All the Things We Never Said
About this deal
This book has multiple POVs and I find it very interesting because I really like books with multiple POVs.
Trošku mě mrzí, že anotace na přebalu knihy prozrazuje hodně z děje, myslím, že bych byla z akce mnohem víc překvapená, kdybych anotaci nečetla, na druhou stranu tomu rozumím, tohle rozhodně čtenáře přiláká. In this powerful debut written in three points of view, Yasmin Rahman has created a moving, poignant novel celebrating life. ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER SAID is about friendship, strength and survival. About This Edition ISBN: Casting is very good especially the daughter best friend who tries to understand what's happening and support her.Olivia. Oh my Olivia. Everything in her story was so true. Her thoughts"Who would believe me a lowly girl over a lawyer". This is so common! Read Marilyn Monroe's story, who would believe her over a grown respectable man. I wish this was talked about more, so we could bring light that it is SO SO important to listen to the victim to tell girls we believe you we love you and we protect you. The author handled this issue so well, and thank you so much for the ending. Olivia deserved it, we deserved a happy ending for her. I HOPE THAT RASCAL GOES TO HELL. We also see bits of the girl's family or especially their mothers. Their relationship with them and how their mother's have their own problems but they too deal with it differently. The way they communicate or trying to help their daughters are too different. It is honestly heartbreaking because we all know our mothers try their best to be the absolute best for their children but they too have their flaws.
But when they realise suicide isn't the only option- it isn't the right option, the course of their lives begin to change. But what can you do if you've already signed your life away? I loved the characters and I actually didn't have a favourite, I loved them all equally. The three girls personality's were all completely different, Mehreen was really smart and an amazing artist. Cara was the headstrong girl who was never afraid of getting into a fight and sometimes because she's so headstrong she would say the wrong thing that would offend people. Lastly Olivia was basically the rich, posh, popular girl with an amazing fashion sense. Of course, Jean Reno plays a huge part in the character of the father who has 6 days with his estranged daughter.Weekend Box Office Results: Five Nights at Freddy’s Scores Monster Opening Link to Weekend Box Office Results: Five Nights at Freddy’s Scores Monster Opening
Armistice Day: A Collection of Remembrance - Spark Interest and Educate Children about Historical Moments One of my favourite things about this was the depiction of anxiety. Mehreen is incredibly anxious and she calls this anxiety ‘chaos’. Very few authors have truly managed to accurately capture those intrusive thoughts that come hand in hand with anxiety. How loud and deafening they can be and how you know it’s anxiety, you know it isn’t ‘real’ per say, and yet, you can’t ever truly shut that voice off. I also really loved the importance of religion to Mehreen as a coping mechanism. So yeah, I really connected with Mehreen and I can’t even imagine how important that sort of rep is for Muslim and South Asian readers. It's not only the hurt at reading the comments but knowing the harm that those comments perpetuate, of how easily they feed into the rhetoric of hating on people like me. I wish I could have supported this book. We need more books of and by poc in UK YA (and everywhere, and with MI rep). But there's nothing that can erase the harm of those words to me. This book is about three girls who are dealing with depression and anxiety. Life seems too much for them. Especially Mehreen. She’s the main focus in this book, I suppose. As a child, she wanted to be a postwoman, but decided to settle for being an author. She has an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Hertfordshire and an MA in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University, both with Distinction.

The book has three points of view but it is easy to distinguish between them as they each have distinct voices and personalities. All three girls are struggling yet when they meet each other, even they cannot understand why the others would want to commit suicide and I thought it was so important to see that. That just by looking at someone, even if they are smiling and laughing, they could still be drowning inside. They could still be struggling to cope with everything that is happening in their life. So it’s important not to dismiss someone, just because they look okay.
More than anything, I loved her unwavering relationship with her faith. The novel begins with her standing in prayer and really captures how peaceful the act is for many Muslims. This feeling of tranquillity juxtaposed with Mehreen’s Chaos was a particularly powerful image. I also loved the conflict she faced in justifying suicide when it goes against the teachings of Islam.Olivia appears to have the perfect life. She's from a wealthy family, she's sociable, she's kind... but that's all she lets on. Underneath the faultless costume her mother has constructed, Olivia is a victim of sexual abuse. And her abuser is moving in next week. It's well written, it's believable and real, I love that the author emphasize the importance of not only professional help but also of healthy relationships and open conversation within friends and family.
