Description

Through the project, he was also able to have skateboards delivered to The Uganda Skateboard Union on behalf of Stacy Peralta, director of Dogtown And Z-Boys and Riding Giants and he’s previously acted as a creative consultant to Brian Wayne Transeau or “BT” (whose previous collaborators include Peter Gabriel, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and David Bowie, amongst others) on his last album, If The Stars Are Eternal, So Are You And I. Jacob Walters's dad has worked to make his son's life a living hell. But when the cute new transfer student suffers his father's wrath, Jacob must make the hardest decisions of his life. I know that at least once, if not several times, someone you knew woke up in the middle of the night thinking of you and wondering what became of you.

Skylar’s parents were super sweet!!! There aren’t a lot of people who would want to adopt a gay, non-verbal boy who wears skirts. They’re probably the most understanding adoptive couple out there, and I would’ve loved to see the development of their relationship with Skylar. Unfortunately, though, Skylar was just adopted at the start of the book, so we never actually got to see their bond being formed, which in my opinion was a wasted opportunity.The project, which has proven incredibly popular across the world and gone on to become a best selling book, has also afforded him numerous exciting opportunities, including an invitation to dinner with the US Ambassador to South Africa, Donald Gipps as a consultant on digital development within South Africa, and a speaking spot at TEDx Johannesburg. Basically, Skylar and Jacob meet….. and feel this immediate attraction to each other… 🙄 Like… Okay. I get it. Sometimes you see a pretty person and you think they’re attractive. Sure. I wouldn’t have minded if they simply found each other hot and later, once they actually got closer, they fell in love. That’s not what happens, though!!! What actually happens is they start liking each other immediately. Like, they literally speak 3 times (and not even about themselves! They know nothing about each other!!) and already have a crush and want to kiss…????????????

First of all, y’all never discussed it, so of course Jacob isn’t 100% sure if you’re officially boyfriends or not, and secondly, you’ve been dating for 2 weeks, and you only started talking 1 month ago!!! Of course he isn’t sure he’s in love, you barely know each other!!!For starters, we rarely see any nonverbal characters in media, so having one being the main character of a YA LGBT romance is huge! I can’t speak for the accuracy, but I can say I really liked seeing this specific disability portrayed, and I hope to see more nonverbal rep in the future! Jacob: Living in a homophobic household is hard and having the courage to come out. Like Sky, there’s a lot Jacob struggled with. He knew that his actions would have consequences. Not only at school, but especially at home with his dad. Regardless of it all, he pushed forward and took a stand for what he felt was right.

Firstly, the amount of pop culture references. It’s realistic that teens bring these things up in conversation, but honestly they served no purpose and just seemed cringy. I've said all I wanted to say, so I'll close out with one of my favourite passages from the collection: Every Word You Never Said is a Queer YA romance between two boys navigating high school, their feelings and first relationship while dealing with negativity from small-minded people. Filled with loving parents, supportive friends, bookshop hangouts, corn maze kisses and figuring out life one step at a time. Remove the ‘issues raised and booktok abuse’, this was a nice slow read for me. I enjoyed the banter, foot in mouth and digs at each other. I enjoyed the fact it was an accurate, age appropriate representation over anything And for about 80% of the book, it nearly did. Jacob and Skylar were well written, well crafted, characters. Both have minor issues, both have wonderful personalities, and both have positive and supportive friends. If anything, for the first 80% of the book, I thought I was in for a pleasant, no drama beyond what we see coming, type of story. I enjoyed the presentation of the language barrier between the two protagonists. And, although I think of myself as an old gay cuss, I loved the crossing of the gender line with regards to how we all are free to dress how we wish. So far so good.I don’t read a lot of poetry because I don’t have the patience to stop reading and dissect whatever the poet is trying to say. So when I read, I generally gravitate toward novels instead, as I love to be entertained. This poetry collection called me though, and I couldn’t resist reading it right away. This book is riddled with harmful unchallenged stereotypes. Jordon Greene's main characters say shitty and offensive things, and for what? To seem cool and interesting? You don't get a pass to be racist, misogynistic, ableist, and slut-shaming because you're gay. Sensitivity readers exist to call you out for this, but either one wasn't used or the first few drafts of this were rough. Every Word You Never Said" is a gay YA contemporary romance following the dual POV of Skylar and Jacob. Skylar is a gay adopted nonverbal 16 year old who just started a new school. Jacob takes up the task to show Skylar around the school on his first day.
