By Alice Oseman Paperback £7.99 for teenagers (reviewed by Elise)
“Radio Silence” is a book about friendship, trust and self-discovery. The reader is introduced to Frances, a top student who, at first glance, appears to have her entire life planned out – pass her exams, get into Cambridge, get a job. But it’s not until she meets Aled that she allows herself to consider what she actually wants. With Aled she is able to be herself and it is through their friendship that she feels able to understand herself better. Oseman’s witty narration paired with her understanding of the struggles many of her readers face regarding sexuality and identity, cause “Radio Silence” to be one of the most unforgettable books in the young adult genre.
