All is Silence by Robert L. Slater
What I Enjoyed: There were a few quotes and comments that rang true. “But close only counted in horse shoes, hand grenades and slow dancing.” – Lizzie
The author touches on how the bond of parenting changes perspectives, purpose…everything. I also found ideas such as how people need to hear “it’s going to be okay” in a crisis, and how families are those who love and nurture you – not just the one you’re born into.
My favorite scene was Zach trying to teach ‘dog-man’ Spike how to use a bathroom.
Deal Benders: I would read the sequel if some of the writing was cleaned up. I don’t appreciate sex scenes and excessive swearing in YA books.
Overall Rating: A great idea, great potential, but overall just okay delivery. I really wanted to love this one!
