about this item

Returning to her family in what appears to be a Puritan colonial town, 18-year-old Judith is met with cold eyes and disgust. Kidnapped with her best friend, now dead, Judith had her tongue cut and now she is shunned as a result. Living in resignation to her fate, she turns her thoughts to Lucas, her childhood friend and crush. The grim story of what happened to Judith unwinds as an attack upon the town forces her to find her voice, face her captor, and help the very people who turned their backs on her.
Speak meets The Scarlet Letter in this literary masterpiece, the recipient of five starred reviews and nominated for the 2014 Edgar Award

"?All the Truth That?s In Me is that rare magical thing?a beautiful love story told in spare, riveting prose.??The New York Journal of Books

?The love story and the mystery . . . are mesmerizing. Berry?s language undulates and flows. . . . Worthy of multiple reads.??The Boston Globe



Four years ago, Judith and her best friend disappeared from their small town of Roswell Station. Two years ago, only Judith returned, permanently mutilated, reviled and ignored by those who were once her friends and family.
Unable to speak, Judith lives like a ghost in her own home, silently pouring out her thoughts to the boy who's owned her heart as long as she can remember--even if he doesn't know it--her childhood friend, Lucas.
But when Roswell Station is attacked, long-buried secrets come to light, and Judith is forced to choose: continue to live in silence, or recover her voice, even if it means changing her world, and the lives around her, forever.
