Main Radio Silence

Radio Silence

From critically
acclaimed author Alice Oseman comes a smartly crafted contemporary YA
novel, perfect for readers who love Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl. This is an utterly captivating and authentic new teen novel from the author of Solitaire, which VOYA said “could put her among the great young adult fiction authors.”

Frances Janvier spends most of her time studying.

Everyone knows Aled Last as that quiet boy who gets straight As.

You probably think that they are going to fall in love or something. Since he is a boy and she is a girl.

They don’t. They make a podcast.

In
a world determined to shut them up, knock them down, and set them on a
cookie cutter life path, Frances and Aled struggle to find their voices
over the course of one life-changing year. Will they have the courage to
show everyone who they really are? Or will they be met with radio
silence?

"I wonder-if nobody is listening to my voice, am I making any sound at all?"

There are certain books that you read knowing that you would like them, but at the end you end up LOVING them. Radio Silence was such a book for me. I knew this book was quite famous and now I can understand why.

"I wonder-if nobody is listening to my voice, am I making any sound at all?"

There are certain books that you read knowing that you would like them, but at the end you end up LOVING them. Radio Silence was such a book for me. I knew this book was quite famous and now I can understand .

I think this is a book that readers should dive in not knowing anything about it.
All that I can tell you is that Radio Silence is a book about Frances, who is a study machine, and her love towards a podcast named Universe City,(for which she draws fan art) whose creator is unknown.

I hadn't read anything by Alice Oseman, and when I read Radio Silence, I instantly fell in love with her writing, as well as her characters. When you read Radio Silence, you become the characters, you aren't just an outsider. The writing was so swift that the pages flew by, and before I knew it, the book ended, and I just felt empty. Now that I know that I will never experience that 'first time' feeling, I am dejected.
Coming to the characters, each character is so fresh and their emotions so raw, their confusions at times, reflecting my own. I saw myself in the overachieving trait of Frances, and the sadness that Aled felt. At times, the emotions of the characters mirrored my own, that I felt I'd fit in better with them than in this world. This is easily the BEST YA Contemporary that I read this year.
The diversity represented in this book an element that I found beautiful. Frances, the protagonist, is bi and of mixed race. Most of the characters are from different backgrounds. There were Indian and Asian characters, and I really liked the way everything blended together.
The core element is the issue that this book talks about and I have to say I've never seen such a successful attempt at this particular issue. It is clearly executed . Even though the book talks about topics like mental health, it remains hopeful till the end, which again points to the fact that Alice Oseman is a unique author.

No matter where you are, or who you are, you will deeply connect with this book and the words will provide you bliss which you will cherish forever.

A highly recommended read if you are looking for a platonic relationship trope rather than a romantic one.

(There are so many elements that are left unsaid in the review, only because I feel that these are the things that readers should read for themselves and enjoy)
