Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In a seemingly idyllic small town called Summer Falls, two teens wake up naked, entwined in each other’s arms, and neither one has any memory of who they are or how they got there. Chapters alternate between “Him” and “Her” as they try to piece together their pasts and find their identities. While Summer Falls is always a perfect 72 degrees and nothing bad ever seems to happen—at least, not that anyone remembers—only Elyse and Marshall see that something is very wrong. Ghosts of the town’s past inhabitants trigger “heatnaps” to erase bad memories on the spot, while sunny memories reveal a darker side in the form of an ancient power funneled through a charismatic ancestor of Elyse’s. Readers will respond to Elyse’s and Marshall’s character development as they search for themselves, each trying to reconcile the person they’re learning about with who they feel they are at the core. The decidedly sci-fi feel of this supernatural suspense story will appeal to a broad range of readers. Grades 9-12. --Heather Booth


“Both Elyse and Marshall are feisty and flawed, making for a satisfying and romantic action-adventure … perfect for a quick summer read. ” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Laced with magic and a touch of romance, and enhanced by a truly creepy setting, this is an intriguing mystery. Give this one to teens who want something other than the typical supernatural romance.” (School Library Journal)

“The decidedly sci-fi feel of this supernatural suspense story will appeal to a broad range of readers.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for WHISPER: “Common conflicts are nuanced by Kitanidis’s intriguing construction of Joy’s powers, unexpected plot moves, and strong characterizations.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for WHISPER: “Whisper is a refreshingly unpredictable story with the perfect balance of family and friends, and magical gifts and secrets. Phoebe Kitanidis is a strong new voice in the young adult, urban fantasy genre, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.” (Kim Harrison, bestselling author of ONCE DEAD, TWICE SHY)

Praise for WHISPER: “An imaginative tale that that brings to the surface the complexities of family, friends, relationships, and belonging, WHISPER also explore selfishness, selflessness, and the bonds that link us to each other.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
