Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Release Date: September 2012
Summary: Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head. But all that changes when the Lynburns return. The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?
Notes: Supernatural. (I categorize things more specifically… I don’t consider things like vampires and witches paranormal (which this book is not about)… they are supernatural. Paranormal to me are unexplained circumstances and abilities). The romance was a bit strange… not really it but kinda is. Romance is light. The themes of having someone in your head is touch upon better than expected.
If you liked Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia (in which I believe the character of this book is named after) and Margaret Stohl, you may enjoy this one.
