I’d love a cup of coffee. I wish she knew how pretty she was. I wish I could drop this kid in the dryer sometimes. I just want her to be happy. I hope she didn’t find out what Ben said about her. I wish I knew how many calories were in a bite of muffin…
Joy is used to hearing Whispers. She’s used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people’s deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good, to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people’s lives—especially Joy’s—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears a frightening whisper from Jessica’s own mind, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own.
Maybe my expectations were too high. Maybe I just had too much on my mind. Maybe it just wasn’t what I hoped. Whatever the reason, I didn’t really like this book.

The plot moved at a snails pace. 100 pages in and NOTHING had happened. I liked the idea of Hearing Whispers but not enough to like this book. Joy was the number one reason why I didn’t like this book. She was just plain annoying. She was self centered and whiny. Shall I go on?
All in all I liked the concept of the book but just not the book. I really wanted to like it. I did! But it just didn’t happen.
