Review: I Have No Secrets - Penny Joelson

I Have No Secrets

Review: I Have No Secrets - Penny Joelson - November 2019

Jemma's older foster sister Sarah has gone missing and so has her best friend next-door neighbor Ryan. Neither has been seen for a while and no-one but Jemma knows the truth. The thing though is that Jemma can't tell anyone as she can't talk, she has cerebral palsy which is why the killer confided in her as he knew his secret was safe.  During I Have No Secrets, Jemma also is getting to know her twin sister who was also adopted out but unlike Jemma - Jodie wasn't born with a disability and she reminds Jemma what she could have been if she was born normal. The girls have a rocky start but once Jodie comes around the girls start to bond. I really felt for Jemma in this case as it was like everyone she cared about was abandoning her. Jemma's new family also recently fostered Olivia who has been stealing and threatening Jemma if she tells.  What will happen though when Jemma is given a once in a lifetime opportunity to try out a new machine which will be able to become her voice? Soon none of the secrets she has been keeping is safe and Jemma finds herself in danger as no-one wants their truths to be revealed. This was a good YA mystery but also shone a light on fostering, adoption and disabilities.
