Review: The Voice

 
Title: The Voice
Author: Jennifer Anne Davis
Young Adult


Blurb:

 During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice. She hopes she's not going crazy, because after what she's experienced, that's the most logical explanation. However, as she begins to listen to the voice, Audrey realizes that someone may be telepathically trying to help her.

Unfortunately, rescue isn't all she needs. In order to leave behind the constant reminders, she flees to her Aunt Kate's house in San Diego, and assumes a new identity. It works until the eighteen-year-old twin boys who live next door threaten to break through the protective walls she's worked so hard to build.

Between Caleb going out of his way to befriend her and Justin avoiding her at all costs, Audrey doesn't know if normalcy will ever find her again. But one thing is certain: When a familiar danger resurfaces, it's the same voice that she turns to -- a voice that is not only real, but a lot closer than she realizes.
Gripping and tastefully told, The Voice is a story of healing, trust, and courage.


My Thoughts:

I finished this book in one day, and let me tell ya: wow. The Voice was a mixed-emotion thing for me. I despised the slow place, even hated it, but I had to remind myself that real life doesn't hold so much action for a teenager. After that continous reminder, Audrey had me --- the whole story did. However, it was diffcult to accept the relationship between Audrey and the twins. It just felt...unrealistic, but like any reader, I muddled through , eventually accepting (although, not every reader will do that).

The supernatural aspect was a bit lacking; didn't feel as part of the story and could make on wonder if the book could have done find without it. I believe it could but that didn't stop me from saying "Yay, supernatural" cx .

As for the love part, you end up saying "Awww.", yet also "This feels so fast." Although Audrey explained how she and the voice spoke endlessly, when she and the voice were together during her abduction, I couldn't buy it. I wish Davis gave her readers a little taste of those conversations, then the love would be natural, like it needed to happen.
