For eleven 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?
*Silence deals with a sensitive topic and is recommended for 16+
Silence is the absence of ambient audible sound, the emission of sounds of such low intensity that they do not draw attention to themselves, or the state of having ceased to produce sounds; this latter sense can be extended to apply to the cessation or absence of any form of communication, whether through speech or other medium.Sometimes speakers fall silent when they hesitate in searching for a word, or interrupt themselves before correcting themselves. Discourse analysis shows that people use brief silences to mark the boundaries of prosodic units, in turn-taking, or as reactive tokens, e.g., as a sign of displeasure, disagreement, embarrassment, desire to think, confusion, and the like. Relatively prolonged intervals of silence can be used in rituals; in some religious disciplines, people maintain silence for protracted periods, or even for the rest of their lives, as an ascetic means of spiritual transformation...
I loved it, great book, I highly enjoyed it 55
I am total girl when it comes to romance and this really hit home. I would recommend this to book to anyone, the author did an amazing job 😌 I would totally read it again but got to see where cole and oakley stand when she gets back to england 😉. LOVE THE BOOK READ NOW 55
As a young person who is a little bit older than the character, I felt like I could identify them. Even though this has never happened to me I felt literally everything the main character felt. When she wanted to pull out her hair so did I. When she felt like she shouldn’t be trusting, I felt the same. This author wrote a story that will pull your heart in many directions. This book is about awareness to child abuse. I love reading fiction and mysteries, even though this was fiction it didn’t feel like it after a while it felt like a real life story, so many principles and thoughts to learn from. Apart from the Bible, this book maybe my favorite book ever. 55
I loved this because it is romance and drama etc. it was just so many different thrilling things to read in just one book. I could guess the plot points but that made the book even better when I was right and they came true. 55
