"Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can't keep a secret
Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.
Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she's ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.
But there's strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she's done. If only she can forgive herself." -Information from Goodreads.com

I feel Speechless has taught me the power of our words. Its what we say or don’t say that affects everything and everyone around us.
I really loved this story and the characters!!! I will be reading of Hannah’s work in the future.
I just wish to know what becomes of everyone.
5/5 stars. Happy Reading, Ashley
