Lora @Flannery - I am a terrible friend! If you want to delete me from your friend list, I understand. I know we were supposed to read this together, but the other night I tried the first chapter and that led to another and another . . . I'm so sorry:(

Flannery Hahaha, I just signed in and this was at the top of my feed. No big deal, Lora. It came in at the library so I'll probably read it this week. I'm glad you loved it! It makes me more excited.

I'm glad there's no harsh feelings. ;) And I hope you like it also.

We should pick something else to read together sometime, though.

Cara This is the second great review I've read of this book. It's gonna have to move up on my to-read list now!

Lora Oh Kate! Please just try it sometime. Ignore the cover and get it from your library, then read the first couple chapters and see if it sucks you in like it did me. :)

message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

worry not, Lora. I've heard a lot of good things about this book. I intend to give it a try someday. I love the title :)

message 11: by Lora (new)

Lora Great! The title fits one of the main characters perfectly. And it is a great title.

~Tina~ and the boy without the blessing of sound stole my heart.

Beautifully said. I've read this book a long time ago, but I'll never forget Raven:) Great review!

awesome, another person who loved this book. This hasn't been getting that much recognition over the past 12 years, and I'm glad someone else loved it as much as me:) Great review, Lora.

message 14: by Arlene (new)

message 16: by kari (new)

kari Great review. This good is a hidden gem. I loved it and your review perfectly captured what's so good about it.

message 17: by Lora (new)

Lora Well thank you, kari. I've not come across many hidden gems, but this is definitely one of the few.

message 18: by kari (new)

kari I know you understood my comment, but it should read "this BOOK is a hidden gem" before anyone comes along and tell me that I make no sense I'll just point it out myself ☺

message 19: by Lora (new)

Lora Oh! kari, I didn't even notice that! :)

message 20: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa after reading your review and Tatiana's, I'm enthusiastic to get this book from the library ASAP. without Goodreads, I don't think I would ever discover books like this, which is a shame. And it's an Aussie YA as well. Bonus.

message 21: by Lora (new)

Lora Definitely a bonus that's it's an Aussie book. ;) Hope you like it!

message 22: by Sandy (new)

Sandy Just got it from the lib. Thanks for the recommendation!

message 23: by Lora (new)

Lora Great, Sandy! I hope you like it:)

message 24: by Limonessa (new)

Limonessa This sounds really interesting Lora and if it weren't for your review I wouldn't have noticed it. Thank you!

Lora That's why I'm on this website, to help spread the word about books I love/underappreciated books. Hope you enjoy it when you read it, Lisa. :)

message 26: by Nomes (new)

Nomes ahh, your review for this book makes me all nostalgic. it is a very fab book, and sadly prob doesn't have much recognition outside of NZ/Au :/

(not that i have ever reviewed it to help that out ... O.o)

x Nomes

message 27: by Lora (new)

Lora Aww, Nomes, I didn't mean to induce nostalgia! I figured as much. I don't think all Americans have yet realized that Aussie lit is the best. ;)
