9780986421501: The Other Side of Quiet

"A powerful story about murder and secrets in a small Utah town" - Deseret NewsKINDLE BOOK AWARD FINALISTWHITNEY AWARD WINNER - GENERAL FICTION
Mrs. Childs's creative writing students are expected to keep personal journals for self-expression. But when clues from a murder investigation cause police authorities to confiscate the students' journals, writing intended to be private is no longer. Words meant to liberate now condemn. And an innocent writing project, meant to empower students, as well as rescue Mrs. Childs from her own personal tragedy, now open deep conflicts within the class.

"A unique and richly interesting story of survival during some of the most complicated years of life; reminding us all about what is truly important." -The Book Stalker

"The Other Side of Quiet
has enough adventure and mystery to keep you turning pages, but also an underlying message of love and acceptance. This is a book that all teenagers, and parents should read. It will inspire you to believe in our youth, love them through their challenges, and leave you with a desire to be a better parent, teacher and friend." -Katie Millar Wirig, Founder of The Power of Family

I am a firm believer in classroom read alouds, alongside in-depth class discussions. This book is a perfect read aloud for middle grade and high school classrooms. Students in your classroom can learn from the students in Mrs. Childs's classroom. The Other Side of Quietbrings up questions that students today should be asking and learning how to answer. This novel will help educators to discuss otherwise difficult concepts . . . and help students come out stronger with more understanding toward others. -Brittany Boman, former teacher, Alpine School District
Venture Academy High School Creative Writing Students

"The Other Side of Quietis written with amazing craft. It portrays life and family situations that are not only relatable, but also intricately weaved into a story that will keep you reading until the very end." - Alana, age 15

"Awesome book. Such a good read!" - Josh, age 15

"An intriguing novel that can teach anyone important lessons about life and family. Tara C. Allred builds character that feel real, and that many can relate to in more ways than one, and builds suspense with a thrilling murder mystery. Reading this novel you will laugh, cry, and find a certain peace in its ending." - Berea, age 16

About the Author:

TARA C. ALLRED is an award-winning author, instructional designer, and educator. She has been recognized as a California Scholar of the Arts for Creative Writing and is a recipient of the Howey awards for Best Adult Book and Best Adult Author. She lives in Utah with her husband.

Allred is also the founder of the Other Side of Quiet online creative writing group.

Review:

Savannah Childs, a ninth-grade teacher in fictional Helam, Utah, has assigned her students to keep weekly journals and has promised to never read them. She wants her students to enjoy complete freedom of expression, and the teens know their innermost thoughts are safe, in "The Other Side of Quiet." 

But when clues from a murder investigation point to Childs' class, the police department confiscates the journals. Childs is then given the difficult task of betraying her students' trust and reading their writings. Her reading shows her that although they are young, these ninth-grade students have not remained unscathed by adult problems.

Author Tara C. Allred tells this remarkable story from multiple perspectives. Although "The Other Side of Quiet" may seem like a simple murder mystery, it is so much more. Overarching the mystery of the murderer's identity, the interweaving stories of the teenagers and their teacher are what make this novel compelling and unique. The characters have stories that are easy to empathize with as they struggle with everything from the stress of living up to a parent's expectations, to bouncing between foster families, to teen pregnancy.

"The Other Side of Quiet" has a handful of mild profanities and deals with multiple issues. Infertility, murder, teen pregnancy, drug use, adoption, religion, military service and the LGBT culture all have a place in this novel. However, each subject is talked about without going into explicit detail. Faith comes up slightly in the book; several of the main characters are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and many of them struggle to live its teachings.

Allred lives in Utah with her husband. "The Other Side of Quiet" is a Whitney Awards finalist in the general fiction category and a 2015 Kindle Book Awards finalist. The Whitney Awards honor novels by LDS authors. - Deseret News
