Review: The Secret Language of Sisters by Luanne Rice

3/5 stars 

A story of two sisters (Roo and Tilly) whose relationship isn’t perfect and yet their love for each other is so strong, strong enough to unconsciously create their own language to understand each other especially when it matters most.

I was curious about the alternating perspectives of the two sisters. Roo as she does her best to help herself and her body recover from her almost fatal accident that trapped her in a locked-in syndrome (or the coma that is not a coma as the book describes) and Tilly as she tries to process her grief and guilt because she blames herself for texting her sister while she was driving.

At some point in the story though, the plot veered off to the texting-while-driving issue and it sort of diminished the essence of the story. I also have to admit the alternating perspectives dragged a bit and I had to scan a few chapters down the middle of the book just to know what finally happens. But overall, it was still a passable read and I’m glad that it ended in a very positive note.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
