The Sound of Letting Go by Stasia Ward Kehoe

Into the Wild

Read The Sound of Letting Go Online Free - For sixteen years, Daisy has been good. A good daughter, helping out with her autistic younger brother uncomplainingly. A good friend, even when her best friend makes her feel like a third wheel. When her parents announce they’re sending her brother to an institution—without consulting her—Daisy’s furious, and decides the best way to be a good sister is to start being bad. She quits jazz band and orchestra, slacks in school, and falls for bad-boy Dave.

But one person won’t let Daisy forget who she used to be: Irish exchange student and brilliant musician Cal. Does she want the bad boy or the prodigy? Should she side with her parents or protect her brother? How can she know when to hold on and when—and how—to let go?

Tell me how is the sound of letting go? Tell Taylor Swift. She might write about it for her next album.

There's a quiet beauty that slowly emerges through the storytelling of Stasia Ward Kehoe. It's the kind that will grab your heart, without you even knowing it, tugging it deep and then deeper inside. For someone who is not experienced with novels in verse, I was a bit hesitant if I'd really conne...

Verse novels are my favourite things to read, but they're difficult to review. I never know what to say, because I feel like I can never give the sparsely written, yet more often powerful novels, their due justice. The Sound of Letting Go, though beautiful in its own right, had me conflicted. On...

The writing and the story was lovely- heartbreaking and hopeful towards the end. The depiction of an autism family was well-done, insightful for those who are in the dark about the dynamics of such a family, but I didn't really get the MC's actions. I empathized with her feelings of confusion whe...

This book wasn't great. Really, it wasn't good. While one is brought to think that the MC's struggles with her brother Steven are the focus, the whole thing honestly feels like an afterthought. Daisy has little to no personality and seems to completely change herself whenever a boy looks at her....

The relationships between her parents were so incredibly written. Especially between Daisy and her mom. It's always ha...

It’s immensely satisfying when an author can dazzle you just as much with her sophomore novel as she did with her debut novel. There is no sophomore slump to be found in Stasia Ward Kehoe’s The Sound Of Letting Go, a read that feels as though it’s from the heart. Kehoe captures human emotions so...

This is definitely a controversial and difficult topic. I don't think a verse novel is the appropriate means for going about it. I think I would have taken more from it if it was a developed novel. There were too many characters we were meant to connect with but couldn't because they didn't have...

This is hands down one of the best books I have read in a great while.

What do you say after you've read a book that has so much truth and meaning in it that it feels like a tide just washed you over? When i got this book I didn't have much hope in it in fact, all i was was intrigued by the plot. I mean being good all the time comes easy to others because you are s...
