Review to follow Review to follow Although the readers are warned that this book is dark and one where children get hurt, it s also based the author s, Jess, childhood and family secret Although Jess wrote this as a fiction novel, I sense I ll dive into an emotional roller coaster Getting a chance to have a glimpse of one of my favorite authors personal life will be awe stricken Because it reminds us readers that in the end, authors are human too.
With that said Unspeakable Things dives into the world of Cassie, a young girl living in a rural part of a small Minnesota town While Cassie daydreams about how to get her boy crush to date her, she also struggles with having to keep a family secret to herself because family matters are to be kept in the home all t Summer of 1983, boys in Cassie s small town are being molested by a stranger in a mask The almost thirteen year old has a number of suspects, her gay music teacher, the scary man kids call Goblin, the creepy police chief, even her own father.
Unspeakable Things drew me in with Cassie s wise, yet innocent voice Jess Lourey skillfully showed the difference between what the tween understood and what certain characters in her life were actually doing Because of Cassie s na vet , Lourey skirts around some of the bigger issues going in in her home like incest and sex parties.
Lourey doesn t shy away from the prejudices against gay men and a conservative, judgmental small town mentality that I remember well from living in a small town in 1983 when I was nineteen I assume she chose to set the show during the years of her own childhood, when similar kidnappings occurred I This book is emotional and intense and just so compelling I was flipping those pages like mad with my heart in my throat It s out of my normal genre to read, but OMG so grateful I got an early copy Beautifully written Definite winner.
This story touches on subject matters otherwise not spoken about The storyline is gentle and transitions smoothly yet bold and uncomfortable at times Jess Lourey does a great job of drawing the reader in and keeping your attention I m a fan of her work.
