After what happened to her face, Marina stopped talking. Completely. Even the people at the hospital couldn’t help her find her voice again. In an almost hopeless, last-ditch effort, Marina is shuffled to a boarding school–where she’s required to keep a journal. Ugh! Slowly, though, the secrets begin to pour from her spirit onto the paper. The more shape she can give to the nightmare, the more she is released from it. This is one of the most intelligent, realistic novels about post-traumatic stress ever written for young people. Marina’s transformation will inspire any teen who has ever struggled to find his or her voice.
