More than two years have passed since a silent, dangerous girl wound up at Lengard, an underground governmental facility. Because of her refusal to speak, her guards and evaluators refer to her as “Jane Doe,” and for two years, she has lived the life of a walking corpse. But when her newest evaluator, Ward, turns out to be young, charming, and compassionate, the walls Jane has built begin to crumble. When she finally speaks, she confirms what she already knows; her words have phenomenal power, and what she intends, she can create. But nothing at Lengard is as it seems, and when Jane encounters an external group of Speakers, everything she thinks she understands about her ability changes.

Blog Discussion:   Would you trust anyone associated with Lengard after being held captive and abused for over two years? Why does Jane trust Ward? How does Ward chip away at her refusal to speak?

  1. Whisper, written by Lynette Noni was a really good book. I really liked the way the author described her thoughts about the people at Lengard and the facility itself. There were many simple things in life that I did not expect her to be shocked about. For example, when Alyssa (Jane Doe/Chip/Subject 684) is taken to Ward’s suite, the sight of her face in the mirror shocks her.
    The whole book had so many plot twists and gave so many perspectives on all the characters, it was hard to tell which character was the antagonist. My feeling Landon Ward changed many times along the story, from when he was caring about Chip to keeping secrets about her past. Also, figuring out how Alyssa killed her parents kept me on my toes throughout the book.

  2. Whisper is probably my favorite FTR book so far. It was written very well, and once I got into it, I didn’t want to leave. Each page left me wondering for more and left me to want more answers. The author didn’t give out much information until the middle and the end of the book. There were many twists and turns that kept changing my view on some things. If I were Alyssa — also known as Chip, Subject Six-Eighty-Four, Jane Doe, and JD — I would be wary of trusting people also. Alyssa has always set up walls to prevent herself from trusting people. However, Ward was able to begin chipping through those walls by being nice and attempting to get close to her.

    In this book, it wasn’t easy to predict what was going to happen. I think that is why I liked it so much because it was unpredictable. It kind of reminded me of the Hunger Games with the transfer to District 13, but I do wonder how well the sequel is written and whether the sequel is able to be written even better than the first.
