Silence...

AdvantagesGreat read

Disadvantages*

"...this book in Asda in the 3 for £10 range and was initially drawn to it as the story contains a girl with selective mutism. Being a student speech therapist this particularly interested me so I decided to buy it and give it a go. Calli and Petra are best friends. They are both 7 years old, are neighbours and attend the same school. Calli hasn't spoken a single word since she was 4 years old, silenced by a tradegy at home. Petra and Calli are soul ..."

The Weight of Silence - a rare 9.5 out of 10

AdvantagesA fantastic read!!

DisadvantagesIt had to end!

"...it!) This doesn't happen very often, the only books that have remained in my head that have achieved this so far are Yann Martel's 'Life of Pi' and Chris Cleave's 'The Other Hand'. The book is very basically about 2 little girls whose families discover that they are missing. The book delves into everyones perspectives during the search for the girls. It is entertaining, intriguing, disturbing, moving and relatable to. Probably even more so if ..." Read review
