Some Quiet Place - Kelsey Sutton *Genre* Young Adult, Paranormal*Rating* 3.5-4*Thoughts*Some Quiet Place is Kelsey Sutton's first YA novel. It tells the story of Elizabeth Caldwell, a 17 year old living in Wisconsin who apparently survived being struck by a truck when she was 4 years old. Since then, she's apparently the only human being alive who can't feel any emotions. She's also different in that she can actually see and talk to the various Elements and Emotions like Fear, Courage, and Denial that surround her fellow classmates and family on a daily basis.She's pretty much alone in the world because her parents treat her like she's a POD person, her brother really isn't around all that much, her best friend Maggie Stone is dealing with cancer, and her ex best friend Sophia Richardson has all but turned into a mean girl who directs all her frustration and anger towards Elizabeth who takes it with a grain of salt.In many ways, Some Quiet Place is a difficult story to review without spoiling the story for others who may want to read it in the future. SQP has some extremely brutal moments which may turn people off who don't like that sort of thing. The brutality doesn't just come from one single source either. It's various sources who have their own agendas. It's also an emotional story when reading about someone who is suffering from the cause and effects of cancer and a character like Elizabeth who can't show or feel any emotional connection to the person dealing with it. There is definitely a bit of romance involved in Some Quiet Place as well. I'm sure there are those who have read that there is a 3 way love triangle between Elizabeth, Fear, and Joshua Hayes. I'm sure there will be those who will take sides on which characters should end up with Elizabeth. But, let me say this, Fear is a character who goes above and beyond the call of duty looking for the girl he fell he love with and then she disappeared without a trace.He searched high and low for 13 years looking for her truly believing that her enemies have caught up with her and done her harm. So, yes, he harasses, bothers, and tries to testing Elizabeth's emotional fortitude at each and every corner because Fear believes she is the answer to all his questions. He also finds himself protecting her from harm at the cost of his own life. Joshua is a decent character as well but I found him more of a best friend influence, rather than a love interest. In the end, it will be up to the reader to decide whether or not I'm wrong or right.Apparently, Some Quiet Place is a standalone that I don't see any sequels appearing any time soon. Yet, there is a question I have to Kelsey Sutton: What happened to "Elizabeth's" real mother? Was she really taken into safety by her father? Inquiring minds would love to know!**Update** 09/08/2013** Apparently, I was wrong in saying this is a standalone. There is another novel called Where Silence Gathers that will be told in the same universe as Some Quiet Place.**Kelsey Sutton’s follow-up to SOME QUIET PLACE (Flux, July, 2013), set in the same world of personified emotions, in which a girl wanting revenge on the man responsible for the death of her family is influenced by both Forgiveness and Revenge and must ultimately choose which path to take, again to Brian Farrey at Flux, for publication in July, 2014, by Beth Miller at Writers House (NA) *Recvd via Netgalley 03/27/2013* Expected publication: July 8th 2013 by Flux
