Read an Excerpt

Sam spoke no words. 

Not once. 

Not ever. 


But Sam was always watching. 

Always thinking. 

Always listening. 


At first, Sam stored her words in her lovey - 

snatching her floating thoughts before they popped like bubbles. 


Her parents thought her lovey sweet.

"She'll speak when she's ready," they said with a hug and a kiss.
