Thank you to Sourcebooks Fire for gifting me a beautiful paperback ARC of this book to read and share my review with others.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Jemma knows who the murderer is. She knows because he told her.
He thought his secret was safe because Jemma can’t speak or move.
But Jemma observes all kinds of things about everyone around her. His secret is just one of them.
And when a new technology means she may be able to communicate and reveal all she knows, Jemma no longer feels powerless in the face of this deadly secret. It’s a race against time before the killer acts again…or tries to stop her.
This book had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved Jemma’s character. She was brave, strong-willed, cared immensely for others, and was a lovable character in the novel. She was interesting and fun to read about, and had a great personality.
Jemma is a 16 year old girl with cerebral palsy, is in a wheelchair, and she cannot walk or talk. She and her siblings were adopted by their parents. Jemma has an aide who takes care of her in the home daily named Sarah, and Jemma is really close to her. Sarah thinks the world of Jemma, and Jemma feels the same about her. Often people say or do things around Jemma, taking advantage of the fact that she cannot speak, so they rely on the fact that Jemma cannot tell on them or speak of things she has witnessed or heard.
One day Sarah’s boyfriend Dan comes by the house to pick Sarah up for a date. He appears nice and sweet to everyone else, but Jemma knows the truth. She knows because one day he whispers in her ear unspeakable things, dark things – he whispers something bad that he did, knowing his secret is safe… or is it?
I loved this novel right through to the exciting end. Be sure to check this one out, I am sure you will love it as much as I did!
MY RATING: 5/5 stars
