Whisper By Phoebe Kitanidis

Book Description
I'd love a cup of coffee. . . . I wish she didn't hide how pretty she is. . . . 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 Jessica Whisper I want to kill my Hearing dead, and kill me too if that's what it takes, 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.

My Review

Whisper was a book i heard many say they loved....and it was a book i felt like i had to get...

But it wasn't enough for me...if Whisper is a first from a series which i don't think it is i would buy the sequel and this book would make heeps of sense to me but due to my research showing me no signs of a sequel I'm left somewhat displeased.
The snail paced beginning gave me every opportunity to add it to the "Cant keep me interested pile" but i kept going as i like the concept of being able to hear someones wasn't until half way through that i was smitten but by then it was too late in to give it my full love that i felt like it should have deserved. Phoebe spent alot of time in the book describing people and locations and not enough time getting to the action and gripping the readers attention.

So on a whole do i advise you to buy it......yes and no like I said I love the story line, I love the characters, I even like the cover... i just don't like the book.
