Kids these days.

This is Alice Ossman's first book, and she was only 17 when she wrote it (and basically, she was born after I graduated from university), so it's no wonder I don't like it as much as I like her book Loveless. Loveless is wonderful. It feels the feels… and it’s one of her more recent books.

Imagine having a high school teacher who looks like Alan Rickman! Apparently that has a quite different connotation to someone young enough to be my daughter, as opposed to someone close to my age. See the 1990s film adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, and you'll understand. Probably.

"Everything in this room is pink and black and if it were a person it'd be a Kardashian on a middle income (p. 94)."

I feel like "Radio Silence" has some good messages that 15-17 year old's will be able to pull from and appreciate. Messages like be yourself, even if you stand out; be caring to your friends and look out for them; not all parents are good parents; and the "normal" graduate high school and go to college path isn't the path for everyone. Good stuff. A little watered down at points, but all things that are clearly said. Frances was a relatable main character in many ways, and I truly think teens would be able to connect with her. She worries about school, has anxiety, feels like she has 2 selves (one for school, one for her "real" self), and goes through friendship ups and downs.

The writing style itself is pretty poor. Everything is stated: "I walked over to him. I put my hand on his shoulder. He looked sad. I wondered what was wrong." Not an exact quote but that's the style it's in. It's incredibly bland at points and lacks imagery. I was pretty bored of it around the 150 page mark.

Also, this book just kept GOING. I thought there was going to be more plot to this, but it's really just a story of friendship stretched over several terms of school with lots of teenage drama stuff mixed in. It's too many pages with not enough substance. It's just lacking in a steady driving force- this novel is more like a Hallmark channel movie for teens rather than a fully engaging film.

I was super eager to read this because of all the people who said it's like "Welcome to Night Vale" in YA book format, but it's not. There's hints of WTNV in the podcast moments, but overall, this isn't about the podcast. It's about teens learning to grow and love one another, and getting through difficult moments of life.
