    1. 4 stars! Another Dina silver book that I enjoyed. I've bee in love with this authors writing since I read "kat fight" and when I saw that this book was YA I knew I had to read it. This book right here, is the reason why I still love reading YA. "Whisper if you need me" is a wonderful, sweet, and heartfelt story of Jack/Julia, two teens that meet at camp. Filled with drama and that sarcastic humor that I enjoy and of course a bunch of hormonal teenage girls trying to get the attention of the hand [...]

    2. Miss Dina Silver nails it again in her first YA novel!! This is such a genuine coming-of-age story that is believable and relatable. You know a novel is good when you love even the minor characters. Dina- please tell me you will continue Julia and Jack's story?!? THIS CANNOT BE THE END. I highly recommend this book.

    3. No one can protect me, except for me.Passing time alone in the dark was like waiting for a train that would never come, standing at the platform with no clock and no other travelers. It was just you and the uncertainty of whether you’d ever make it out of there or not. *cue nostalgic forest gust*Okay, first of all, I'm blaming Whisper if You Need Me for my sudden urge to camp out in the middle of the woods with nothing but a journal, pop tarts, sleeping bag, and a flashlight. I also had this s [...]

    4. 3.5 starsI really loved many parts of this booke growth and finding your potential in your teenage years, living life and overcoming fears. I was just hoping for a little more humor and more of an emotional connection to the story and I felt that it was missing for me. For her first YA I thought this was well written and throughly researched and I would most definitely read this author again

    5. Julia Pearl has major trust issues. She’s never gotten over the awful night when her fashion model mother came home disheveled and she witnessed the shouting match resulting in her father telling her mom to leave and never return. That was five years ago and she still has no satisfactory explanation. In addition, her mother messed with her head with a constant litany of warnings about what disasters might befall Julia on a daily basis. Her father remarried a woman who had two children younger [...]

    6. I jumped at the chance to read this book early. I love Dina's other books.So I knew I was going to be reading something good!And it was good. But. I felt like something was missing in the beginning of this book.I know this is a YA book. But I needed more from Jack and Julia. -I needed to feel the butterflies. -I wanted to feel the falling in love. -I wanted to feel all the stolen moments between them.-I wanted to feel the struggle of them wanting to be together.I really didn't feel all that with [...]

    7. Originally reviewed at Books Etc.Dina Silver is known for her women's fiction novels but she has recently released her first YA book, Whisper if You Need Me. The contemporary novel was an absolute delight to read and Sarah Dessen fans should take note.My favourite thing about Sarah Dessen novels (yes, I know this isn't a review about one of her booksar with me here) is that the story is about more than just romance. Sometimes romance doesn't even really factor into the story. The point of the no [...]

    8. Love & Friendships Whisper if you need me is a sweet coming of age YA book about a girl named Julia who is spunky and sweet. The author really delves into the life of a teenage girl who finds her perfectly happy life turned upside down where she feels alone and abandoned. Julia reluctantly attends summer camp and actually finds herself with new friends and a lot of time to herself to reflect on her life. With the help of her new friends and a hot boy named Jack, Julia gets the courage to fac [...]

    9. It started really good, I was enjoying the description of life in the camp, the interactions with the girls, nothing about the POV of Jack about having feelings for Julia, and then out of the blue, he asked her permission to kiss her - BAM! at first I thought she was daydreaming, but it turned out to be true. I'm sure I read all the pages to lead to the first kiss, so it really, really confused me. Afterwards everything passed super fast, the almost love story was nice and sweet, but a bit unrea [...]

    10. I love it! The most beautiful book I've read this year! It's so captivating and romantic with a side of laughter (Thanks Emma!) I love the story line and the message that lies within it! I definitely recommend this book!

    11. The first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last. This book is YA, but don't let that keep you away. It's such a sweet story of first love, of loss and finding forgiveness. The story of Julia, a sixteen year old girl still trying to get over being abandoned by her mother is sent to summer camp. She is an unwilling participant and arrives with the mindset she is going to hate every minute. Her cool demeanor is thawed when she wakes up on the bus to Jack Dempsey, the older camp cou [...]

    12. DNF@37% sorry just not into it. The main girl seemed to immature to me compared to the main guy at least so far. So their relationship seemed kinda off and even at 37%, there is no talk about the main guy even remotely liking her more than a friend. In his POV, he’s just a mentor to her in a sense. Even calls her kid at the beginning, which I find creepy if he eventually will be with her.

    13. OkNot great Kinda wierd BoringNice couple but flat charactersUndrealistjcCutesyGood for 7th graders or 8th gradersNot bad

    14. Good coming of age storyEnjoyed the depth of the characters and the quality of the writing. The characters were nicely rounded out and fairly believable.

    15. I liked it. It was a quick and easy read. I didn’t like how it was like insta Love but it was a cute story

    16. Whisper If You Need Me is about one summer that will change the course of two teenagers who are finding there way. Julia Pearl is 16 years old and being sent to camp for the summer, her mother left her 5 years before and it has made Julia resistant to whatever changes that have happened like having a new step-mother with kids. At the camp, Julia meets Jack who is 19 years old and since he lost his parents at a young age, he got sent to live his uncle who runs the summer camp. As Julia and Jack f [...]

    17. What a good story. I hate how Julia had to learn about her mother and that she and Jack had to fight the feelings that they had for one another but i was so happy to see that by Christmas time they were still just as in love as they were during the summer.

    18. I jumped at the chance to read this book early. I love Dina's other books.So I knew I was going to be reading something good!And it was good. But. I felt like something was missing in the beginning of this book.I know this is a YA book.

    19. Obviously, I'm going to call this more of a YA romance because our leading lady is Julia, who is only 16. She feels misunderstood by her dad and stepmom, who send her off to a summer camp against her will, and she's determined to hate every second of it. But then she meets Emma, a fellow allergy plagued camper (Julia is allergic to peanuts and it's kind of big deal in the book), and then Counselor McDreamy, also known as Jack. As a kid who has never been to camp, or was sent away for any kind of [...]

    20. I think Dina Silver did a great job of writing this book. I have read all of her books except one and this is one of the best. I have been corresponding with her and she is awesome. Her is Dina Silver.

    21. It's my first Dina Silver book and am glad to say I would definitely read more of her books. My favorite part of this book is that the setting takes place mainly at summer camp. Dina was able to bring humor, romance, and a little mystery in this coming of age YA novel. Our main character is Julia and we first meet her at a very young age. The first few chapters set the reader up for the summer when Julia is 16. So much has happened to Julia that this summer camp becomes a very poignant part of h [...]

    22. I really enjoyed this book! It's a very sweet forbidden romance (he's her camp counselor), with lots of emotion. I think this book captured the teenage dynamic perfectly. The relationships between the girls in the story, the boy and the girl, the girl and her parents, and among the counselors were all very realistic, and captured the emotions and angst of that age just right. It brought me back to a time in my life that was equally wonderful and horrible. The author also reminded me of the power [...]

    23. I've loved all of Silver's books so far, and I think she transitioned well into the YA format. I felt like I was right there at the camp with all the kids. And as a native of Chicago, I loved all the references to the area. I think what prevented me from giving his a 5 was that there needed to be more about what happened after camp. I felt like there was a lot of build up only to have the epilogue jump a couple of months. I guess I was expecting more turmoil, or maybe that's just what I've becom [...]

    24. Another fabulous novel from the ever charming author Dina Silver. This time up to bat, Ms. Silver tackles the growing genre of Young Adult. And she hits a home run! Filled with emotion, young love, and family drama, this book takes us through a summer that we all had, one way or another. Julia Pearl is the epitome of a teenager trying to figure out her world. Her journey into her first romance helps her understand her parents complicated relationship. With just enough teen angst, just enough rom [...]

    25. I received a review copyI have been a huge fan of Dina Silver since her first novel came out, and I was very curious to read her first YA offering. As I don’t read YA on the regular, I’ll admit I was a smidge worried I might not love it. That didn’t happen. I loved it. I couldn’t put it down. I read it in a day. Wow. What a book! I love that we get the dual point of views from Julia and Jack. All the characters were very well-written and felt like real people. I was easily drawn into the [...]

    26. If you like summer camp books with a little romance, a lot of girl drama and some family issues, you will fall in love with this book. The story line is a bit predictable with a good looking guy at camp, a young camper falls in love and a couple of mean girls cause trouble. Dina Silver adds some interesting elements to keep your attention. The characters are interesting and relatable. I would recommend this to a young adult reader with the warning of some foul language - not excessive, but also [...]
