During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice. She hopes she's not going crazy, because after what she's experienced, that's the most logical explanation. However, as she begins to listen to the voice, Audrey realizes that someone may be telepathically trying to help her.

Unfortunately, rescue isn't all she needs. In order to leave behind the constant reminders, she flees to her Aunt Kate's house in San Diego, and assumes a new identity. It works until the eighteen-year-old twin boys who live next door threaten to break through the protective walls she's worked so hard to build.
Between Caleb going out of his way to befriend her and Justin avoiding her at all costs, Audrey doesn't know if normalcy will ever find her again. But one thing is certain: When a familiar danger resurfaces, it's the same voice that she turns to -- a voice that is not only real, but a lot closer than she realizes.
Gripping and tastefully told, The Voice is a story of healing, trust, and courage.

Our Review

What can one say but this book is moving and emotional and absolutely amazing to read. Right away I wanted to wrap my arms around Audrey, take away all her fears, comfort her, wipe away the horrible nightmares that plagued her.
The Voice is a story about a very hard subject it is about kidnapping and rape by a family member no less. Audrey does get away, she is rescued, the story is about her road to recovery and the struggles to get there along the way. Not just Audrey’s struggles but that of her family as well. This is not a light topic but so very well written.
You know in any other young adult book I would just gush all over Caleb and Justin and pick on the author about how is a girl to choose when you put two fine specimens in a book. But that would do this book a disjustice. Caleb and Justin are twins who are really special in more ways than one. As different as they are from each other in many ways they are the same. Caleb right away takes to Audrey and tucks her under his wing like a little sister. Justin however is distant and well frustrating, at first.
But it is Justin who breaks through to Audrey and that is when she realizes who he really is. I wont tell you because it would surely spoil it. But let me just say that the author did a fabulous job writing these three characters. Along with Audrey’s aunt Katy. I absolutely loved her. If it wasn’t for her stepping in when she did Audrey would not have had that chance at healing that she desperately needed.

Thank you for giving me the chance to read this amazing book. And like the book says at the end if you have ever been a victim there is help out there – don’t be afraid to reach out and ask for you – you are not alone.
