This is one of those books that you know right from the beginning is going to be awesome. The main character is called Frances , she lives next to Carys and Aled. They are all preparing to go to college and the worry and stress of preparing to get into college and sit exams is high. Throughout this process some have more support then others . I actually hated Aled and Carys mother, she was despicable , her behaviour and history with her kids was awful and my heart went out to them .
Sexuality, friendship , family and education and mental health and abuse are some of the subjects covered in this thoughtfully written book .
Reading this book , the importance of friendship became very clear , how it can hold you up when you are sinking from stress and abuse .
Radio silence was a podcast that Aled created to escape his life and reach out to others , especially those he most loved without doing it directly . This world he created on social media was an escape for him when his life was terrible , it was fun and used his exceptional creativity to the max that can't be measured by exam results .
This book had it all ... inspiring broken characters , real life struggles that most people can empathise with and a memorable story . Loved this!
I received this book for review from the lovely folks over at Lovereading4kids. This book is being published February 2016 and will be available from Lovereading4kids and all other good bookstores then .
