My Review Of The Quiet You Carry By Nikki Barthelmess



I would like to thank NetGalley and Flux/North Star Editions for presenting me with an advanced ARC of The Quiet You Carry by Nikki Barthelmess for my honest and unbiased review.

Nikki jumped right out and grabbed me with the first page of her book. Victoria’s father throws her out of their home she shared with him, her step-mother, and her step-sister Sarah in the middle of the night in the bitter cold with no coat, no shoes, just the clothes on her back. Victoria ends up at CPS to sleeping on their couch until morning comes and they can put her into the foster system.

Nikki brings us a story with a subject that nobody likes to hear about, not alone talk about it or read about it. Nikki had quite a bit of knowledge of how well the foster system operates being a former foster child herself. She captured all the characters and Victoria’s story so vigorously that came out in a heart wrenching and heart breaking story that you will not soon forget.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would highly recommend The Quiet You Carry, but know that you may get angry, cry, and maybe even have to put it down sometimes. However, when you are done you will be glad you picked it up and read Victoria’s story.

  1. I was accepted for an eARC on Netgalley of this book, too! I haven’t read it yet, as I plan on reading and reviewing it closer to the release date. I have heard such amazing things from other bloggers who also received ARCs of it, and I’m so excited to read it!!! Great review!
