the eclectic authoress recommends...

50. Unspoken, by Sarah Rees Brennan

Image result for unspoken sarah rees brennanUnspoken is the first in the Lynburn Legacy trilogy, followed by Untold and Unmade. It's about the secrets of a sleepy English town, the tropes of Gothic novels, a teen investigative reporter, and two people who can talk to each other in their heads. The characters are funny and fully developed, and I fell in love with each and every one of them (except for the one or two I hate). The relationship between Kami, the protagonist, and Jared, the boy in her head, is agonizing and beautiful. I would recommend Unspoken to anyone, anywhere, without hesitated-- it is storytelling as its finest, with themes pulled from long-ago novels slipping naturally into the present time.
