Recommended for: Young Adults

Sisters, Joy and Icka (Jessica) use to be very close. As a matter of fact, younger sister Joy once idolized Icka. But over the years things changed and so did the girls. It seems the women in their family inherited the gift (or curse, depending on how you look at it) of being able to hear people's thoughts or "whispers." Joy and her mother hear only the best from people while Icka hears the worse. Icka rebels and wants to whispers to go away so she uses drugs, piercings and alcohol to dull her senses. Joy is popular and sweet until her fifteenth birthday when her gift begins to magnify changing her life and the lives of her family forever.
If I could, I would give this book 3 1/2 stars. I enjoyed it but the brevity of the book (281 pages not the 320 mentioned in the description) at times made me feel as though it was incomplete. Not incomplete in the way of a possible sequel either. Also, as much as Phoebe Kitanidis portrays Joy as sweet and endearing. She often appears to be whiney and a doormat for others. I would recommend that you read the book. It just wasn't unforgettable.
