Not speaking up after witnessing a horrible event lands two high school students in center for adults with special needs as volunteers. Of course this is not punishment because they foster friendships and learn about those with differences and question their own faults.
Her first book, "Say What You Will" was fabulous, also dealing with children with special needs. She gives voice to an underrepresented population with ease and grace. Her writing style flows nicely. The story is told from alternating POVs: Belinda and Emily. I like how she doesn't use Belinda, girl with special needs, as mere window dressing, giving more attention to the Emily/Lucas storyline. All the characters were well thought out and you learned a great deal about their inner motives and outer actions. Well written piece with solid narrators.

I loved this book so much. It reminded me of some situations I've been in. I have a feeling I'm gonna continue reading/listening to this book over and over again. Funny thing is, is that this book was an assignment for my English class... everyone had to choose a book to read over break and write a summary about so I just randomly picked and grabbed this one. I just loved it so much!! 💜💜💜💜💜
