Silence by Deborah Lytton


 Love Is Not Blind, It is Deaf.
Stella was born to sing. Someday Broadway. Even though she is only a sophomore at a new high school, her voice has given her the status as a cool kid. But then a tragic accident renders her deaf. She cannot hear herself sing not to mention speak. She cannot hear anything. Silence. What happens when everything you have dreamed of and hoped for is shattered in a single moment?
Enter Hayden, the boy with blonde curls who stutters. He is treated like an outcast because he is not normal. And, yet, Stella feels an attraction to him that she cannot explain. As Hayden reaches out to help Stella discover a world without sound his own tragic past warns him to keep a distance. But their connection is undeniable. Can the boy who stutters and the girl whose deaf find a happily-ever-after?
SILENCE is a story of friendship and hope with a lesson that sometimes it takes a tragedy to help us find beauty and love in unexpected places.

Stella is a sophomore, but she already knows what she wants to do with her life. Broadway is her dream and she has a beautiful voice, so she has a great future ahead of her. Because she can sing so well, she's been given the lead in the school musical, which is something exceptional for someone her age. This means she's instantly popular. Her best friend loves the attention more than she does and when she drags Stella to a party a horrible accident happens.

Stella has lost much more than only her hearing, she's lost her entire future. Hayden, who's a social outcast at school wants to show her that life isn't over yet. He stutters and has a troubled past, he knows what it's like to lose something. Hayden and Stella have a connection that doesn't need words and when she's hurting he's there. Will something positive happen for Stella after the horrible things she's been through? And will Hayden find some happiness after all?

Silence is a beautiful story about two teenagers who instantly connect. When something happens to Stella Hayden is the one who knows how to make her feel better again. He's always there and he's such an amazing guy. Stella has lost the one thing she loved the most, but because of Hayden she can see a future again with more possibilities and love. The question is if they will get a chance together. I couldn't wait to read what would happen to them. I loved the idea of finding someone so special at a young age. Silence is such a beautiful love story. It isn't a regular high school romance, it's something much, much more.
