Il Southport Guardian Southport, 19 dic. Sentirti viva! E forse, o morte, non venuta al mio richiamo delirante mi raggiungerai nel fervore del ripreso canto, troncherai nella mia gola il canto, un giorno chiaro Amo quel bimbo ch'era solo.

Add to that a very enticing blurb, and it won me over, so I requested it. The story follows and is told by year old Leo. Reading from his perspective was a quart amusing, and annoying and just plain tiring for the rest of the way.
Leo is really immature though he pretends to be all-knowing. Given, he does grow a bit by the end of the book, but not by much. He claims to be in love with her, but the most interaction the two has shared were just smiles as they pass each other in school hallways. There was this one scene that really made me stop reading for a while.
Leo, who was also confined at the same hospital as Beatrice after a scooter accident, goes to visit the girl. It actually made this short book seem longer. I almost put it down a number of times. I really wanted to like this book. This review was first published on In Between Book Pages. So, I only read 10 pages maximum back in the day and I decided I would never read this book. There's nothing wrong with it, the problem is that there exist a boy in real life that I hate that has the same name and personality as the main character in this book.
I think that's one of the reasons why I love fantasy, usually names on those books are so strange that I would never meet someone call that, therefore I wouldn't compare it with a real human. It's sad because this might be a good book b So, I only read 10 pages maximum back in the day and I decided I would never read this book. Check out this, other reviews, and more bookish things on my young adult book blog, Here's to Happy Endings! I like books that make me think. I like books that truly make me appreciate life, that make me look at the simple things around me and go "Wow, I'm so glad I have this.
White as Silence, Red as Song made me thankful that I have my family. This book has been compared to The Fault in Our Stars. Let me say first off that I haven't read The Fault in Our Stars , as I tend to try to avoid super hyped up books because I always end up being the black sheep and not enjoying it as much as everyone led me to believe I would.
Therefore, I really can't compare the two, but I did think that this book had a lot of emotional parts that will leave the reader with a lot of emotions to sort through. But while I thought that it came through for the most part, with that comparison alone I kind of expected to feel a bit more? Still, it was a really good novel. White as Silence, Red as Song is a book that I read through in one day, from start to finish, without putting it down.
It's rare that I have the ability or the motivation to do that with a novel, but this was on the shorter side and I kind of just pushed everything else off my plate and sat down to enjoy it. Every emotion is a color. While he doesn't care much for school, that all changes when a new teacher shows up and challenges the way he thinks.
At first, Leo figures he will be like all the other teachers - no one of interest that would do anything influential for his life. Only Leo turns out to be wrong, because this new teacher is about to change a lot about his life.
Beatrice doesn't pay much attention to Leo, and the two almost never talk. Until one day, Beatrice isn't in school, and Leo finds out that she has been diagnosed with leukemia. When she comes back to school, Leo is still in love with her, and wants to tell her about it, but doesn't get the chance to, as he is taken to the hospital due to an accident shortly after. However, Leo finds out that Beatrice is also in the hospital, and she isn't doing very well - her cancer has come back.
Leo uses this opportunity to get a closer look at Beatrice. He even gets up the nerve to write her a note telling her how he feels, but when he goes to deliver it to her, Beatrice is no longer in the hospital.
