'At first I thought there were technical problems - something wrong with the sound system - because when I opened my mouth I couldn't hear a thing. But it was more serious than that...I was completely dumb.

Chris loses the power of speech completely when his best friend dies in a car crash. Why? What terrible secret is he hiding? And can he find his voice before it's too late?

Very intelligent and moving. (Sue Elkin of The Independent)

This book is brilliant. It's gripping, thrilling and moving, and at the same times it's fantastically well observed, true to life and really, really funny. I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it to young teen readers everywhere. (Chicklish)
