All the Things We Never Said is freaking amazing.

This book has multiple POVs and I find it very interesting because I really like books with multiple POVs.

This book is about three girls who are dealing with depression and anxiety. Life seems too much for them. Especially Mehreen. She’s the main focus in this book, I suppose.

Mehreen is sixteen years old. She has depression and anxiety that taken over her life. One day, she signed up for the suicide website called MementoMori, a website that mat

"Anxiety and depression are illnesses, right? Not everyone accepts that, but it's scientifically correct. So anxiety is making you feel like this and depression is making you want to do this. The thing with mental illness is that it dominates your mind, pushes out everything that was originally there. So you could argue that it's not you making this decision, it's the anxiety and depression. Or your 'Chaos'."

This is an exciting YA contemporary dealing with very heavy topics and focusing on Friendship. The story is about 3 girls who join a website that pairs them together for a suicide pact but while going through the assigned tasks they form a strong friendship that makes them want to keep living. Only the website won't let them back out.

It's an interesting concept and all three girls personalities were so different and yet worked well as they grew together. It's also super diverse. Mehreen, arguab

All The Things We Never Said brings readers inside the mind of three girls:
Mehreen- an Asian girl who lives with her traditional Muslim family. She has a gentle soul and is very kind towards all she meets. The only person she isn’t kind to is herself. She deals with anxiety and depression, she calls it Chaos. The second voice in her mind is known to her as Chaos.

*I received a copy via the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book.*

This is not a spoiler-free review. Content warning: Suicide (suicidal thoughts, discussion of ways to die by suicide, including two on the page attempts), sexual assault (implied and attempted rape on the page). More to be added…

Three different teenage girls join a website (MementoMori.com) that matches people and allocates them a shared date where they

Yasmin Rahman was one of the many contributors to the YA BAME anthology A Change Is Gonna Come, and now she's back with her debut novel.

All The Things We Never Said follows three girls: Mehreen (a muslim girl with depression and anxiety), Olivia (a victim of sexual abuse), and Cara (a wheelchair user as a result of a car accident). I loved the variety of the protagonists because it kept all of their story lines interesting and none of them felt the same. Yasmin Rahman said that it was important

This book was very heavy yet so positive and optimistic. For me, as someone who's still clueless about mental illness but definitely wanting to know more about it and help those in desperate need of help. It was like going through a first on hand experience of three girls who are going through so much in their young lives. This is a story about survival, courage and a bonding of friendships that may just last for a lifetime.

At first, without thinking too much about it, I really thought that the

Thank you to Hot Key Books and Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I first read Yasmin’s short story in A Change is Gonna Come and really loved it so I was really looking forward to reading her debut book. So I knew as soon as I heard about this book that I would love it and it did not disappoint!

This book had me sobbing by the end of the first chapter. I had never read a story where the mental health rep so completely accurate to mine and reading it felt like I had finally b

You guys. This was one of my most anticipated reads for this year so I was OVER THE MOON when I got the e-mail saying I could read an ARC!

This book is absolutely amazing, honestly. I love Mehreen and it kills me that there aren't more desi characters struggling with mental health. I think Yasmin beautifully depicts the struggles of someone who is not only desi but only suffers from anxiety and depression. I wish, that when I was a teen, I had read this book be

Ever since reading Yasmin’s short story in A Change Is Gonna Come in 2017, I knew straight away that her first full debut novel was going to be one of my new favourites, no matter what. All The Things We Never Said is such a raw, heart breaking and emotional read. It’s hard to read at times, especially if you suffer from any of the issues that the main characters suffer with. But it is just such an important read. I can’t remember the last time I read a book that tackled so many issues yet still ...more

Wow, this year is truly a good year for diverse and mental health young adult books! First, The Weight of Our Sky by Hanna Alkaf is truly a masterpiece, and then comes All The Things We Never Said, this indeed blows my mind!

Why am I saying that this book is a masterpiece? This book revolves around three awesome and relatable characters who share their own journey on fighting their mental health issues until their destiny intertwines by a website, they finally meet with each other. We don't alway

All The Things We Never Said is freaking fantastic - do yourselves a favour and add it to your tbr NOWWWW!

This debut novel is an absolute triumph in voice and style - each of the 3 POV characters are so fully realized, you will feel like you've known them your entire life and will not want to let them go.

The chapters of one character (Olivia) are written in verse and the author does an incredible job with it - even though these chapters are probably shorter than the others, I found I read them

Finally, a multiple POV book where every character feels like the leading lady. Three distinct and beautifully-drawn characters to fall in love with.

Although the subject of this book is dark (suicide), Rahman tells it sensitively and realistically from three perspectives. The writing is beautiful. Rahman is a writer to watch.

I devoured this book in a day. It had me laughing, crying and wishing for more.

FULL REVIEW ON: https://wordsunfilteredbys.wordpress....

When I first started reading this book, the author’s note instantly made me realise that I would end up relating to not just the characters, but the writer as well. It was comforting to realise that there are other Bangladeshi, Muslim women who have experienced both depression and anxiety, and that I wasn’t alone in this.

Chapter one’s opening genuinely brought a smile to my face. It was the first time I’d seen a book wholeheartedly embrace

This was an incredible debut centred around what I believe to be an entirely original concept, with the suicide pact app Mementomori following three unforgettable characters. A emotional read portraying mental health, finding friendship under difficult circumstances and speaking up about your own struggles that I would highly recommend.

OK...I never know quite what to say when writing reviews. Especially for a book as important as this. In short, I loved it. Books about mental health are so few and far between that when one so accurately portraying the 'Chaos' of it comes along, and brings to the table fantastic characterisation and writing, it's a truly special thing. Basically, go read it yeah? All the Things We Never Said is definitely a book I wish I'd read when I was 16 and struggling.

Really loved this book!!! Knew I’d enjoy this book but didn’t think I would completely and utterly fall in love with this YA book! Such a powerful book and what a great friendship between the three main characters. Think it shows a lot of love and compassion - think lots of young people should definitely read this!
The narrators were fab too! Didn’t want to stop listening!

Hope these characters are revisited again in another book!

A difficult and emotional read dealing with suicide, grief , loss, mental health but also about finding friendship. Can be dark as the subjects suggest and heartbreaking, if you suffer from any of the above then these are the main trigger warnings and I’d suggest caution as it hits you from the very beginning, a powerful, thought provoking and insightful read.

Insightful, quite powerful, a bit ominous (the suicide website thing) I found myself captivated without realizing. I believe the author deals with the subject matter quite well, overcoming the pitfalls of melodrama and stigma, to deliver a meaningful look into mental health conditions and the loneliness that accompanies them.

Even though there are 3 different POVs of girls with or/and anxiety, who want to kill themselves, hope still manages to worm into each one. Hope out of unexpected friendship

Good concept, not fond of the execution.
It takes more than a revelation, a couple of talks with someone, two people, to take away the Chaos in your mind and life.

A realistic take on issues that many still find taboo to talk about or understand - Please do not be afraid to speak up even if you don't think other people will believe you.
