I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?


What I Didn't Say

What I Didn't Say - Keary Taylor Boy, I've been reading some tear jerkers lately. What I Didn't Say inspired me, gave me hope, made me sad and taught me/reminded me of many lessons. How does one go on after something so tragic and irreversible occurs and when the only consolation is-at least you didn't die? I wanted to be a part of that community. I was jealous of the love and consideration they had for one another. It's rare these days to see that, anywhere. Ms. Taylor did an awesome job showing how awkward it was for Jake's friends to deal with him being mute. They tried very hard to treat him the same and to make him comfortable but it was difficult for all involved. And just when Jake believes that life has dealt him the cruelest of hands he discovers that he's not the only one struggling with life's cruel fate.Samantha, what can I say? She's awesome, smart, determined, empathetic, compassionate and a great friend. I loved her character. With this story it doesn't matter that it's a YA novel. It's simply a GOOD story. Everyone can learn and relate. I don't want to give too much away.....All I can say is that this is a book to pick up and not pass over. I would like to thank Netgalley and Keary Taylor for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.I
