Steffi doesn't talk. Rhys can't hear.They understand each other perfectly. Love isn't always a lightning strike., Sometimes it's the rumbling roll of thunder... Steffi has been a selective mute for most of her life - she's been silent for so long that she feels completely invisible. But Rhys, the new boy at school, sees her., He's deaf, and her knowledge of basic sign language means that she's assigned to look after him. To Rhys it doesn't matter that Steffi doesn't talk and, as they find ways to communicate, Steffi finds that she does have a voice, and that she's falling in love with the one person who makes her feel brave enough to use it. The stunning new novel from the bestselling author of Beautiful Broken Things is a love story about the times when a whisper is as good as a shout., Praise for Beautiful Broken Things:'Beautiful Broken Things is the book I've been waiting for. It made me want to go and rugby-tackle my best friends and give them a giant hug. It's a beautiful tale of the power and complexities of female friendship' Holly Bourne, author of Am I Normal Yet?'Beautiful Broken Things is a book that the YA world desperately needs - a book about the beauty, passion and extremities of female friendship' Alice Oseman, author of Solitaire'Starkly realistic and ultimately uplifting, Beautiful Broken Things is a compelling tale of pain and redemption, growing up and growing together, and finding empowerment and strength in friendship' Catherine Doyle, author of Vendetta'Stories about female friendships are hard to come by, especially ones with no romance, but Beautiful Broken Things fills that gap in an intensely compelling and passionate way' Lauren James, author of The Next Together

Review:

This is a delightful love story which marks all the ups and downs, misunderstandings and discoveries about another person which are part of first love and a burgeoning sexual relationship. (Carousel Magazine)

I don't know where to start. I'd give this book TEN stars if I could. I loved Beautiful Broken Things but I think I love this book even more. A brilliant depiction of social anxiety, a swoony subtle love story that creeps up on you, and meticulously researched, respectful and just beautifully written. This book is not only for the quiet ones, but by JOVE how the quiet ones will adore this book. (Holly Bourne, author of Am I Normal Yet?)

I felt like I was living this book (Zoella on Beautiful Broken Things)

Beautiful, honest and compelling. Also, one of the best depictions of anxiety I have ever read. (Catherine Doyle, author of Vendetta)

I swallowed this in one delicious sitting, and I've been thinking about Steffi and Rhys ever since. Honestly, it's been weeks and I'm not over them. They're so well drawn that they feel really real for me in a way that makes me want to check in with them for the rest of their lives. (Lauren James, author of The Next Together)

I literally cannot wait for everyone to read this and obsess over how good it is! (Maddie (Heart Full Of Books))

From the Author:

Sara lives in Brighton and does all her best writing on trains. She loves books, book people and book things. She has been writing ever since she was too small to reach the “on” switch on the family Amstrad computer. She gets her love of words from her dad, who made sure she always had books to read and introduced her to the wonders of secondhand book shops at a young age. Sara is trying to visit every country in Europe, and has managed to reach 13 with her best friend. She has also lived in Canada and worked in India. Sara is inspired by what-ifs and people. She thinks sad books are good for the soul and happy books lift the heart. She hopes to write lots of books that do both. BEAUTIFUL BROKEN THINGS is her first book and a dream come true.
