I received a review copy
A strong-willed yet vulnerable young beauty, Julia Pearl is sixteen years old when she’s sent away to summer camp for the first time. Julia’s father and stepmother are convinced that time away from home will be good for Julia, hoping it will restore the confidence she lost when her mother disappeared five years earlier.
Released from the emotional constraints of her new family and the ugly reputation her mother left behind, Julia finds herself reluctantly tossed into the free-spirited and often drama-infused world of overnight camp—where she quickly falls for an intensely charismatic counselor named Jack Dempsey, a nineteen-year-old college student who will prove to save her life in more ways than one.
Rich with humor and poignancy, Whisper If You Need Me is a timeless story that will remind readers of the strength of friendship, the unwavering devotion of family, and ultimately, the power of young love.
I have been a huge fan of Dina Silver since her first novel came out, and I was very curious to read her first YA offering. As I don’t read YA on the regular, I’ll admit I was a smidge worried I might not love it. That didn’t happen. I loved it. I couldn’t put it down. I read it in a day. Wow. What a book! I love that we get the dual point of views from Julia and Jack. All the characters were very well-written and felt like real people. I was easily drawn into the book from page one and hooked until the last, and I highly recommend you get this on your reading list!
