Connor is sure his best friend, Branwell, couldn't have hurt Branwell's baby sister, Nikki. But Nikki lies in a coma, and Branwell is in a juvenile behavioral center, suspected of a horrible crime and unable to utter the words to tell what really happened.

Connor is the only one who might be able to break through Branwell's wall of silence. But how can he prove Branwell didn't commit the unspeakable act of which he's accused -- when Branwell can't speak for himself?

    This was a great book that I couldn't stop reading.Some parts I didn't think were appropriate for the age they put on the back.Overall though, its a Great book for older readers.

      I read part of the book in class and it seemed like a good book. I think the book is a mystery about why the boy just all of a sudden stopped talking.
