If you have a sister, or a friend who feels like a sister, you know how special they are. The Secret Language of sisters is a book about two sisters who are opposite, Roo, the older and popular one, and Tilly, the younger and less popular one. This book is by Luanne Rice, and is a New York Times’ best seller.
The story starts off with Roo being late to pick up Tilly, although Roo is never late, she had to take a few more beautiful pictures of the scenery. Tilly is highly impatient, and continuously texts her. Roo becomes distracted, and swerves off the road to avoid a small dog. Her car flips into the river.
One text that changed Roo’s life forever.
Roo was diagnosed with locked in syndrome. She can’t talk, move, or show any sign that her brain is fully functioning. She is just screaming for someone to hear her.
Tilly feels guilt and sadness. She was the one who texted Roo, and know both Roo and Tilly have to live with two types of pain. Although they don’t know if medicine can cure this type of pain.
I rate this book an eight out of ten! I read this book over and over again. I recommend this book eleven and up, for there is a few scenes of kissing, but other than that it is fine. I love that book, and helps you appreciate the small things in life you don’t always think about.
