The Things I Didn't Say by Kylie Fornasier
Publisher: Penguin Teen Australia
Publication Date: 27 April 2016
Pre-Order: The Book Depository | Dymocks Australia
I hate the label
Selective Mutism - as if I choose not to speak, like a child who refuses
to eat broccoli. I've used up every dandelion wish since I was ten
wishing for the power to speak whenever I want to. I'm starting to
wonder if there are enough dandelions.
After losing her best
friend that night, Piper Rhodes changes schools, determined that her
final year will be different. She will be different. Then she meets
West: school captain, star soccer player, the boy everyone talks about.
Despite her fear of losing everything all over again, Piper falls in
love - and West with her - without Piper ever speaking one word to him.
But will it last? (summary from Goodreads)
This definitely sounds like my kind of read. I'll be meeting Kylie Fornasier, along with a few other Aussie YA authors, this week and I'm hoping to get my hands on an early copy of this one. We've had some great YA contemporary coming out of Australia recently and I'm sure I'll be loving this one too.
