Overview

Where do you turn when the watching eyes are everywhere? Where do you go when no place is safe? Who do you turn to when saying anything could get someone killed? Who can you trust when "they" could be anyone?

Robyn Lockhart liked her simple but predictable life in the small Iowa town she grew up in. But when her mother moves them to the big city, Robyn has no choice but to brave the tumultuous high school she's thrust into. Then, with barely a blink and as an outsider looking in, Robyn begins asking questions that no one seems willing to face. Is it possible to stay silent while simultaneously shouting from the rooftops that something is deadly wrong? And if you shout, beyond those watching every move you make, who will even hear?

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer - Kevin Apgar
"Stallings takes a much darker turn with this novel than in her previous three outings and she does so very well. The sense of desperation and anguish on the part of Robyn is palpable and you definitely find yourself sympathizing with her. Stallings has created a very memorable character here... an Atticus Finch styled hero who refuses to let threats stop her from seeking the truth and justice. It would be interesting to see the author continue using Robyn Lockhart in future novels."
Reviewer - Cindy Penn
A realistic examination of some of the hardest hitting issues teenagers confront. Written her characteristically scintillating style, Stallings addresses the dangers gangs present and the cost of keeping quiet about their threats. Robyn becomes a powerful example of how easy it is to be oblivious of another person's life. Moreover, Stallings pens an engrossing tale that should be required reading for all middle and high school students and parents. A powerful, thoughtful approach to teen's needs

    Stupendous read! Absolutely fabulous! Will leave you wanting to read more by this amazing author!

    Staci Stallings is an amazingly gifted writer. Her characters are fabulous and her writing is so poetic. I love all of her stories! I've read, The Price of Silence, three times now. It's that good. Wait, did I say good? Make that great! There are places in this story that keep you on the edge of your seat, holding your breath, wondering what's going to happen next, and places that have you crying--so get the Kleenex--and other places that have you saying, "Ah-h-h." Because of the strong message in, The Price of Silence, I think it should be mandatory reading in every middle school and high school. Sometimes doing the right thing isn't easy. And sometimes we stand alone when we do choose to do what's right. Find out if protagonist Robyn Lockhart does what's right in the face of danger, and if she stands alone. The Price of Silence, is an excellent read for all ages. I highly recommend it, and all of Staci's books.
