    More like 2 1/2 stars

    I like the beginning of the book and I like how the villain was someone you didn't see coming. I would say I enjoyed this book up till about 65% of the way through, but then things started to get a bit too confusing. I would have liked a little less jumping from one hing right to a total, opposite other. I did feel like the author did a great job building all the characters, I love each one of them... BUT... This author did the one thing that really turns me off of a book, completely change everything about a characters personality. that is that after the main girl does... Well I won't give any spoilers but needless to say, after the climax of the situation, the main guy's personality and behavior did a total 180 in the blink of an eye. It was like he was an entirely different character and I hated how he was. I get what she was going for but it was very poorly executed. I am not sure if I will read the next book because right now I am at a point where I don't care to see how it turns out.
    I wouldn't say don't read this book, but just be prepared for the flaws of an otherwise decent ya novel.

    I wanted to like this book, I really did. The only reason I am giving it 2 stars is because the story was passable otherwise it would be a 1 star.
    The story is convoluted, to say the least, and out of a 373-page book, you don't find out until around page 250 what the secret is.
    The writing is terrible! I spent so much time rereading the book in hopes of figuring out what the author was trying to say, it was extremely frustrating!
    I offer the following sentence:
    “I’ve had guys I thought were my friends turn out not to be after their real friends decided I wasn’t so great after all,”
    A big letdown.

    Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan was just one of those books that

    Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan was just one of those books that I didn't know what happened to. It started out great! This book is actually the first book I read by Sarah Rees Brennan, and I immediately fell in love with her writing. She has this way of getting the reader addicted to her style of writing, and even though this looked like a creepy book to me, it was actually very funny. The main protagonist, Kami, is the school's journalist. Living in Sorry-in-the-Vale, the Lynburns have a suspicious and famous reputation. When Kami knows that the Lynburn boys are back in town, she's determined to squeeze all the information about the Lynburns from them.
    For me, the story was interesting. Kami was fun, and the though of her actually meeting the guy she has been talking to through her head for all her life. It was a very refreshing idea to read about. A person you have been talking to through your head, like an imaginary friend, who suddenly appears as a real person in your life. The characters were funny to read about, and I liked most of the characters. Despite everything being funny and okay, there was something that bored me! I felt like the story dragged on and on and on, and that bored the hell out of me! I felt like nothing progressed, and everything went in a slow pace. I really enjoyed the beginning of the story, and you don't know how much I wanted to enjoy this book more than I did.
    Big kudos for Sarah Rees Brennan. Her writing is beautiful and funny, and full of sarcasm, which is something I definitely enjoy in books. I know a lot of people loved this book, and I kind of feel mad at myself for not liking this. Anyways, I know this book would be loved by many people so I'll definitely recommend it to all young adult readers. Im just going to say, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
