I saw this book while I browsing on Oyster and the summary caught my attention :
For eleven years, Oakley Farrell has been silent. At the age of five, she topped talking, and no one seems to know why. Refusing to communicate beyond a few physical actions, Oakley remains in her own little world... (Taken from Oyster)
Perhaps its from having a speech disorder myself, but the idea of being mute (or any other speech impediment) instantly sparks my interest; but, while I knew that this book wasn't exactly my norm when it comes to books (drama/romance), I thought I would give it try as I could I was falling into a reading slump and thought that something new would keep me out of one.
And, it did.
