Publisher Description

When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.
Harsh words indeed, from Brian Nelson of all people. But, D. J. can’t help admitting, maybe he’s right.

When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.
Stuff like why her best friend, Amber, isn’t so friendly anymore. Or why her little brother, Curtis, never opens his mouth. Why her mom has two jobs and a big secret. Why her college-football-star brothers won’t even call home. Why her dad would go ballistic if she tried out for the high school football team herself. And why Brian is so, so out of her league.

When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.
Welcome to the summer that fifteen-year-old D. J. Schwenk of Red Bend, Wisconsin, learns to talk, and ends up having an awful lot of stuff to say.

Pretty Good

I like how this book effortlessly morphed several different topics into one well writen novel. I like the way it was writen, kind of like a fifteen-year-old, like in the book. I also liked the very last paragraph where the reader lrarned that this book was actually her Enghish assignment. I've thought about this concept brought up in the book, about being a cow. We really all are just cows, doing what we are told, giving up our freedom and happiness for the natural obidience of human nature. The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 was that it wasn't very deep. All of D.J.'s feelings were clearly writen, not giving much for the reader to speculate.
