From the book jacket: "When you don't
talk, theres a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said."
Harsh words indeed, from Brian Nelson of all people. But, D. J.
can't help admitting, maybe hes right. Stuff like why her best
friend, Amber, isnt so friendly anymore. Or why her little
brother, Curtis, never opens his mouth. Why her mom has two jobs
and a big secret. Why her college-football-star brothers won't

fifteen-year-old D. J. Schwenk of Red Bend, Wisconsin, learns to
