Silencing Joy

Rated 4.50/5 based on 2 reviews
I scream. I couldn’t help it. I jump up and whack my head on the bottom of a bleacher. My hand flies immediately to the lump forming. I start running while bent in half. I try to get out.
I don’t.

Review by: Cynthia humor on Feb. 25, 2014 :
The author tells a shocking and raw story of today world. It is shame we have come to this, sad but true. It’s a disturbing and emotionally charged book, with drugs and human trafficking, that the author put a lot of thought and time into. This book had me on the edge of my seat wondering where it would lead. As you read this book you wonder who you can trust and who you need to stay away from.

This story was on the dark side, when I read something of this nature I prefer it be true but it was a good read, with lots of twist and turns. The author will have you on the edge hanging on, wondering where she will take you next. It is a very fast paced with characters that make you happy you are home in your safe house with the biggest worry you have is how to pay your bills.

This book will keep you entertain all the way through to the end. This book in action packed and well written, is it believable? Just pick up a newspaper I am sure you will find something of this nature in it. Pick up a true crime and I know you will find something very close to this book.

Review by: Jonel Boyko on Dec. 22, 2013 :
Rachiele has a very personal and personable writing style. She tells a vividly raw and shockingly real story that you can’t help but get caught up in. This story is very emotionally charged. It’s cool & disturbing all at the same time. Her descriptions, as well as her storytelling, are understated yet won’t let you go. The story itself had me captivated. It’s vivid without being over the top.

Rachiele flips perspective between a variety of characters. With some you’re vey engaged and caught up in the tale. With others, it’s like you’re standing on the sidelines. This adds an extra layer of complexity to the tale. You get to know all of the characters in the story without leaving anyone in the dust.

Overall, this story was exhilarating, thought provoking, & thoroughly enjoyable. I didn’t ever want it to end.

Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
