All the Things We Never Said

by Yasmin Rahman

16-year-old Mehreen Miah wants to die.

Her anxiety and depression, or ‘Chaos’, as she calls it, has taken over her life. She joins, a website that matches people with partners and allocates them a date and method of death. She is paired with Cara Saunders and Olivia Castleton.

As they secretly meet over the coming days, Mehreen develops a strong bond with Cara and Olivia; having people who understand what she’s going through really helps. It’s not long before all three want out of the pact. But in a terrifying twist of fate, the website won’t let them stop and an increasingly sinister game of cat and mouse begins, with MementoMori playing them off against each other.

A pact is a pact, after all.

In this powerful debut written in three points of view, and partly in verse, Yasmin has created a beautifully poignant novel celebrating life. All the Things We Never Said is about friendship, strength and survival for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why, Jennifer Niven and Sarah Crossan.


A gripping, thought-provoking, sometimes shocking thriller.”
