From the bestselling author of Beautiful Broken Things comes a love story about the times when a whisper is as good as a shout.
Steffi doesn't talk, but she has so much to say.
Rhys can't hear, but he can listen.
Their love isn't a lightning strike, it's the rumbling roll of thunder.

she feels completely invisible. But Rhys, the new boy at school, sees

doesn't talk, and as they find ways to communicate, Steffi finds that
she does have a voice, and that she's falling in love with the one
person who makes her feel brave enough to use it.
A brilliant depiction of social anxiety, a swoony subtle love story
that creeps up on you, and meticulously researched, respectful and just
This book is not only for the quiet ones, but by JOVE how the quiet ones will adore this book.-Holly
