What I Didn’t Say
By: Keary Taylor
Getting drunk homecoming night your senior year is never a good idea, but Jake Hayes never expected it all to end with a car crash and a t-post embedded in his throat.
His biggest regret about it all? What he never said to Samantha Shay. He’s been in love with her for years and never had the guts to tell her. Now it’s too late. Because after that night, Jake will never be able to talk again.
When Jake returns to his small island home, population 5,000, he’ll have to learn how to deal with being mute. He also finds that his family isn’t limited to his six brothers and sisters, that sometimes an entire island is watching out for you. And when he gets the chance to spend more time with Samantha, she’ll help him learn that not being able to talk isn’t the worst thing that could ever happen to you. Maybe, if she’ll let him, Jake will finally tell her what he didn’t say before, even if he can’t actually say it.
I finished reading What I Didn’t Say last night, and I figured I could do a little pre-review/teaser before my actual review (which I have yet to write, but bear with me, I’m in the middle of exams).
What I Didn’t Say would go under the category of books that broke my heart —in a good way. It’s touching, emotive, and sometimes really sweet and heart breaking. Why yes, I’m recommending it.
And now let’s watch the trailer, because I have nothing else to say that won’t either: (1) spoil the whole thing, or (2) completely ruin my review. 😉 By the way, it’s a really awesome trailer.
