"I’d love a cup of coffee. I wish she knew how pretty she was. I wish I could drop this kid in the dryer sometimes. I just want her to be happy. I hope she didn’t find out what Ben said about her. I wish I knew how many calories were in a bite of muffin…

Joy is used to hearing Whispers. She’s used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people’s deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good, to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people’s lives—especially Joy’s—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears a frightening whisper from Jessica's own mind, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own."

Overall Thoughts:  Phoebe Kitanidis' Whisper is an amazing debut novel. That  I really, really loved!!I wasn't bored at all while reading this book. Between Joy Hearing people's Whispers to Jessica's attitude towards the family gift. While Jessica sees it more as a curse. She tends to make others life's around her miserable because of Hearing their Whispers. But when things go sour between the sisters, and Joy uses her power to find her sister it brings them closer together. Brings a new understanding between Jessica and her mother. Joy finds a true friend to be the real Joy around. Jamie, who has a secret power of his own.

All and all an awesome read, there is some swearing in it. 

Hope you enjoyed my review, Ashley
