Not wanting to live without her terminally ill twin Violet, god tells Indigo her sister will live if they visit The Wave Instead of swallowing pills to die with dignity, Violet agrees to take a road trip with her family.Depending on the reader s perspective, Indigo s Voice can be seen as an auditory hallucination, that of god or something else As a psychologist who interned in a state hospital, I ve known a number of people whose brain synapses misfired as delusions and hallucinations, I went with the mental illness I m also atheist, which contributed to my perspective.Indigo clearly saw herself as the lesser twin, the least favorite sibling, second best The chip on her shoulder was a product of her environment as well as her curious personality I enjoyed her narration Dana L Davis gave her a smart, witty voice Davis created a unique cast of secondary characters, family members to the twins and an unconventional preacher wise without being religious Like most families, some annoying and difficult to tolerate members drove Indigo, and me the reader, nuts, namely her older sister Michelle.What THE VOICE IN MY HEAD lacked in plot, Davis made up for in writing and dialogue The ending, while predictable, was fitting YA readers love stories about twins and with such smart writing, THE VOICE IN MY HEAD will certainly please most readers flag 3 likesLike see review Jan 12,

honest opinion Indigo s sister is dying As in, she s terminal As in she s going to die by doctor assisted suicide As in Indigo is about to be one half of a set Overwhelmed at the prospect of living without her twin, Indigo climbs a building, prepared to die, too But before she can leap, she hears a voice telling her that if she takes her sister to Arizona, she ll live Always a believer, her sister Violet agrees, and the whole family takes off on road trip to prolong what seems inevitable.This book sounded so good from the get go I m not super into religious fiction, but I approached this with the hope that it was super creative, and not preachy While there is a lot of praying and such, it didn t have the usual religious fiction feel I really enjoyed the story of Indigo and her sister, and eventually I even got into the rest of the family If I had one criticism, it would be that it felt like Indigo believed the voice she was hearing way, way too easily Although, I suppose if you re actually hearing a voice, it would be hard to be skeptical Likewise, I felt her family bought into it way too easily, although this could be explained later in the book view spoiler Violet tells her family she s going to follow through with her plan to take a fatal dose of medicine after the trip, so it could easily be seen as a one last hurrah type of thing hide spoiler There were bits that felt a little forced, like the scene with Willy May, but I did forget about that in my rush to see what would happen at the end When I got to the end, I was kind of disappointed view spoiler I admit, I wanted the voice to be right, and that violet would be healed But then, the voice never actually said she d be healed It said she d live It just felt kind of hokey that after all that, all said voice meant was that she d have an adventure I wanted her to live hide spoiler In the end, it was a pretty compelling read, that I raced through And isn t that really all you can ask from a book flag 1

heavily, stories become predictable, sound alike and content begins to lack originality I went into The Voice in My Head expecting the issues described But what I got was a story that had me hooked and compulsively reading as if Voilet s life depended on it And what a life experience it was.Voilet and Indigo are eighteen year old identical twins While they have the same DNA, their personalities could not be different Which is quite normal for siblings, but their situation is anything but normal Violet is suffering from an illness that will take her life But Violet has a choice to end her life with dignity But plans are put on hold when Indigo hears the word of God in her head This voice insists that if Voilet makes it to the Wave in Arizona, she will live Thus begins a family journey unlike anything other with the goal to save Voilet s life This books is obviously an emotional journey You get to intertwine in the family dynamics And with some heavy hearts, times can be a bit tough And this story really does portray different views and feelings on some heavy subject matter such as mental health and assisted suicide Also, when the family is already suffering quite deeply, its hard to have your own life happenings Its not a time when you want to share ways in which your life is progressing or stalling in some cases It is just an interesting insight into the life of a family with a terminal teenager Even though the family s world is crashing, the world doesn t stop And it s a cruel and tragic truth My favorite part of the book was the Voice The banter was entertaining, but the most impressive aspect of the Voice was that as a reader, I wanted the Voice to be God so incredibly bad I wanted to believe and at times truly believe the Voice was God speaking to Indigo There are certain situations where you can t question the Voice being authentic Other times, you have the biggest skeptics believing so in that scene you give in and believe too I love the way Davis incorporated the Voice and how she left the Voice up to the reader I had one very minor issue with this story When the family was communicating, they talked so incredibly proper that it wasn t really believable Which if that was how every character in the story talked, it wouldn t be an issue But when the Voice is talking casual with a bit of youthful slang, it makes the younger members of the family s strict and proper English stick out a bit Overall, I would give this story a 4.5 stars rounding to 5 I can t wait to see how big of hit this story is for 2019 Thank you NetGalley and

I went in just to find out this one answer, I left feeling like I had met and shared with Violet and Indigo and their complex and fierce family The characters here are so realistic in their flaws, so true to their creation and so distinctly individual that I believe they could exist It is rare that an author can hit the right combination of plot intrigue and character development and beautiful
