The Infinite Noise by Lauren Shippen is another one of those books I picked up in November at the ALAN Workshop that it’s taken me more than half a year to get to. One thing I thought was pretty neat (and I didn’t find out until I was about halfway through the novel): The Infinite Noise is based on a podcast called The Bright Sessions. It ran from 2015 to 2018.
The Infinite Noise is told from two perspectives: Caleb, who is a football playing, bully punching, full-of-feelings kind of guy; and Adam, who is an observant, quiet, I’ll-just-sit-over-here-alone kind of guy. It’s about managing adolescent feelings, depression, and savior-ism.
