3.5 stars - I honestly wish I could give more stars, because the message and writing style truly does deserve better.
But overall I just had a hard time getting into this story, couldn't quite connect with the characters and I just didn't get hooked.... It somehow reminded me of "Paper Towns", I felt quite similar while reading it.
However, I think this book is a great story about finding yourself, even when thinking you don't know who you are.

Radio Silence was one of the best book I’ve ever read as a geeky teenager who can relate to many of the characters in the novel, especially Frances Janvier. I did not think that anything could beat Solitaire but this one has knocked it out of the park. Thank you Alice Oseman for writing this wonderful novel!

I really love how Alice writes about friendship. It really is at the centre of most of our lives and we all need our support systems. There is also a whole lot of complicated feelings that these characters need to face and it feels so coming-of-age real. Frances + Aled forever besties 🥺 

Best book ending I have read for a while. I will definitely miss these characters. I wasn't as obsessed with Radio Silence as I was with Solitaire. It was a bit slow at some points but still really enjoyed this. Making my way through Alice Oseman's books! 

Also little cameos of Tori and Michael in this book is so cute. The fandom vibes make me nostalgic.
