Man, I knew I would enjoy this book based off the book description alone but, I didn’t think I would fall in love with this book. First, I salute Keary Taylor for writing such an amazingly inspirational book. “What I didn’t say” just got added to my favorites list. I loved everything about this book; I can truly say there wasn’t a thing I disliked.
The characters were so genuine. After Jake’s accident you could have seen him give up and let him going mute defeat him but, he stands up and owns up to his mistakes. His character grows with time, and I feel we see his love for Sam growing from an actual crush, to a real love. Then there’s Samantha the girl you feel has it all, class valedictorian, seemingly happy at school, to finding out her life is not all glitter and rainbows. Together they grow as people and learn that family goes beyond blood, friends will always be by your side, you can’t fight love, and sometimes bad things happen… so that better things can fall into place. The supporting characters were also I great added addition. Jake’s family is great especially is mother, father, and Sister Jordan. They always seemed to be there when ever Jake or Sam needed them.
The writing was Superb, and the plot both original and refreshing. “What I didn’t say” had moments where I laughed, cried, and then cried some more but, in the end it was all worth it to get to the final chapter in their story. The only way this story could be better, is if it had an epilogue.
Overall, this was a great story. If you buy it you will not be disappointed in your purchase.
Please, please, please read the authors note at the end. It will make this book that much better.
Would I recommend it: Yes!
