I recently read and reviewed The Quiet You Carry and it was such an emotional and hard hitting book. The next book, Quiet No More, releases in October and I’ve already started reading this one. I’m still working on it, so my review will be posted soon. So today on my spot of the book tour hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours I want to tell you what this book is about and give you information about the giveaway!
Once again, there are some trigger warnings that you need to be aware of: domestic abuse and sexual abuse.
Quiet No More
Publishing Date: October 13, 2020
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
College freshman Victoria Parker is trying to move on with her life after surviving sexual assault by her father and six months in foster care. She’s focusing on the positives–attending college, living on her own, repairing old relationships and making new ones, and getting involved with an abuse survivors activist group on campus. But everything’s thrown into disarray when a strange woman shows up, claiming to be Victoria’s aunt and asking Victoria to lie about what happened to her. With her father’s sentencing in a few months, she’s nervous about having to share the truth of what happened with a judge. She’s not even sure if she has the strength to go through with it. But when her fellow club members begin pressuring her to speak out, Victoria has to decide how to share her story while remaining true to herself.

Nikki Barthelmess isn’t afraid of the harder subjects and definitely has me feeling a lot. I was definitely angry while reading and I wanted to talk about this book. Keep an eye on the blog, because my review for this book will be online in the near future!
