Getting drunk homecoming night your senior year is never a good idea, but Jake Hayes never expected it all to end with a car crash and a t-post embedded in his throat. His biggest regret about it all? What he never said to Samantha Shay. He's been in love with her for years and never had the guts to tell her. Now it's too late. Because after that night, Jake will never be able to talk again. When Jake returns to his small island home, population 5,000, he'll have to learn how to deal with being mute. He also finds that his family isn't limited to his six brothers and sisters, that sometimes an entire island is watching out for you. And when he gets the chance to spend more time with Samantha, she'll help him learn that not being able to talk isn’t the worst thing that could ever happen to you. Maybe, if she'll let him, Jake will finally tell her what he didn't say before, even if he can't actually say it.

But this didn't have the depth I would have liked to see, the focus switched from Jake pretty early on and the writing was really only so-so. So eighteen year old Jake, one of seve...
I gave this one a solid two stars because while it wasn’t a terrible read, I didn’t like it. Based on other reviews I’m seeing on Good Reads I know this puts me in the minority but I firmly stand by my opinion. The first reason I I did not care for this novel was because it was cliched. Of course th...
