Unspoken (Lynburn Legacy Series #1)

Unspoken - Sarah Rees Brennan You guys. I mean. This book is really, really good. It is so funny and charming. I don't have a ton to say about it until I read it again, I guess, which I'll probably do within the next week BECAUSE IT'S SO GOOD.The characters are fantastic. I mean, literally ALL of the characters are great, and they (especially Kami) have the most delightfully dry sense of humor. Kami's interactions with her parents and brothers remind me of the family dynamic in Easy A, which is so, so refreshing after all the angsty shit I've read lately.The world is built really well. The mystery works. The love story is sweet and builds completely opposite how a normal romance would, so it's refreshing and fun.I know the premise sounds dumb, but it's just executed flawlessly. Bummer about its being the first book in a series, though, because we're left with a cliffhanger that I'd rather not have to sit on for the next two years or whatever it takes to write a second novel.
