Radio SilenceDe (autor) Alice Oseman
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 25 Feb 2016 – vârsta de la 13 ani
The second novel by the phenomenally talented author of Solitaire, Alice Oseman – the most talked-about YA writer right now.
What if everything you set yourself up to be was wrong?
Frances has always been a study machine with one goal, elite university. Nothing will stand in her way; not friends, not a guilty secret – not even the person she is on the inside.
But when Frances meets Aled, the shy genius behind her favourite podcast, she discovers a new freedom. He unlocks the door to Real Frances and for the first time she experiences true friendship, unafraid to be herself. Then the podcast goes viral and the fragile trust between them is broken.
Caught between who she was and who she longs to be, Frances’ dreams come crashing down. Suffocating with guilt, she knows that she has to confront her past…
She has to confess why Carys disappeared…
Meanwhile at uni, Aled is alone, fighting even darker secrets.
It’s only by facing up to your fears that you can overcome them. And it’s only by being your true self that you can find happiness.
Frances is going to need every bit of courage she has.
A YA coming of age read that tackles issues of identity, the pressure to succeed, diversity and freedom to choose, Radio Silence is a tour de force by the most exciting writer of her generation.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express
Trasca Maria a dat nota:
I'm still not sure whether this deserves 3.5 stars or 4, but I'll go with the latter. Overall, I liked how it didn't exactly imply some classic love story, but instead focused on friendship. It had a lot of elements that I liked and felt relatable, but at the same time I didn't grow as attached to characters as I thought I would. Deserves a reading though
Alice Oseman was born in 1994 in Kent, England. She completed a degree in English at Durham University in 2016 and is currently a full-time writer and illustrator. Alice can usually be found staring aimlessly at computer screens, questioning the meaninglessness of existence, or doing anything and everything to avoid getting an office job. Alice's first book, SOLITAIRE, was published when she was nineteen.
“An intense, highly engaging, well–plotted story of relationships, explorations into gay and bisexual identities, family trauma, a straight-jacket education system, and, mostly, kids yearning to be their truest selves despite it all.” — Booklist (starred review)
“Keenly intelligent. A smart, timely outing.” — Kirkus Reviews
“Oseman is a master at combining sardonic wit with angst to create believable characters and a compelling contemporary story that will resonate with teens. VERDICT: A top pick for any YA collection.” — School Library Journal
Praise for SOLITAIRE: “A fascinating debut from an author to watch.” — ALA Booklist
“Oseman’s debut could put her among the great young adult fiction authors.” — Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
“Tori’s voice makes this story into a poignant yet blackly funny and even lively emotional journey. A deeply absorbing read.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Oseman proves herself a clever, witty writer.” — Publishers Weekly
“Honest and authentic… with appeal to fans of John Green.” — Bookseller (London)
“In [Oseman’s] punky, depressive, epigrammatic, mordant heroine Tori Spring we have a Holden Caulfield for the internet age.” — The Times (London)
