The Quiet You Carry by Nikki Barthelmess

Book Summary:
Victoria Parker knew her dad’s behavior toward her was a little unusual, but she convinced herself everything was fine—until she found herself locked out of the house at 3:00 a.m., surrounded by flashing police lights.
Now, dumped into a crowded, chaotic foster home, Victoria has to tiptoe around her domineering foster mother, get through senior year at a new school, and somehow salvage her college dreams . . . all while keeping her past hidden.
But some secrets won’t stay buried—especially when unwanted memories make Victoria freeze up at random moments and nightmares disrupt her sleep. Even worse, she can’t stop worrying about her stepsister Sarah, left behind with her father. All she wants is to move forward, but how do you focus on the future when the past won’t leave you alone?

My Review:

The Quiet You Carry was such an emotional read. I did enjoy the storyline and like some of the characters in it.

Victoria life gets turn upside when her father kicks her out of the house. Now dealing with the foster care and being unwanted, she has to start her life over. Starting a new school in the middle can be tough, especially when she hiding from her past. When the past has a way catching up to her, will she be strong enough to face it?

This book deals will a sensitive subject of abuse. I thought the book was very detailed written and connected good with the main character tough life. This book is somewhat a heavy read. If you looking for something new to read, then you might want to pick up The Quiet You Carry.
