The Lost Voice is not just your ordinary fairy tale involving sirens who led sailors to death. It’s a dark, modern fairy tale that deals with a lot of depressing issues in teenage girls’ lives. Okay… at first glance, it sounded like a modern fairy tale, but trust me, there’s more to this book than just a fairy tale. It deals with suicide, bullies, oppression as well as peer pressure. Another disturbing issue that this book raise is acceptance by the society.
The Lost Voice…is metaphorically speaking of the issues that’s clouding the teenage girls world these days. It is also hinting at us that a lot of people has lost their voices to speak up and uphold truth and justice. This is a beautiful, yet insightful and very inspiring book to read.
The first book in a trilogy, Lost Voices is a captivating and wildly original tale about finding a voice, the healing power of friendship, and the strength it takes to forgive.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received this digital ARC from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publisher via Netgalley.
