    • I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.When I first started reading this, despite how much sympathy I felt, I just could not get myself to like Violet. I was really annoyed with her. She was very dismissive of anyone that attempted to make conversation with her, or just glanced at her, for that matter. But I can't get too upset over that. Violet has been through a lot, her remaining family isn't exactly ideal, and she is going through a big change in her life. I und [...]

There is luckily sunny spots amidst the darkness, but parts are really painful to read. For me, as a mother, Violet's feelings often broke my heart for her. I hope that my son never fells those things. Very realistically written and geared for the young adult audience. solid 4 stars.*I received a copy of this book for free from the For Love of [...]


    • I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.4.5 starsThis book was looking to be a 2 star read near the start. I struggled a great deal to like and appreciate Violet, but as it went on a lot more became clear. I do think that the start of the book needs a bit of work though, as I honestly thought Violet was an ungrateful little git for too long. This book is about mental health, abuse and family. It is about how we deal with trauma and about growing up and livi [...]


    • I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.What a poignant story about family, grief, love and new beginnings. The O'Connor family struggles with mental illness and addictions- generations of it. Ms. Blake demonstrates through her writing how this difficult subject matter affects each family member's perceptions of their part in keeping the family together and the burden of trying to keep everyone else happy, even putting others' happiness before their own. The psyche of [...]


    • The characters in this book seem like very real teenagers. They all have different problems to deal with. The main character, Violet, has to deal with moving to a new town after her father left, her mother began abusing alcohol, and her older sister attempted suicide while in the midst of a devastating depression. I like that this book referenced a lot of different music. It would make a good soundtrack! I think this book will really speak to teens.I received a free copy of this book in exchange [...]

Throughout this book I felt I was with Violet in a dark, cold cave on a roller coaster ride. I just wanted to wrap my arms around Violet and assure her this ride would end with brightness at the end. Thank you Birdie Blake for your writing style with this novel.

    • I didn't realize how much I loved this book until I was nearly done with it. I couldn't put it down. From the second I started reading yesterday, I hated not being able to read it nonstop to the end. I woke up and read a little before I went to work, read through my hour lunch, and by the time my last break at work was ending, I had finished the book and seriously wanted to weep. I was surprised by how emotional I got over it; I had to turn my back to co-workers because I really didn't feel like [...]


    • i recieved this book from the group for love of a book for an honest review. This book is really good and heart wrenching. The author is makes us feel all different emotions throughout the whole book and handles the issues of the book very well. i recommend it


    • OMG this book gives me so much feelings! From depress to happy and then to excited and back to sad, ugh. But anyway, I love it!This book is actually depressing to read for me especially Rose's parts, every time. I kind of started to hate Rose and said to myself I will hate Rose officially at the end of the book but yeah.I feel so sorry for Violet throughout the story. It's not fair for her. Every time she starts to feel happy, Rose will be there trying to turn her to feel sad and guilty again. I [...]


    • This was very much a coming of age story where the main character was helping others get over certain issues leaving for her to end up dealing with her own.I loved the character development in this story and the premise of the book.This book did touch on certain subjects such as depression, death and a little bit in alcoholism.The main character, Violet, was easily relatable which was a great thing in a story, or at least in my opinion.She is very much a giver as she was helping her sister and o [...]


    • A Distant Voiceby Bridie BlakeEvernight TeenTeens & YAPub Date 14 Oct 2015 I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of A Distant Voice through the publisher and Netgalley:Violet Hayes has spent her life living in her Sister Rose's Shadow. She needs to make Rose happy, she's not suppose to sing or play guitar, in order to survive the year living with her Grandmother in Wandora Tennessee. Violet sees Rose as the apple of her Mothers eye, whereas she is only tolerated. Violet does her best to avoid Sa [...]


    • Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book made cry, made me smile, and in the end, it left me absolutely crushed.When I started reading I thought that this story sounded really familiar. It was way too similar to that Sandra Bullock film Hope Floats, only instead of a little girl, now is two teenage daughters. Luckily, I kept reading, because this book proved to be so much more than that (and something else completely).The main chara [...]


    • I received a free e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Violet is struggling to come to terms with her dad leaving her mum, and having to deal with her mum and sister's depression. After moving to her famous grandma's house she is finding it even harder to keep a balance between having her own happiness and being there for her mum and sister. With an unexpected twist, this book is definitely worth a read. I absolutely loved this book, it even reduced me to tears and that hasn't h [...]


    • Wow! This book was fantastic! The characters were well developed and the story did a great job representing and dealing with depression. There are very few authors that can so eloquently write about tough subjects like depression and suicide. Holy crap that plot twist came outta no where!! You'll have to read it to find out the truth and how well Violet handles living in Tennessee.


    • This book had me bawling at the end! I highly recommend this book! It deals a lot with depression in the family and how it hangs over and affects the whole family.
