Summer Book Club #2 – Whisper if You Have To


From Goodreads:

Secrets. Alison Prescott has collected a boatload of them in her short lifetime. Moving to a new school in a new town was supposed to fix everything; however, when she meets a new set of friends, keeping those secrets might just ruin everything.

Chad Dourozette has the world by the tail as his crazy T-shirts proclaim every day, but Chad has deeply held secrets of his own. When Chad meets Alison whose life looks absolutely perfect from the outside, will he have the courage to try to win her heart, or will the secrets they both carry keep them apart forever?

I’ll be up front and confess I’m not much of a romance reader. Generally, if the only purpose for a story is to introduce boy and girl and see how they get their happily ever after, it’s not enough of a plot for me. 

However, I’m over half-way through the book already, and it’s doing a good job of captivating me. Part of that is that the POV shifts from Alison to Chad as quick as volleys in tennis. It’s an interest writing device and it works to keep the story moving.

One thing that confused me at first were the characters. I had trouble distinguishing Chad from his friend Kyle. 

Trucking through to see how the story ends. Looking forward to discussing it with you on or around July 1.

  1. I am a sucker for a good romance and as I am breezing my way through Whisper If You Have To, I’ve been trying to analyze why. I think part of it may be because I get so wrapped up in stories and the minor drama in a romance is much more relaxing than the higher-stress drama of other books. In By Darkness Hid, I’d get so anxious for the characters I’d be rushing to find out what happens but also full of trepidation just waiting for the next horrible thing. Whisper If You Have To has been more relaxing (though I still get on pins and needles constantly expecting her mother to show up and put a kibash on whatever Ali is doing.)
