Summary: Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?

My Thoughts: Wish I would have loved this one more than I did. It was just ok for me. We are introduced to Kami who has had a voice in her head most of her life.  His named is Jared. Some people think she’s weird, while others think its just her. As a kid, others thought it was just an imaginary friend, but Kami knows the truth.

Kami is determined to find out what has been happening in her town. She lives in the kind of town where everybody knows everybody and rumors sure do fly.

A family who has a pretty long history in Sorry-In-The-Vail moves back to town, and Kami is even more intrigued with them, because among them are two good looking boys. Their names are Jared and Ash. Hmmm Jared, huh?

I loved that Jared has become a real boy! HA! I loved their interactions and I also loved Ash. I loved that Kami is so determined, and she has a great mind.

I loved the concept of Unspoken. It was definitely imaginative, I just had a hard time connecting with the overall plot. It was ok, and I’ll read the next in the series, but I just didn't love it, and when I finished, I just wasn't feeling the wow feeling I wanted too.

Overall: Yep, I can see some people loving this one, I really can. But maybe it was my reading mood, or something else, I’m not sure. I've grown in my reading habits, because I know I can’t love every book I read, and there will just be some that are a hit or miss for me, and I’m ok with that.

Cover: It’s alright. Don’t love the cover exactly either. Oh well, can’t like everything.

What I’d Give It:

I didn't really feel this one either. I mean, I thought there were some hilarious lines but the plot as a whole wasn't that great to me.
