Publisher's Summary

For 11 years Oakley Farrell has been silent. At the age of five, she stopped talking, and no one seems to know why. Refusing to communicate beyond a few physical actions, Oakley remains in her own little world.
Bullied at school, she has just one friend, Cole Benson. Cole stands by her, refusing to believe that she is not perfect the way she is. Over the years they have developed their own version of a normal friendship. However, will it still work as they start to grow even closer?
When Oakley is forced to face someone from her past, can she hold her secret in any longer?
UK native Natasha Preston grew up in small villages and towns. She discovered her love of writing when she stumbled across an amateur writing site and uploaded her first story and hasn't looked back since. She enjoys writing NA romance, thrillers, gritty YA and the occasional serial killer.

Any additional comments?

I don't usually quite reviews but I take issues this today. I have ADD and to say that I sat down and actually read the whole series in as many days as there are books says a lot. But I love audible and I wanted the audio books to go with my kindle ebooks. As I was listening for the first time and following along in the book I noticed at first a word left out.... Then a couple works at a time.... Then sentences... And finally whole chapters. I HATE buying abridged audio. So I don't do it. I like the whole story boring plots and swear words and all. It's how the author intended it and I get more from it. I might have not bought the book if I'd known it was abridged or I might have sucked it up with no other option being available. But to tell us the recording is unabridged when I can pin point exact story lines and introduction of points of views missing is just wrong. I wanted to hear Cole's perspective after her not responding to his text in chapter five but instead the original chapter six was cut out and Cole's perspective doesn't happen until chapter 20! Everything was rearranged... But why? It didn't make the story better or much shorter... It's still nearly 8 hrs ... I so often don't actually sit down and read the books I listen to and I would have be bummed to unknowingly missed story lines...

Ps Kudos on narrator choices I really like them and I'll definitely listen to more of theirs in the future.
