A WHISPER TO A SCREAM By Lauren Hammond
Ellory Graham detested high school. She relished the fact that she was a rebel. A wild, carefree, type of girl. She basked in the glory of being the type of girl who stood up to authority. Unfortunately for her, her upfront, honest and bitchy nature always managed to land her in some kind of trouble.
Adam Jacobs was everything Ellory was not. Not only was he beautiful, but he was smart, artistic, and sweet. To almost every girl he seemed like the total package- that all around perfect guy. But in a town were nothing particularly interesting happens, and gossip seems like the only fun thing to do, sometimes those perfections become flaws. And it doesn’t take long for Ellory to find out, even Adam has secrets.
But Adam’s secrets, are the kind of secrets people die for...
Lauren has done it once again! I enjoyed reading this book on my Kindle. It's definitely one where you come to care about the characters to the point of feeling like they're real. Just a phone call away.
I can't say too much about the young adult piece, A Whisper to a Scream without giving anything away. It starts off strong, hooking you in immediately. It will keep your eyes moving right to the very end to see what in the world is going to happen. You will say repeatedly, how will this end?
I will say this. There are a lot of twists and turns and the end is not going to be what you expect. I know some who wanted the story to go in a different direction, myself included, but it gives you closure. There's no hanging by a thread ending here. It's clean cut and to the point.
