Outspoken is the first book I've won from a Goodreads contest! So, I was super excited about that. Penny sounded like someone I could relate to, and she definitely was. I loved this book. I loved that it was set in a small beach town in South Carolina. I loved the love story. I wish I had the guts to be Penny. Her relationship with Archer is goals, and I loved how basically every character in the book we were introduced to, we got to know. She clicked with most of the people and they all became a part of her story. I found myself wishing, though, especially in the beginning, for more dialogue. The book was beautifully written, but I felt some places could be expanded upon. I really didn't want the book to end! Overall, this is an absolutely great read. I'd love to read more from Lora Richardson.

3.5 Stars - Original review at 125Pages Outspoken is a cute fast NA read. Is it life changing and super powerful? No, but I don’t need every book I read to be. Sometimes I just want to read a nice story and this was one of those. World building was well done, pacing was solid and the characters were developed well. The sidekicks were particularly well done and provided some nice comic and emotional support. The love interest was the required dreamy and deep. The family was pushy yet caring and I enjoyed that they weren’t the typical YA neglectful family. They were overly caring and clingy and that was a nice change. Outspoken was chock full of YA/NA clichés. Friends are made instantly even though main character does not want friends and wants to be broody loner. Love interest is right there and super perfect. Job and living situation instantly work out. However that being said, none of that brought the story down. Clichés are not instantly bad, they are consistently used because they work, and in this book they work. The addition of Penny’s grandfathers decent into Alzheimer’s was especially poignant and well written and not something usually found in YA/NA. I also did really like the main character Penny and her motivation. She was on a mission to reinvent herself and be true to her feelings and I liked that. Outspoken is Lora Richardson’s debut novel and I feel it was overall a success. I can see great things coming from Richardson in the future with some polish and growth. I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
