Author(s): 

Berry’s YA debut sets itself apart from other historical mysteries in its elaborate second-person prose, even though some passages are a bit awkward. Judith’s thought-provoking journey as she searches for her voice, written as a second-person narrative to her childhood love, will inspire readers.

Judith emerges after two years of captivity with a mutilated tongue and without a best friend, who was found dead soon after they disappeared. When rumors and lies surface, Judith must find her voice in a society where she has no way to reveal the truth of what really happened.
