Raebeth sent me an e-copy of Silenced for an honest review and I have been swamped with work, other books that I have promised to read and review, and Christmas that I only began reading Silenced yesterday morning before heading to work.

I finished reading the book in a surprisingly short amount of time since I began it yesterday morning before heading to work and completed it yesterday evening after work! I couldn't help it, Silenced wouldn't let me go.

Whilst at work my mind kept drifting to Amber's problem with control and her addiction to cutting. We see so many books on bullies, drugs, drink issues and so on but there are very few books around (that I have read) about issues like dealing with control, for example by causing pain or eating disorders.

Silenced is so well written, full of emotion and hurt yet it's all relatable so it doesn't feel like this could never happen to you or me. Amber could be any teenager suffering from a variety of family, friend and fitting-in problems but it's her thought process and the way she deals with her problems that make Silenced unique.
The only disappointment is that Silenced ends with a cliff hanger so I need to wait until Raebeth releases the sequel!

I'm not usually at a loss for words but I don't know how to write a review that does justice to what I have read and so I will stop here.

The only thing I will say is please read Silenced by Raebeth Buda...it IS worth it...

Zed (:

This is a fascinating story of a woman suffering with depression. I struggled to put this book down!

Amber is a teenager who has had several changes in her life. Not only is her father not her father, but moving to a new home town and trying to make new friends has her feeling like her life is spiralling out of control. Her only respite from the emotional pain seems to come from the physical pain of cutting. I loved Amber's character. Having one set back after the other is enough to drive anyone into depression. I just wish that she didn't feel the urge to self-harm.

This is an emotionally laden story that brings into focus the effects of depression. Many people feel depressed at one time or another. However, sometimes the emotional pain is too much for one person, and they resort to diversionary tactics to try to make themselves feel better. Some do extreme sports, others overeat and a few self-harm. Amber is one of those who feels the release of endorphins after she cuts. Luckily, I have never had depression so bad that I have had to go to such extremes. I've had mild depression (who hasn't?), but I completely empathised with Amber. What surprised me is that no-one seemed to suspect that there was anything wrong. I suppose that people only see what they want to see. Just like eating disorders, severe depression can lead to unhealthy and dangerous behaviour. If undiagnosed, those suffering depression can spiral down to suicidal tendencies. I have had a few people I know take their lives due to depression. I felt completely helpless, as I had moved thousands of miles away, and had not spoken to them for a while so had no inkling at all.
If you or someone you know is prone to depression, I seriously suggest that medical advice be sought as soon as possible.

WOW! Where do I literally start with this book. I was intrigued by the story line and when I realized it was about a girl a teenage girl cutting herself it made me think of a person who is really really close to me. It was like most of her story was being written. With the way Amber was treated at school because she was different, the problems with her family life, only have 1 best friend and then another who just did not seem all there at times. To even the boy who knew about her cutting herself and did not want her to do it again because he was afraid for her.

There were a few things that got to me a bit in this book.
One thing I do wish the author would have gone into detail about is when she started cutting herself exactly. How did her and her friend start and why?
What was up with Casey? It was like she was a bit crazy in my opinion. She would be fine one minute, then the next be upset. I wonder if she knew the truth with Amber's family.

The way Amber treated her mom I can relate to that part because I have seen someone act that same way!

I loved reading how Amber's boyfriend was his safe haven, and I know how important it is for someone to have a safe haven when they are hurting themselves. This book really opened my eyes to what some teenagers do out their and it made me ask questions to the person close to me about the whole cutting scene. The way the darkness was described I could almost feel it myself in this book.
This is a hard topic for anyone to talk about as it deals with depression and the need to relive oneself from everything even for a few minutes to a day to a week.
RaeBeth hit the head of the nail on this book, and as I see there is a book 2 I am SOOOOOOOO GOING TO BUY IT.

I was always aware that due to my own circumstances, Silenced was going to be a difficult read. Depression and self harm are very personal but I was hoping I would find traits in Amber I could connect with. Although I felt empathy for her character I felt that there was too much stomping around and "my mum hates me" which made Amber sound more like a typical teenager than truly depressed, which I felt was an uncomfortable line that Raebeth McGee walked.
However, Silenced does deal with issues of self harm well and as frankly as possible, without glorifying them to the book's YA readers.
I was disappointed by the way in which Raebeth McGee used the romance between Landon and Amber as a 'cure'. Amber stops the majority of her self harming when they become a couple, claiming he 'saved her'. I think this would have been an ideal opportunity for the author to step out of the stereotypes and let Amber fight a way out of the cycle herself, encouraging her female readers in the same position to do the similar thing. This is especially true for YA readers who will be self harming due to body image issues who do not have a boyfriend or feel worthy of one.
Despite my issues with the relationship between Landon and Amber the romance is well-written and tender and certainly satisfies the reader.
I enjoyed the way in which Raebeth McGee built the friendships between the two couples - the deconstruction of Casey's character was also very clever, especially compared to Amber's new strength.
The secondary storyline about Amber's biological father was unfortunately overwhelmed by other events and predictable. However I look forward to seeing how this develops in the sequel.
This book should be added to your TBR because it offers an insight into an often ignored problem- which is more common than people realise.
