About this book

Book Summary

Four years ago, Judith and her best friend disappeared from their small town of Roswell Station. Two years ago, only Judith returned, permanently mutilated, reviled and ignored by those who were once her friends and family.

Unable to speak, Judith lives like a ghost in her own home, silently pouring out her thoughts to the boy who's owned her heart as long as she can remember - even if he doesn't know it - her childhood friend, Lucas.

But when Roswell Station is attacked, long-buried secrets come to light, and Judith is forced to choose: continue to live in silence, or recover her voice, even if it means changing her world, and the lives around her, forever.

This startlingly original novel will shock and disturb you; it will fill you with Judith's passion and longing; and its mysteries will keep you feverishly turning the pages until the very last.

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. ...suspenseful and haunting. [Julie's] poetic narrative will draw readers in, and the gradual unveiling of secrets will keep them absorbed." - Publishers Weekly

"Starred Review. Lyrical language, a good mystery, and a compelling heroine – this is a page-turner with substance." - School Library Journal

"Starred Review. Every now and then, a novel comes along with such an original voice that readers slow down to savor the poetic prose. This is such a story." - Kirkus

"A strange but satisfying - and relatively singular - mix. Grade 8 & up." - Booklist

"Twines lyrical writing with the sharp pull of suspense to tell a riveting tale of a young girl's struggle to reclaim her life." - Judy Blundell, author of What I Saw and How I Lied

"Powerful." - Rita Williams-Garcia, author of One Crazy Summer

"While it is deeply poetic, the story reads like a thriller." - Tim Wynne-Jones, author of Blink & Caution
