Nastya moves in with her aunt and starts high school in a new town. But there's something off about Nastya. She hasn't talked to anybody in a year. At school, she meets Josh who has suffered the loss of all of his close family members. Kids stay away from him. Can their friendship provide any healing for them?
Why doesn't Nastya talk? What happened to her? These are questions that are answered along the way. Gripping, intense, beautifully written, and one of my favorites of 2015 so far.
A caution to my younger readers: contains Mature Content.
