Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

Rating : ★ ★ ★ ★

I went in to Radio Silence not knowing a lot and I feel that if I gave a full synopsis it would be doing a great disservice to the book, so I’ll let you know what it’s about. This book is mainly about friendships and how they become more important than family. How friendships can save you and make you feel whole, like less of a freak, and that how you will find certain people that just fit in your life and make you a better person. They make you whole. It’s also about identity and acceptance and more importantly it’s about hope.

There’s not a plot as much as you follow the characters development, their friendship and get to live their lives. Experience what they feel and how they’re growing into people, the fear that every teenager feels as they’re staring at their future, university and the intense meaning that is behind that one word to the point that they feel trapped.

I feel that some characters could have been more well rounded, but the main cast was a perfect balance. You can tell that these people really needed to find each other, fitting together like a puzzle.

Sitting here staring at my blank review it was really difficult to choose between a 4 star and a 5 star review, let’s call it a 4.5. Nearly perfect but I am sure this book will mean so much to so many people. I hope that it finds it’s way to them.
