dec a cosas comoYou re a murdereryYou re a cowardEso a adido a sus otras inseguridades no hac an las cosas mejores para ella Ni para m Fue bastante f cil descubrir qu hab a ocurrido en tal accidente Demasiado f cil Y pat ticoCu ntas veces he le do la historia en la que un personaje se culpa por algo para que luego venga el amor a resolver todas sus inseguridades y a liberarlo de su culpaPiensa Saca la lista CLICH EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPueden dejar de reciclar las mismas ideas y ponerse a crear algo NUEVOEn conclusi n, Unspeakable no est a la altura de su hermosa portada Una historia poco memorable, con la t pica Queen Bully de la secundaria, la fea y freak , el bomb n asesino, y el personaje que cambia todas las cosas gracias al amor Todo esto envuelto en la prosa de Rushton Una completa p rdida de mi tiempo.
