Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Blurb via Goodreads-

"Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can't keep a secret

Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.

Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she's ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.

But there's strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she's done. If only she can forgive herself."

I really enjoyed Speechless. This was an interesting take an a controversial subject and how it affects the lives involved. The characters were extremely (and in some cases unfortunately) realistic. Although Speechless did have serious issues it also had the perfect mix of humor and romance. This was a fantastic coming of age book and Hannah Harrington has made a new fan.

5 out of 5 stars, highly recommend!
