I Go Quiet

DUE IN MARCH 2020: David Ouimet’s I Go Quiet left me breathless.  In an eerie industrial dystopia buzzing with activity, a timid girl struggles to be heard.  Alienated by a world that asks her to be something she’s not, she finds solace and connection through reading.  The pain of silence goes away in a place where she’s included, where she’s important, where she’s free . She realizes that the world outside of books could be like that, too.  The end rings with hope for the day when she will finally find the courage to speak. Recommended by Mary
