Review: Whisper To Me by Nick Lake


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.

Purchase: Amazon ~ Kindle

This book is not what I thought it would be. Nothing like how I thought it would go at all. I feel like the synopsis doesn't really quite cover what the book is actually about. It's not about a boy through the entire book but a girl who hears a voice who lets her know she's a crappy person.

We find out that the voice is one of herself, her self disappointment. She's lost her mind because she thinks she's the reason her mother was dead. 

This book is more along the lines of a self-discovery story instead of a romance book that the synopsis leads you to believe. 

I didn't quite like this book. It had it's good parts, but it had mostly boring parts. There was only two characters I liked and one ended up dead, the other was hardly even seen in the book and he was kind of a pushover. 

I was upset with how this book ended too. Cliffhangers with no sequels are a different kind of demon. Authors who do this should be put in the corner for timeout.
