Ndigo doesn’t know how to face life without the only person who really understands her Until suddenly she hears a mysterious voice claiming to be God insisting that if she takes Violet to a remote rock formation in the Arizona desert her sister will liveIndigo is sure she’s losing it But Violet agrees to go if their incredibly dysfunctional family accompanies them on their trek from Seattle to Arizona Indigo can barely be in the same zip code as Thanks to NetGalley for providing me a complimentary copy of THE VOICE IN MY HEAD by Dana L Davis in exchange for my honest reviewIndigo prepares to jump from a building when she hears a voice in her head claiming to be god Not wanting to live without her terminally ill twin Violet god tells Indigo her sister will live if they visit The Wave Instead of swallowing pills to die with dignity Violet agrees to take a road trip with her familyDepending on the reader’s perspective Indigo’s Voice can be seen as an auditory hallucination that of god or something else As a psychologist who interned in a state hospital I’ve known a number of people whose brain synapses misfired as delusions and hallucinations I went with the mental illness I’m also atheist which contributed to my perspectiveIndigo clearly saw herself as the lesser twin the least favorite sibling second best The chip on her shoulder was a product of her environment as well as her curious personality I enjoyed her narration Dana L Davis gave her a smart witty voice Davis created a uniue cast of secondary characters family members to the twins and an unconventional preacher wise without being religious Like most families some annoying and difficult to tolerate members drove Indigo and me the reader nuts namely her older sister MichelleWhat THE VOICE IN MY HEAD lacked in plot Davis made up for in writing and dialogue The ending while predictable was fitting YA readers love stories about twins and with such smart writing THE VOICE IN MY HEAD will certainly please most readers

The Voice in My HeadFrom the author of Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now comes an unforgettable novel about facing the impossible dealing with family chaos and making sense of everything you areFor Indigo Phillips life has always been her and her identical twin Violet The perfectly dressed gentle popular sister But now Violet is terminally ill and in a few hours plans to die on her own terms via medically assisted suicide Even though she and Violet have drifted apart lately I Hmm I’m not sure how to feel about this oneIndigo and Violet are twin sisters And one of them is dying Indigo can’t imagine lifewithout her twin so she attempts suicide but her attempt is unsuccessfulA broken arm a concussion and one voice of God later had Indigo dragging her terminally ill sister on a trip to the Wave The voice in her head tells her if she gets her sister to the wave she’ll liveDetermination and a mustard seed of faith take the family on a barely planned road trip to the Wave The Wave is only accessible by lottery Though everyone thinks Indigo’s crazy they allow the voice of God that she hears to guide themAs a believer a Jesus follower or what have you this plot thrilled me A God guided YA Count me inThe voice is a loose guide not using an all mighty all knowing lead; but using humor—the voice was the perfect companion The voice is not all at holier than thou though the reader should know it has authority Laughs and humor wrap around the sadness that encompasses this book; as the reader awaits the death that’s sure to comeThe family dynamic is solid It’s not perfect at all but it’s very realistic Trouble will follow when you’re dealing with a terminal illness There’s bound to be strain and strife as emotions are constantly running highThe buildup is the star of the story I don’t know about anyone else but my hope was high throughout the entire story I wanted Violet to live So badI couldn’t wrap my head around her dying; especially by her own handThe book brought to light the argument on medically assisted by choice suicide I don’t have a view to share but I understood both sides The book does a fairly decent though vague job of allowing the reader to get an understanding of this death There’s not a lot of growth that happens outside of Indigo’s character but you get some heartfelt family moments much like an episode of Full House would endThough it’s well written and very engaging I would have liked to spend time getting a back story on Violet But the story tries to wrap up family issues which it does towards the endI found the story relatable but I was less than pleased with the ending It’s an ode to real life but I wanted Davis is a good writer and I hope she continues to tackle black characters this way I wasn’t totally in love with this one but I appreciated this hope filled realistic tale Bring the tissues if you’re an emotional reader you may shed a tear or two
