On the outside, Willow appears to have it all. She’s beautiful, smart, from an influential family, and she dates the most popular guy in school—Jaden. But she would walk away from it all in a second. Willow is tormented by lies and suffocating guilt, not the hearts and flowers people believe her life is full of.
She carries a dark secret. Plagued by nightmares and pain, the secret dominates her life. If she hadn’t walked away. If she had just…but she didn’t. And now she has to live with her choice. But when someone uncovers her family’s past, they use it against her, crushing her spirit little by little. She tells herself she just has to make it to graduation. Then she can leave Middleton, and her secret, far behind.
When Brody transfers to Cassidy High, he turns Willow’s life upside down. He shows her what it feels like to live again, really live. And suddenly, she isn’t satisfied with just surviving until graduation. She wants a normal life—with Brody—and he wants her. But the closer they become, the more it threatens to unravel the secret she’s worked so hard to hide.
Willow finds true love with Brody. Will she let his love save her, or walk away from him to keep her secret safe? (Goodreads)
Here's my review of this phenomenal book:
You know those books that make your heart ache? The ones that leave you wishing you could read that last chapter really slow, just so it won't end? Unspeakable is one of those. It's going to make you wish you could give Willow a big hug, get a pedi with Jenna, and definitely get to know Brody. Oh, Brody. I'm seriously going to have to make a t-shirt that says "Team Brody". *Swoons* He's definitely book-boyfriend worthy and then some! Willow is stuck in an impossible situation, one that makes you cringe and want to wrap her in a giant hug. Her strength in dealing with it all is amazing, but sometimes the hardest part is learning how to get help. I know you'll be cheering her on, and praying things work out well for her all through the book. That, and loving her snarky t-shirts! Beyond the amazing characters, this book also has a message that I think is vital for women of all ages. The portrayal of an abusive relationship is all too real, especially in its contrast to how Willow and Brody work together. No one deserves to be stuck in a relationship that's abusive and I think that is so clearly expressed through Willow's story that I wish teens everywhere should read this book. Find the strength to get out and get help. There are so many layers to this novel, and I don't want to give away spoilers, but it's a heartwarming novel that's stuck with me and I can't say anything better than just Go Read It!
