by Hannah Harrington (Goodreads Author)
Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.
Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she's ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.
But there's strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she's done. If only she can forgive herself.
Wow! What a powerful book. When I think back to my highschool days I hated almost every moment of it. Hannah Harrington captures the emotions of the good and bad parts about the highschool experience.
For Chelsea she has to learn the lesson the hard way but by doing this she finds herself on a journey of self discovery which has way more benefits then the superficial life that she was living.
The ability to find who you truly are is a gift and thankfully through the beauty of true friends of Sam, Asha, Andy, Noah and the preciousness of silence Chelsea is able to do this.
When I was reading I felt I was living Chelsea's vow of silence with her. Every time I had to talk I felt like I was violating the vow somehow.
Great book 5 thumbs up!
