    About "Chris Struyk-Bonn"

    1. Chris Struyk-Bonn

      I live in Portland, Oregon, even though I am originally from Iowa I ve been in the Pacific Northwest for so long that I can hardly claim to be a midwesterner any My family keeps me pretty busy and on my toes I have two boys who have decided that it is their goal and ambition in life to make my days as difficult as possible We have soccer balls in every room, we have darts stuck to every window, and my cats are losing fur in clumps because of the teasing they must endure.I love cats I have three of them and one of them is about twenty pounds I have been trying to figure out how to help him lose some weight, but he is just not interested, and the treadmill has not been working.Reading and writing young adult literature is a favorite past time of mine I try to keep up on trends in YA, and find myself astounded by some of the amazing novels that are available for teens I am thrilled to see my own book in print and hope that you will let me know what you think of Whisper.

    1. Whisper has a cleft palate In this young adult dystopian tale, she and other deformed children are cast out of society because of their abnormalities.This story is about how she survives and holds her new family, made up of other rejected children, together despite obstacles at every turn.Whisper was a far darker story than I expected.Terrible things kept happening to Whisper and I kept telling myself that it would turn around soon And it didn t.If she wasn t running from someone who was trying [...]


    2. This has been sitting on my shelf for a few months and I wish I had read it sooner because I just adored it At first it feels like the usual YA dystopian fare, this time with the outcast society of deformed people, with children, especially girls being abandoned at birth Our narrator is an older teen girl, on the brink of womanhood, with a cleft palate being raised in a camp for outcast children way out in the woods, with only a couple of others and an elderly caretaker I fell in love with the m [...]


    3. I don t usually write reviews, but for this book, I needed to I ll admit that I am somewhat biased because I know the author However, even if I didn t, I would highly enjoy the book.The book is centered around Whisper, a reject with a cleft palate The circumstances of their world are not made known, although there are hints about why there are so many children with deformities Whisper is not a character who is meant to take down governments and save the world she is meant to simply live and disc [...]


    4. I love a book in which you feel that you re in masterful hands WHISPER is just such a book The author grabs you and reels you in to the world she s created right from the first page Lyrical, full of meaningful detail, WHISPER is a book that stays with you.As other reviewers have noted, WHISPER lives in a not too distant future in which people considered rejects are abandoned And, yes, she goes through a lot of painful things I once read a quote that said that we read books to feel things If you [...]


    5. Ah yes, another YA dystopia I m not complaining I love this genre, and am pleased there are so many books populating it First I have to do the special ed professional thing You can skip this if you don t care As a professional who works with children with special needs, it was pleasant to see people with orthopedic differences featured prominently in a novel, especially a YA novel The author writes them as one would write any young adult character, as well she should and I hope the readers recog [...]


    6. Just finished this lovely novel Whisper, born with a cleft palate, lives with other societal rejects in a small compound deep in the forest The world Whisper lives in is modern but harsh and unforgiving, but her home in the forest is ideal, if boring Then Whisper s father comes to claim her, hoping to force her to do the work her mother did to take care of the rest of the family, and Whisper finds herself torn from the only home she s ever known.I loved the narrative, the descriptions, everythin [...]


    7. My overall impression of this book was that it was very depressing I had a hard time enjoying it for that reason, especially because I felt she had very little hope, even in the end It was an interesting story, however.


    8. This was an enjoyable, fast paced read I started it New Year s Eve and spent a decent chunk of New Year s Day curled up on the couch finishing it this is my ideal way to ring in a new year, for the record Brief intro to the tale The main character, Whisper, is born with a deformity cleft palate in a not so distant dystopic future and is sent to a camp in the woods to live with other damaged children She receives a violin, which becomes a crucial part of her story and a way for her, a girl who ch [...]


    9. Whisper definitely had a really touching storyline I was disappointed with how slow it seemed to be, especially in the beginning It was like I just couldn t get through the first half or so.I was a little confused on the timeline of the book.Even with those small disappointments, I did really like how Chris Struyk Bonn conveyed to the readers the struggles that real life people can face who are going through these situations and battling with their image I enjoyed the ending of the book how Whis [...]


    10. I won a copy of Whisper through First Reads I requested it because I enjoy near future dystopian YA Whisper wasn t what I expected, but I liked it anyway.First off, there s nothing futuristic about this book They have no technology that s currently unavailable and their society s not all that different from what you might find in some parts of the world today Whisper is less near future dystopia than present day deliberately unnamed South American country with nonexistent or unenforceable laws r [...]


    11. I was wary of this book at first was it going to be yet another dystopian young adult novel I was pleasantly surprised As I began reading, there were a number of clues that placed the novel in the United States in the near future and I felt incredulous The author describes a place where babies are abandoned because of birth defects and simple surgeries are withheld that can vastly improve a child s chance of success Children are forced to beg on the streets and live in brothels Sewage and indust [...]


    12. I admit I actually almost stopped reading this book in the very beginning because the premise is, at best, completely unbelievable and at worst, completely absurd Whisper has a cleft palate, and because of her abnormality has been sent away to live with other deformed creatures Her love interest is missing an arm Her little companion has webbed feet The newly arrived baby also has a cleft palate They trade items with a messenger, who brings back goods They hunt They find their own food They are [...]


    13. Whisper was born with a cleft palate, and like all children with disfigurements that aren t killed at birth, she is sent to live in poverty in the forest with others like her Her friend Eva has webbed feet and hands and her friend love interest Jeremia is missing part of an arm They are cared for by Nathanael, an elderly man whose only deformity is his soft spot for the unfortunate This family of rejects is getting along just fine until Whisper s father Belen, and her cruel uncle, Celso show up [...]


    14. I won a copy of Whisper through First Reads I am a huge fan on futuristic dystopian YA novels, and although this book was really in my opinion not futuristic at all, I really enjoyed it I had issues at first trying to visualize the world created in this book futuristic, no More 3rd world with technology available to others, but perhaps not to them From the summary I read pre reading I just couldn t wrap my head around the concept of outcasts living in stick and mud huts, but planes going by and [...]


    15. Whisper overall is an ok book I gave it three stars because it was a little boring throughout the book especially toward the end I didn t particularly like the end either it was kinda dull and didn t have anything special like most books do in the endings In the middle there was the same problem over and over again The problems in the book would just rotate till they were solved which I think is kinda dumb Before I sound too much like a Debbie downer I did like some parts of the book I liked whe [...]


    16. It s hard to say I enjoyed this book it s that I appreciated it and cared enough about the characters that I wanted to finish it It was just hard to read in parts because it was painful.I wavered between a 4 and 5 star because it isn t perfect, but it is awfully good with a creative story line and terrific protagonist It will be thought provoking for YA readers with regard to deformities and how we treat people with them Whisper s resilience is inspirational, and her sense of self strong I d ha [...]


    17. Holy WOW This book is definitely one that you need to read Whisper is about a girl who grew up in the forest, surrounded by others who are like her, what society of this time calls rejects Whisper was born with a cleft palate, an opening in the roof of her mouth She was nearly drowned by her father, her mother rescued her and took her to the forest, where she lives with an elderly man named Nathanael, a one armed boy named Jeremia, a girl with webbed hands named Eva, and a little girl they all n [...]


    18. SPOILERS I couldn t put this book down and when I wasn t reading it I was thinking about it I didn t give it 5 stars as is my norm when I burn thru a book so quickly based on a few details 1 The leaps were grand and happened so quickly The story could ve been longer to fill in some gaps and is would ve gladly read those extra chapters.2 Setting I had no idea if this was present day, past, future I understand that this might be a minor detail but since some of the story revolves around these defo [...]


    19. Whisper doesn t really read like a typical dystopian novel There are brushstrokes of a broken and faltering society shading its setting, but the book concerns itself almost not at all with that Instead, Whisper is an eloquent and accessible expression of what it must be like to live among people who will not see you as anything than the way you look.I ve read many books that touch on issues of prejudice and discrimination, particularly those connected with race, and this is the first one that m [...]


    20. This is such a great book Whisper was taken from her forest home and forced to be a house maid Her dad and uncle were evil Through out all of the abuse, Whisper still kept her dignity I could definitely see her developing as a character She made new friends, found love, and believed in herself I really like the ending when SHE chose to take off her veil So many people today make fun of people who have disabilities Just recently a woman decided to divorce her husband because she didn t want to ke [...]


    21. Whisper is an outcast from a society where anyone with a physical or mental disability especially girls are cast aside or killed Born with a cleft palate, Whisper lives in a forest camp with other rejects One day her father comes to claim her and takes her as his house servant She is passed from one place to another, until she finds a sort of home with other rejects in a run down building called Purgatory Palace However, after a university professor discovers that Whisper has a natural talent wi [...]


    22. I won this book on a giveaway and I seriously loved it.So Whisper isn t your everyday dystopian young adult novel Whisper is disfigured with a bad cleft but nonetheless she is beautiful The novel isn t what I would call fast paced or action filled but it hooks you with believable characters and a wonderful heroine Whisper was not perfect but that is what made her so awesome She actually grew throughout the book and she took you right along with her In a time when the focus for young girl s role [...]


    23. Whisper is a defining tale of the human condition I thoroughly enjoyed reading Whisper The characters were realistic and connected to the emotions Whisper tells a story of a girl who lives life as a servant because of her physical deformities The book expertly reflects real world conditions both literally, and metaphorically in the case of racism The author is to be commended for their poetic descriptions of the world, from the point of view of a girl living in a world where she doesn t belong I [...]


    24. A young girl born into a society where disability is seen as a curse Living with other rejects Whisper is thrust into a life where she must make moral choices for the direction her life goes and survive by any means necessary I enjoyed this YA book a lot, the scenes changed often enough and held my interest so that I wanted to keep reading and not put it down I wish the author had gone into the reasons for the dystopian society, she touched on them but just barely making me curious in the end [...]


    25. I really liked this book The character and the story were refreshingly different from the typical futuristic story And what happens in the story is not all that different from what is happening in some parts of the world Its definitely a feel good story because sometimes I thought that there were some unlikely good things that happen to the main character, and then you feel badly that the other characters in the book didn t a good thing as well But then at the same time that s how the world work [...]


    26. This book was very captivating.Its a story about a young girl.A reject who needs to find herself in a world full of people who hate things that are different All she has is her music and a few special friendships Although this wasn t my favorite book I enjoyed it a lot.It is very well written I love how the author uses strong words and imagery to make you feel what the main character is feeling.I wouldn t recommend this book to anybody 13 and under because it does contain some mature matters.


    27. I loved this book It was beautifully written with great characters They were realistic and far from perfect The auther did not end this book with a happily ever after, she simply emplies life gets better Chris is a wonderful descriptive auther who has a lot of talent and I look forward to reading books by her Whisper is neither perfect, nor pretty, but she is a great character I highly suggest this book as a must read, for it is one of those thought provoking books that change the way you think [...]

Whisper by Chris Struyk BonnAnyone that is considered a reject must either be killed or sent to live in camps Abandoned and living in a woodland camp all because of her cleft palate, Whisper is left alone with 3 other rejects and her caregiver, Nathanael Being in this harsh and unforgiving world she must endure and find her strength in order to survive When Whisper is taken away from her encampment to live in her brutal father s care as a house servant, music turns out to be her only escape This [...]



    29. This story, set in a future world, has a pioneer feel to it Whisper lives in a time when an over abundance of children are being born with deformities These children are abandoned and mistreated When Whisper finds her true gift in music, she has to decide between a fulfilling new life or a lifetime of struggles with her only friends This intriguing coming of age story will appeal to girls ages 12 and up.
