Speechless

Connor is sure his best friend, Branwell, couldn't have hurt Branwell's baby half 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?

Synopsis:

When he is wrongly accused of gravely injuring his baby half-sister, 13-year-old Branwell loses his power of speech. Only his friend Connor is able to reach him and uncover the truth about what really happened.
