Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (The Lynburn Legacy #1)
Published September 11th 2012 by Random House Books for Young Readers
Goodreads Summary: Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.
But all that changes when the Lynburns return.
The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?
Review: I received this book from my awesome #OTSPSecretSister. She thought that I would like it, and I really did! The main character, Kami, was a strong willed girl living in a strange little town in England. Her relationship with Jared was completely fascinating and there were just so many feels! Especially when you get to the big twist at the end! There was so much about this book to like for anyone. Mystery, witchcraft, small town strangeness, hints of the occult. I am definitely glad my secret sister sent this to me and even more glad that I found books 2&3 on Book Outlet the other day! I can’t wait to dive back in and see what happens with Kami and Jared.
