Einen Monat lang schweigen. Einfach mal nicht reagieren, nicht reden. Könntest du das? Neuigkeiten verbreiten, über andere reden - Gossip-Girl Chelsea liebt es. Als sie auf einer Party Zeugin einer intimen Situation wird, erzählt sie natürlich allen davon. Mit schrecklichen Folgen: Ihr Klassenkamerad Noah wird so zusammengeschlagen, dass er im Koma landet; die Polizei ermittelt; Chelsea wird von allen gemieden. Um ihren Fehler nicht zu wiederholen, legt sie ein Schweigegelübde ab, genau wie der buddhistische Mönch, über den sie gelesen hat. Einen Monat will sie schweigen, in der Schule und zu Hause. Manche hassen sie dafür - aber plötzlich öffnen sich in ihrer stillen Welt Türen: zu einem wunderbaren Jungen, zu Menschen, die ihr verzeihen könnten. Vorausgesetzt, sie kann sich selbst verzeihen.

A gripping, poignant novel about a Nigerian teenager and a Canadian journalist about the power of words. A’isha Nasir is a Nigerian teenager who has been charged with adultery. She is sentenced to death by stoning—a sentence to be carried out after her daughter is weaned. Sophie MacNeil is an ambitious, though inexperienced, Canadian journalist living in Nigeria. Speechless is the story of how their lives become intertwined in a fast-paced tale of justice, witness, and courage. Sophie MacNeil is working in Lagos as a contract reporter for the Daily Leader. Desperate to do serious work, she convinces the editor of the newspaper to let her cover A’isha’s story. After meeting with A’isha, she writes an impassioned article about the way women suffer under shariah law. Her story is regarded as inflammatory, written by an outsider. The Kaduna office of the Daily Leader is firebombed and rioting quickly slips into sectarian violence. Turned back at the border as she tries to flee, Sophie comes to terms with the naiveté with which she approached the story. Still, A’isha had spoken to her. And she had a duty to listen. Speechless offers a thoughtful and complex view of how stories are told. Who should tell a story? What happens when one speaks on behalf of another? At once compelling and lyrical, this novel presents a nuanced cast of characters trying to navigate the power of their words, their responsibility for them, and how they affect others in matters of life and death.

Jelly is as surprised as anyone when he decides that he's going to win the annual sixth grade speech contest. Just like that, Joe Alton Miles, better known as Jelly (because his initials are J.A.M. and his best friend's are P.B.), is faced with overcoming not only his terror of being in the spotlight, but also the wrath of smart, popular Victoria, who believes that the prize (like all prizes) is rightfully hers. At first, Jelly only cares about winning the awesome prize (a new tablet), but as Victoria escalates her campaign against him, Jelly begins to realize that it's not only the prize that's at stake, but also his reputation, his self-respect and the friendship he values most. Jelly must dig deep inside himself to find out if he's strong enough to stand up to Victoria and show everyone what he's really capable of. Hilariously funny and just as poignant, Speechless is about finding out who your friends are, giving back, standing up to bullying and finding your own unique voice.

How do you give a eulogy when you can’t think of one good thing to say? A poignant, funny, and candid look at grief, family secrets, difficult people, and learning to look behind the facade. As if being stuffed into last year’s dress pants at his cousin’s wake weren’t uncomfortable enough, thirteen-year-old Jimmy has just learned from his mother that he has to say a few words at the funeral the next day. Why him? What could he possibly say about his cousin, who ruined everything they did? He can’t recall one birthday party, family gathering, or school event with Patrick that didn’t result in injury or destruction. As Jimmy attempts to navigate the odd social norms of the wake, he draws on humor, heartfelt concern, and a good deal of angst while racking his brain and his memory for a decent and meaningful memory to share. But it’s not until faced with a microphone that the realization finally hits him: it’s not the words that are spoken that matter the most, but those that are truly heard.
