A Middle Grade Reader Exploring Young Adult Fiction

My name is Layla and I’m one of L.B Anne’s interns for her summer internship! As homework, I’ve been given the opportunity to blog about one of my favorite books. So, I’ll be discussing The Secret Language of Sisters, by Luanne Rice.

There are many reasons why I enjoyed this book so much, which include:

1. It explores the relationship and love between sisters.

2. It touches on the dynamics of being a teen in today’s world.

3. It is packed with drama, suspense, and a few surprises. I will give you a glimpse below.

As promised, here is a brief synopsis:

When Roo responds to a text while driving, she, unfortunately, gets into a horrible accident and ends up in the hospital. Everyone thinks that she is in a coma, but instead, she has a rare syndrome. She can still hear and see but can’t move or speak at all. She’s trapped in her body, screaming to be heard. Tilly, Roo’s sister, has begun to grow feelings for Roo’s boyfriend. It’s up to Tilly to discover her sister’s condition. Will they both be able to heal?

Since I am ten, I am just starting to explore the world of Young Adult Fiction. I will be hard-pressed to find a YAF novel I love as much as this one. This story had me heartbroken and stuck with me long after I turned the last page. I love how it shares both Tilly and Roo’s points of view.

I recommend this book for ages 12 and up and overall I rate this book a 9.5 out of 10. I hope this inspires the readers of this blog to check it out.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
