#BlinkTRW #Review Never Said by @carol_writer928 with #Giveaway #Thanks @BlinkYABooks

Annie and Sarah are fifteen-year-old fraternal twins who only spend time together because they're under the same roof. Annie's life has long been focused around her appearance and the beauty pageants that celebrate it, whereas Sarah's interests are sports and her runner boyfriend, Jeremy.

Then Annie begins to gain more and more weight, and all she seems to hear from her mother is, You used to be so pretty, followed by the latest diet to try.

Things begin to unravel for Sarah as well. Jeremy her boyfriend of more than a year decides to see if he and Sarah are "right" for each other, dumping her in order to get his head on straight.

Sarah is devastated. Her family is crumbling. The love of her life is dating other people. Her sister is getting heavier and more depressed. When Sarah learns, through gentle questioning, that a neighbor and very good family friend has been sexually abusing her sister, she knows she must act and help the sister who seemingly always had it all.

Told in alternating points of view, Never Said is the story of a family that has been caught up in what doesn t matter and about two sisters who realize that their relationship no matter how different the two of them are is most important."

Here's a take or leave review. I really went to Never Said with a completely open mind. I'm usually not one to draw towards books with really tough topics. This being said, since I've never just picked one up on its own, I was really drawn and curious to Never Said, because it focused on a different kind of read for me. Perhaps, that's why we didn't click very well. This book deals with serious emotions and family secrets that are heavy and realistic and just...wow. The book self was done really well. I enjoyed the writing style and the comfort that the author brought to each new chapter, but as for me, it didn't hold my attention as much as I wanted to.
