“Everything I’ve Never Said” is a book very close to my heart.
Check out the reviews, and a sample chapter in the 'Book' section of this website:
Ava wants nothing more than to tell her family she loves them, particularly her big sister, Nic. But Ava has Rett syndrome – she can’t talk, nod her head or even point at a communication card. She understands everything, but no-one understands her. When tragedy strikes her family, Ava becomes even more determined to talk. But it’s not until she meets occupational therapist Kieran and new friend Aimee that she is hopeful for change – and to be heard at last.
From bestselling author Samantha Wheeler comes a remarkable novel about finding your voice.
