review 

Dead Silent was a good read and I enjoyed Poppy’s character. She seemed a little immature, but she was also just a teenager so I could deal with that. I was told that I didn’t need to read the first book, but I do feel like I would’ve enjoyed Dead Silent quite a bit more if I had read the first one.

 

The mystery in this book started off pretty well, and I was intrigued from beginning to end. I definitely didn’t guess who the murderer was, and that is always great because I usually have a good radar for such things! I enjoyed the characters as well, especially since Poppy and her dad seemed to have some unresolved issues. It looked like these are finally going to start getting resolved at the end of this book.

 

I thought the relationship with Michael was very well written, and it seemed like they were really good for each other. I wish I could’ve seen them before they got into a relationship because the references to their friendship just seemed so adorable.

 

The supernatural element of the book did leave a little bit to be desired. It seemed like an afterthought brought in to throw a wrench in the typical mystery book. There just didn’t seem to be anything concrete about the experience so it just felt like it was half there. I would give the book 3 out of 5 stars because it was a good book there were just a few things that I felt detracted from it.
