She was known to be a gossiper and prattler. I also really loved the supporting characters in this novel. The Goddess Legacy Aimee Carter. The story revolves around a high school student named Chelsea Knot, harrinvton would be aptly considered an “it” girl at her school – very popular, very chatty, engaged in the latest juicy gossip.

The secondary characters that emerged in this story I hugely adored, Asha, Sam and even Andy against their better judgement were there when needed.

But that same manner of speaking is what added to Chelsea’s realism as a young adult. Readers might see Noah as misunderstood, but maybe not Chelsea. All because Chelsea speechlrss kee Well, the book I’m reviewing today was certainly an odd little chestnut! Hagrington there was quite a bit left to be to speechlews One of my absolute favorite books last year was Some Girls Speechoessso this had a lot to be compared toI still found that it was exactly the type of book I love to read.

Until one day when her thoughtless behaviour nearly gets someone killed harringtno she decides to take a vow of silence to find back to her old self again. They see other girls around them and in magazines and say I’m not as pretty. She witnesses something she is not meant to see, and runs her mouth about it. I really just loved this book. Since speechlexs plays a major part in this novel, let’s take a break to look at that.


This brilliant little book. What irked me a bit in that area, though, were Chelsea’s parents – after what her daughter went through they were so concerned about her decision to take a vow of silence, would they really not care when she stayed out late every night without telling them where she was?

Still, I couldn’t help but love the guys who took Chelsea in and helped her through the hard times she was getting at school. I requested this on NetGalley and as fate would have it, I got approved.

Chelsea really, truly starts to change for the better as the book goes on. And Speechless gives you, as a reader, a look at what can happen when you show courage and stand up for what’s right instead of giving into hate. Which would’ve been fine, if it were a memoir. Running my mouth has hurt enough people already. Thank you to the wonderful people at Harlequin Teen Australia for my review copy.

I find it difficult to forgive the vapid, high school popularity-obsessed moron I had to harriington to read for the first one hundred or so pages.

He’s bitingly sarcastic to start off with, but grows to forgive Chelsea after she starts working in the diner with him. If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done.

My absolute favorite book last year was Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers, and literally nothing has compared since. It’s about growing within yourself.

Conveying a sound message for adults as well as teens, Speechless touches on several social topics that a lot of people can relate to, and learn from. Hell, even if it’s not a secret she revels in being the first to know and passing it on.

Though I would have liked to see harrintton more of Dex and Lou! For I don’t really have anything essay-like uannah say. Sam is the greatest, and they become an item. I don’t know if I loved her but I must say that her PoV was refreshing. She’s one of those girls. And I more than enjoyed this book. I’ll be honest, I didn’t like it as much as Saving June and that is the reason why I cannot give it 5 stars.

And let me just take a moment speechlese say, that I’m so happy I took the chance and requested this on NetGalley. I believe that this is a book that everyone would benefit from reading. If you like seeing growth in your characters at a believable pace and manner, you cannot go wrong with Chelsea Knott.

Noah and her love story is more slow and thought-through than Chelsea’s previous actions. How does Asha feel when racial jokes are thrown at her spechless Some people might find Chelsea off-putting but the pay off is in getting to know her and how she deals with not talking and by the end of the book I was her biggest fan.

Pushing the Limits Katie Mcgarry. Such things always leave a bad taste in my mouth.

As I said in the outset, Chelsea is not a likable character. When she comes back to school after winter break, none of her friends will speak to hahnah, and when they do, its nasty things. Chelsea knows her mouth got her in trouble, so her solution?
