The Things I Didn’t Say by Kylie Fornasier

This was a touching book about a girl named Piper who suffers from an anxiety disorder called Selective Mutism. It felt honest, heart breaking, and it was one of those rare teen books where getting the guy didn’t automatically ‘fix her’ or solve everything. Piper's illness also didn’t happen because of some big dark secret or tragic past. It was just a horrible thing that she had to live with, for no reason other than her brain chemistry.

The Things I Didn't Say is a beautiful contemporary story about the power that our words can have on people, and the importance of patience when connecting with someone. It has also been quite popular since we got it, so if it sounds appealing you may want to put it on hold.
