Quiet

Nat has always seen her, standing at the edge of the playground, sitting at the back of the classroom, but he’s never heard her say a word. He’d like to make her smile … but what can a ten-year-old do to brighten up a little girl’s life?

Ever since the death of her father, Polly hasn’t spoken a word. She doesn’t know what to think of bright-and-cheery Nathan Under. She inclined to push him away … but as she gets to know him, she realizes he might be her best chance at a friend.

Ridiculed by neighbors and scoffed at by those close to her, Adele seeks to make something beautiful amidst chaos.
