The Voice in My Head by Dana Davis

Release Date - May 28, 2019

Dana L. Davis had me hooked from the first page of The Voice in My Head. Indigo is contemplating suicide when she slips and falls. To avoid being committed, she lies to her mom and tells her she was up there to get a photo for her dying twin sister. They're identical twins and Indigo cannot imagine a world without Violet there.

In her recovery, Indigo starts hearing a voice. The voice in her head claims to be God. She doesn't want to give her family more reason to think she's crazy, but the voice insists that if she and her family make a trek across states to a rock formation in an Arizona desert, Violet will live. She can't ignore the chance to save her sister.

Surprisingly, she convinces her parents, head-strong older sister, quirky preacher, younger brother, brother-in-law, and nephews to go on this bus trip together. The adventures that await them are almost unbelievable, yet it's exactly what the family needs if they want to see Violet live.

I loved this story. The voice in Indigo's head had me snickering so many times. The family's adventure was fun, but it was also touching. I teared up from time to time, laughed out loud others, and couldn't stop until I'd reached the final word. I loved it.
