This book had me very frustrated at times. The reasoning behind Oakley's silence becomes very clear early on in this book. Once I realized what had caused her silence I found myself just wishing she would just talk! The romance is quite much for a 15 year old girl, and the language is quite drastic for a Young Adult novel. When I put my opinions aside, this book was overall a good read. I read this book quite quickly, and the ending made me want to read the next book. I gave this book *3.5 stars. It was not my most favorite book, but I still enjoyed it. I read this book in e-book format and there were quite a few typos. This I found kind of frustrating, Without the language, the over the top romance, and typos I would have given this book *4 stars. Eventually I will read the next book Broken Silence but it's not at the top of my TBR.
