Radio silence by Alice Oseman

What if everything you set yourself up to be was wrong?

Frances is been a study machine with one goal. Nothing will stand in her way; not friends, not a guilty secret – not even the person she is on the inside. Then Frances meets Aled, and for the first time she’s unafraid to be herself.

So when the fragile trust between them is broken, Frances is caught between who she was and who she longs to be. Now Frances knows that she has to confront her past. To confess why Carys disappeared…

Frances is going to need every bit of courage she has.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. I found it really rateable and felt it dealt with issues such as mental health and sexuality really well. I loved the platonic relationship between Frances and Aled and the way they helped one another. I totally understood the conflict Frances was dealing with in terms of whether she truly wanted to go to university. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars was because I felt like some of the plots, such as who was radio and the stuff between Aled and his mum, could have been built up a bit more. I also felt that the whole thing between Frances and Carys could have been a bigger thing. However, all those things aside I did really enjoy the book.
