Posted by HelloJennyReviews at 9:00 AM
Lynette Noni studied journalism and academic writing at university before completing a degree in human behavior. She lives on the Sunshine Coast in Australia and can be found baking cupcakes, singing along to animated movies, or daydreaming about being swept away to a fantasy world. Some days, she can even do all three at once — and still find the time to sneak in a nap afterwards.

Whisper by Lynette Noni is an amazing sci-fi story about a girl. This girl has no name so she has been dubbed 'Jane Doe'. This girl doesn’t talk but there is something about her that has people inside a top secret government facility very interested in studying her. 

Jane Doe checked herself into a mental hospital. Lengard, a top secret government facility, checked her out. Ever since then she has been kept as a prisoner of sorts so that she might be monitored and studied. For what, you might be asking? Well, that’s top secret.

Since her admittance into Lengard, Jane hasn’t exactly been performing up to standards. She has been there for over two years and has not spoken a single word. This leaves the leader of Lengard, Rick Falon, with no other choice but to switch gears up and give her an ultimatum. He will change her schedule around, start treating her as an actual human being in exchange for her cooperating with her doctors or she will be eliminated from the program. Elimination means death when you are part of a top secret program.

So Jane is introduced to Landon Ward. He makes her heart beat faster. He makes her walls come down. He makes her want to talk. But there is a reason Jane doesn’t utter a word. A very deadly reason. And getting her to talk might just be the last thing these people will ever do.

In the end, I extremely enjoyed this book. If you have read Shatter Me by Tahereh Mari then you will devour this book. I fell for most of the characters and the beautiful story this author wove. It is books like this that make me pick up lesser-known publishers books. You never know what kind of gems you are missing if you just stick to over-hyped titles.

Overall, I gave the book 4.5/5 stars.
