There were a few things that got to me a bit in this book.
One thing I do wish the author would have gone into detail about is when she started cutting herself exactly. How did her and her friend start and why?
What was up with Casey? It was like she was a bit crazy in my opinion. She would be fine one minute, then the next be upset. I wonder if she knew the truth with Amber's family.
The way Amber treated her mom I can relate to that part because I have seen someone act that same way!
I loved reading how Amber's boyfriend was his safe haven, and I know how important it is for someone to have a safe haven when they are hurting themselves. This book really opened my eyes to what some teenagers do out their and it made me ask questions to the person close to me about the whole cutting scene. The way the darkness was described I could almost feel it myself in this book.
This is a hard topic for anyone to talk about as it deals with depression and the need to relive oneself from everything even for a few minutes to a day to a week.
RaeBeth hit the head of the nail on this book, and as I see there is a book 2 I am SOOOOOOOO GOING TO BUY IT.
Thank you again RaeBeth, for writing a book like this that brings something so sensitive to others and brings up the subject in a way that is not pushy for people to understand. You write it in a way that gets others aware of things like this happening.
The character building that happens in this book is terrific though the difficulty of the reading was a little below what I am use to. The book does show a few slow parts in the middle, but picks back up as Amber finds out more information about her situation with her parents.
This is a book that I would recommend to certain audiences, but not to everyone because it does tend to lean towards a certain audience such as young teens or people who have struggled with difficult situations in life who enjoy reading stories that are related to their own.
I was able to read through this book in less than a week, but I also lend this to the book keeping me intrigued about Amber and her friends. I also purchased the second book in order to follow through her next adventure.
"I stop talking and head out of her office. I trudge to my room crying. The pain's flowing generously right through my body. It's attacking my delicate heart that tries so hard to be strong." -From Silenced by Raebeth McGee-Buda
If I had but one negative comment it would be that I had trouble knowing who was talking or texting within the dialog. But this could just be that she uses a more modern approach to dialog than I am used to.
All and all, I think this book deserves a 5 star rating and should be read by all. The ending is fantastic and I look forward to reading the next volume.
-Dennis Higgins, Author
I really loved the main character, Amber. She was a strong lead and she was a really down to earth, real person. Her life problems were real things and it wasn't overpowering, which is great because it was believable. I also loved Landon. I really need a man like that in my life. He makes my heart melt. Ladies, trust me, you will be in love. Romance isn't dead!! He was a wonderful compliment to Amber and he always made me smile. As for Casey, I wasn't a huge fan of hers because she reminded me of a friend I use to have and that brings back bad memories. She wasn't the nicest person and as things progress, I disliked her more and more. However, she was a great character for the storyline and she makes the progression make perfect sense.
Overall, I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 for a real and emotional storyline, great main characters with perfect side characters, and an awesome cliff hanging ending. Raebeth, you rock and I can't wait for book 2!!
