A hard-hitting, stunning novel about secrets and silence—and how sooner or later the truth must be spoken
There was so much anger brewing in the child that sometimes Alicia feared for all of them. And now she had gone and done this terrible thing. This terrible, terrible thing.
Tara has lost her voice. She knows there was pain and fear but she cannot remember anything else. Now she can only answer the questions with silence. Minnie has buried her voice for years, losing herself in silence and isolation, keeping her secrets safe and her broken heart concealed. Liam finds refuge in silence; it is a place to go to when he cannot get the words out. Kate cannot speak for herself just yet. People are only separated from each other by moments, fate, and coincidence. One teenage mistake, one shocking choice, and one terrible night will lead to courage found, voices raised, and the truth finally spoken.
