#REVIEW: The Silent Sounds of Chaos by Kristina Circelli

TSSOCEbookAmazon (1)  A silent call for help began the friendship between two children. A bond unlike any other kept them together. Finn was just a kid when he first heard Snow’s voice inside his head, two children in need of a friend and finding one in mysterious strangers. Never meeting in person, the pair grows up as opposites – Finn the boy who loves to get in trouble and works for the toughest drug lord in town, Snow the good, sheltered girl who wants to be a doctor. The bond built upon a strange ability to hear each other’s thoughts is threatened when Snow is abducted, her screams for help consuming Finn’s mind until they disappear completely, submerging him in a terrifying silence he’s never known before. Now it’s up to Finn to save her, led only by Snow’s sporadic thoughts as she floats in and out of consciousness. But the search for Snow leads him to a truth he isn’t prepared to face, a truth that has the power to unravel his entire world. The people he thought he knew, the life he thought he’d made, the best friend he thought he could protect – all point toward a brutal reality should he fail. And as Finn struggles to find Snow before she slips away, he must fight to keep that reality out, lest he let the chaos in.

My Rating: 4 1/2 stars

My Review:  I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow. That's all I can say. This book blew me away, and its not the only book that Kristina Circelli has written that has done this. She is an amazing author that has created books that have stayed with me. I knew when I heard she had come out with another book, I definitely needed to read it. But even if it wasn't by her, the synopsis of the book would have drawn me in. I love the idea of two children being able to connect telepathically. Would it be a sci-fi book? A psychological thriller? A fantasy book?
From the very beginning, I was pulled into the story of these two children, one boy named Finn in the darker, seedier side of life, and the innocent well-to-do girl, Snow. As the book continued and the book followed their lives, my heart broke for Finn and the life that he doesn't seem to have much control over. I kept hoping that the growing connection between the two children would start to show Finn that people can be better, he can be better.
And then heartbreak happens as Snow is kidnapped and I was pulled along helplessly as Finn desperately searched for her and time started to run down. But wait....oh no....
The plot twist happens and all I can say is that my head spun. I sat there after finishing the book and couldn't get it out of my head of a good week after I finished the last page. Now I want to read it again just to see if there were clues somewhere, anywhere that pointed towards that end.
