by Carrie Ryan
First off I have to say look at this pretty book cover! Don’t you just love it, and it doesn’t give away anything but definitely draws you to pick up the book. Daughter of Deep Silence is quite the mystery and thriller. Not in the way you might be thinking, it is a edge of your seat thriller that slowly unravels and has you going oh my stars. Frances is out for revenge and she will not rest till someone pays for killing everyone she has loved. I can’t even imagine witnessing what she saw and being 14. Carrie Ryan did an excellent job at character development and having the reader really fall into the world she created for Daughter of Deep Silence. I loved how each character had their own back story not just Frances/Libby. You really got to know the main characters and she even developed great little back stories for the minor characters. My favorite besides Frances/Libby was Shepherd. I really like him! The ending is not what I expected and I loved it. This book is absolutely perfect for summer reading. However don’t plan on doing much else than just reading this book. Trust me I speak from experience, I love books that grab you and don’t want to let go of the book till you finish it. This book would be perfect for a movie (hint, hint) it kinda reminds me of Revenge for YA readers. It is really pretty clean minus a few kisses and talking about wanting to kiss someone, no bad language or adult situations.
summary: At fourteen, Frances survived a slaughter that claimed the lives of her parents and best friend, Libby, but she took on Libby’s identity and wealth while plotting revenge against the powerful Wells family and now, at age eighteen, is ready to destroy them, including her first love, Grey.
