Never Said by Carol Lynch Williams was a very interesting book. I really enjoyed this book and it was a super quick read because it is a YA fiction. This was a great break from the books I have read. I loved that the author didn’t shy away from topics that kids really have to deal with in today’s society. I love when authors take on hard to talk about subjects because it opens the door for people to talk about them. I loved seeing how Sarah & Annie interacted and how much they changed from the start of the book right up until the end of the book. I felt like I could relate to Sarah the most because we have very similar personalities. If you love YA fiction or you have a teenager in your life you need to read this book.
