A traumatic event near the end of the summer has a devastating effect on Melinda's freshman year in high school
From the beginning of Melinda's freshman year of high school, she's labeled a snitch and a loser--she called the cops at an end-of-summer party, and a lot of kids got in trouble. But Melinda's holding a powerful, horrible secret, and it's eating away at her, taking away her voice along with everything else. Though she has no one to turn to, she soon discovers what she must do to help stop her suffering--and she refuses to remain silent anymore. A 2000 Michael L. Printz Honor Book.
