The Voices of Silence. Before she knows it, everything in thirteen-year-old Flora Popescu's life has changed. Her parents, her best friend Alys, and the restricted life she has always known in their Bucharest tower block are distanced from her – and Daniel, the mysterious new boy at school, seems to be the cause. Millionaire porn-king Anthony Carl has gathered a group of people together for a fourth of July party in New Jersey. Among them is the British photo-journalist Barbara Rowe, who finds herself drawn into unexpected sympathy with Annelisa Kaye, Emperor magazine's most celebrated sex-goddess.

And in the silence, the absolute silence, I could eat and eat, and never feel sick. Later I’d change the dream so that there was a banana tree in the middle of the island as well. I knew what paradise meant, even if only in my dreams. Anyway, when all that was done the Monster told us to make Daniel Ghiban welcome, and then stopped the whispering and staring by bringing his hand sharply down on the table, and telling us to open our maths books. That was it for the rest of the morning, and I couldn’t even twist round and see ��. � because Ghiban had been put immediately behind me.

When I started this book I could not put it down. It was exciting, sad, always interesting. The story centers around the revolution in Romania in 1989 and the life of a 13 year old and her friend and how the political events of the time affect their lives. Unforgettable.

This was great suspenseful novel. Romania's troubles were so clear and the character developement was outstanding, the way Flora begins the bookas a child and ends the book as an adult.

I never liked to read until I read this book. I couldn't put the book down for one second! This book takes place in Romania in 1989.Romania is under ditatorship.
It seems that no one under stands Flora, her best friend is giving her the cold shoulder and her parents are keeping something from her. It seems that the only one who understands her is Danile Gibons, but something seems odd about him.He gets luxuries that other kids don't have such as chocolate,meat,and other goods.
I would recomend this book to any sixth, seventh, and eighth grader who loves historical fiction.I hope you will like this book as much I did.

It wasn't bad, I think it could've been better, but its just like the real thing. It was hard to put the book down sometimes, but others I wanted to put the book down. Its a little confusing. I like the Character Alys, I don't know why, she sort of represents me in a way.

The heroine of the story is coming to terms with her own understanding of adulthood in a vile and destructive society. She had been brought up to distrust everyone and was trying to work out who she could have as a friend. Unfortunately she chooses the wrong person. The fear that everyone in Romania felt under the dictator Ceausescu is well shown in this book. It was a period when even a bar of chocolate was seen as a luxury. Children in the UK and in the US will find it hard to believe much of the story because it is so difficult to imagine not having videos and good music and burgers and milkshakes. Remember the orphans of Romania. Their lives were literally horrific. It was better for the children at home with their parents but not that much better. A good book with a slightly unexpected ending. I wonder did they live happily ever after?
