The whispers in the night start when Fox Monroe is just six years old.

They wake him up in the dark, leaving him confused and a little scared. Is it Papa and Daddy talking? From his bedroom in his family's Greenwich Village apartment, he can't quite tell if it's his two fathers talking-or someone else.

I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

This book was excellent, yet heartbreaking. I was often reminded of the Sally Sparrow quote that "[sad is] happy for deep people." This book was filled with unfortunate events and circumstances, with a mini message on climate change thrown in there, yet I couldn't put it down. Fox had it rough. He was dealing with all kinds of crap and didn't have anyone to turn to. Frankly, I am surprised he turned ou

I think that the mark of a good novel is that it leaves the reader with the desire for a sequel, to find out what happens next to the characters or in the plot. This book certainly fulfilled that mark for me.
The main character, Fox Monroe, is followed from age 6 to adulthood. The author is able to realistically reflect Fox's age and maturation through the dialogue and narration. He can "hear" other people's thoughts and sense their feelings; he struggles to understand his special abilities and

Not my cup of tea, I just finished and I can appreciate the story line and the subject matter however it didn't click with me the way other books do, it seemed a bit jumpy at parts and while giving great details at some parts, lacking in others.
I feel that this book could have been told better if more details had been added or if the author would have focused more on certain parts of Fox's life.
I myself am writing a story that takes place over a large period of time but the story is not told in

I won this book off of Goodreads. It is a pretty well written book. I really enjoyed the beginning of the book, but as I read more I didn't really want to finish. There is something missing that could have made the book even better. You do get attached to the characters, but the attachment to Fox tampers off. I wish there was more conflict with the dark shadow or a more of a background story on the shadow.

Whispers in the Night is a thought provoking novel that follows a boy with psychic powers from youth through adulthood. It makes you wonder if being able to read your neighbors' minds would be advantageous after all. Aside from the well-drawn plot, the story also addresses deeper issues such as families with homosexual parents, incest, and rape. This is fiction at its best. Definitely worth the read.

This is a great story but very superficially written. There is little character or scene development, no chance to feel connected to the story or characters, even the main character. The idea and the story line are so good it really is a shame. I'd love to see it done again with some meat on its bones.

The story seemed like it could be very good, but it ended up lacking something. It seems to me a lot more like a stream of consciousness than a story. The story doesn't have an engaging conflict most of the time, and even when it does the conflict only lasts a couple of pages. Because of that, I never really felt like I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

A terrific read from beginning to end--nuanced characters, great locations, emotional engagement. I'm not always a fan of fantasy or science fiction, but the author created a seamless world that always felt so real that I was pulled right into it.
