Huge thanks to Pantera Press for allowing me to read Whisper by Lynette Noni in exchange for an honest review.
“Lengard is a secret government facility for extraordinary people,” they told me.
I believed them. That was my mistake.
There isn’t anyone else in the world like me.
I’m different. I’m an anomaly. I’m a monster.
For two years, six months, fourteen days, eleven hours and sixteen minutes, Subject Six-Eight-Four — ‘Jane Doe’ — has been locked away and experimented on, without uttering a single word.
As Jane’s resolve begins to crack under the influence of her new — and unexpectedly kind — evaluator, she uncovers the truth about Lengard’s mysterious ‘program’, discovering that her own secret is at the heart of a sinister plot … and one wrong move, one wrong word, could change the world.

To be quite honest with you, I had such high hopes for Whisper. I’m slightly irked by the fact that for the most part Whisper was your typical YA Dystpoian story. Except, Whisper takes place in Australia. The build up to everything and to who Jane Doe really was, was quite the tale, but after that half way point…things just went downhill for me.
Some things that I don’t like about Whisper is that halfway through the story the plot became kind of predictable. The bad guys came into the fray and thus made the storyline muddled, blurring the line between necessary “good,” and “evil.” Another thing that I didn’t like about Whisper was that Jane is interested in one guy, but then was also attracted to the “bad guy,” which was just completely predictable. Having said that…
I do love the characters, although I won’t go into detail about specifics. Each are their own unique person and they’re so themselves that they felt real to me. Their personalities really shine off the page.
A good thing about Whisper was that it was a fast read. Both in how easy it was to read, and how fast the plot of the story went.
By the end: I wasn’t surprised how Whisper ended. Though the ending while good and entertaining, was quite standard for a YA Dystopia story honestly.
I give Whisper, 2 stars.
