Summary

Chloe Parker has just been uprooted to a tiny American compound in Saudi Arabia. You’d think after 14 years of being an Air Force brat, she’d be used to being the new kid, but it still sucks. At least until she meets charming, charismatic Alex and falls for him hard.

But Alex is a year older and is heading off to boarding school in Switzerland. Chloe won’t see him again for nine months, and it’s breaking her heart. She doesn’t even know if Alex likes her back until he gifts her his private binder of hand-written stories and song lyrics to remember him by. That has to mean something, right?

At long last the wait is over, and Alex returns, but he's a haunted shell of his former self. Something bad happened while Alex was away, something that killed the light in his eyes, and Chloe is determined to help him. She has to get the old Alex back.

But Chloe doesn’t know you can’t bring someone back from a place you’ve never been. All you can do is be there when they finally decide to come home.

interesting read

Chloe and Alex's story is not for everyone. They have some rough times and persevered to the end. I am glad I listened to the book until the end. The narration was done well and the story was well written.

Really enjoyed this one

so this was a ya book that started off slow and it took me a while to get into but once it grabbed my interest, it pretty much held onto it for the rest of the book. Its starts off being about a group of teenagers who meet one summer and become close friends and when summer ends, a few of them head off to boarding school when they come back they are completely different. Especially Alex, the boy Chlos is in love with. Some traumatic happened to Alex and she can't help but feel that it was something really bad and tries her best to be there for him during his difficult time. Something about him just seems so off and when he finally comes clean as to why, chloe starts to finally understand what happened to Alex. This books deals with friendship, teenage love,depression, death, a suicidal attempt, and teen pregnancy. The characters were very well written and I always enjoy when characters feel like real people. There was very good character development also and I found the story to be very well written.This book was pretty emotional at times and kind of gives you a bit of an outlook on depression and how it can take over you and how sometimes you even lose yourself and the people you care about. Overall this was a good and eye opening story. It's important to notice these types of changes in people and not ignore the alarming signs that something is wrong and off so that you help get them the help they need before it's too late.

loved it!

This is a book that I would have never chosen to listen to on my own. But I am certainly glad I did. It was so good, I loved it. Alex's story, everything he has been through. wow I couldn't even imagine! Chloe is so strong and so good for Alex. But even her bold strength wasn't quite enough to keep his demons away. This story was heartbreaking and emotional, but also so very good and happy. I would definitely recommend it!.

Thanks to audiobook obsession for giving me the opportunity to review it.

Great book about teenage love!

This book took me awhile to get into it! I just couldn’t figure out what the issue would be! However, I stuck with it and loved it! The narration was perfect also!!!

I Enjoyed it

She Doesn't Know was a sweet, easy read and I enjoyed it. This YA novel was a bit emotional and heart-aching at times however it had the best ending. Its a story about young love and dealing with grief. Although suitable to a younger audience, the story held my interest until the end.
It was narrated by Amanda Stribling, whose voice was perfectly suited to the character. Her words were clear and distinct and I had no problems listening to her narration.
This was a great story and I would highly recommend it for the YA lovers who are looking for a tamer storyline with less heat.

What didn't she know?

This story was told by the perfect narrator for the age range that the story dealt with.
I struggled with finding purpose of the story. I couldn't feel a connection for the two main character's. I did feel a teenage crush but not really anything more. It went into full detail about children growing up moving around for their parents military life.

I loved the last few chapters but the rest of the story felt like something was missing. I wish the story would have pulled me in more so I understood the angst that was the author was trying to relay.
