        This book is about a boy named Dave who didn't want to talk for a whole day because of Gandhi. But soon he makes a contest with the girls. Whichever side talked the most will lose. The principal doesn't like the contest and forces Dave to talk. Dave says that you have the right to remain silent. He got sent to the principal's office but the principal wasn't mad. She apologized to Dave and joined no talking.

                How can you use three words in one sentence to express your idea? A no talking competition between fifth grade boys and girls in Laketon Elementary School will last two days. The captains of the teams are Lynsey and Dave. Some of the teachers support the competition, but others don't. The principle decided to stop this competition, ....... How will the students stop the grown ups? Which group is gonna to win this competition? The interesting part of the story is how the students try to use less words to communicate with others. They get the inspiration from Gandhi, who used no weapons or violence to push the whole British army out of India. He was the one thought no talk could bring orders to one's mind. Maybe I should try to speak less and listen more.
