"For two and a half years, Subject 684 --- 'Jane Doe' --- has been locked underground in a secret government facility, enduring tests and torture. In that time, she hasn't uttered a single word. Not even her real name. Jane chooses to remain silent rather than risk losing control over the power within her. She alone knows what havoc her words can cause. Then the authorities put her in the care of the mysterious Landon Ward, and Jane is surprised when he treats her like a person rather than a prisoner. Ward's protective nature causes her resolve to crack in spite of her best efforts to resist. Just as Jane begins to trust him, though, a freak accident reveals the dangerous power she has concealed for years. It also reveals that the government has been keeping secrets of its own. Now Jane's ability is at the heart of a sinister plot for vengeance, and she has to decide whom she will trust ... and whom she will help. Well-known throughout her native Australia, Lynette Noni creates compelling stories that appeal to devoted fantasy fans and general-interest readers alike. This novel's extended metaphor about finding --- and controlling --- one's voice and power will resonate with teens attempting to do just that. The slow-simmering romance, richly imagined world and unexpected plot twists will hook readers from the very first page."--Amazon.

Whisper by Lynette Noni tells a story about a story of the subject Jane Doe. She has been held captive for more than two and a half years. The novel is written in a first person perspective. A cool part about this book is that the author made many emphasis on the reactions of the main character in one word. The writing always kept me hooked which made me finish reading this book fast. I would give this book a four out of five. - Ria
Whisper by Lynette Noni is a novel exploring the mysterious life of Subject 684, nicknamed Jane Doe. Jane has been trapped in a government facility named Lengard for over two years, during which she has not spoken a single word. Suddenly, she is put in the care of a man named Landon Ward, someone who shows genuine interest in who Jane is. As she begins to open up, she accidentally says something. It is revealed that Jane is a “Speaker,” someone who has the ability to control the world through only her words. She discovers that she is not the only one with this power; however, she is an exceptional case in that she has no limitations. She is a “Creator,” meaning that her powers have endless potential. Lengard is actually a facility where Speakers are trained and develop their abilities for future use for the government. Jane tries to uncover the truth behind her powers, her past, and who to trust. This novel was reminiscent of books such as The Maze Runner and Divergent because of the premise: an adolescent has unique abilities/unique characteristics and is forced to use them. The beginning of Whisper was a little slow, but the plot quickly picked up after the first few chapters. Jane’s emotions are conveyed clearly and developed throughout the novel, allowing the reader to make a strong connection to the protagonist. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoyed books like Divergent, The Maze Runner, or The Hunger Games. - Dana
