The Silent History
A NovelBook - 2014
It begins as a statistical oddity: a spike in children born with acute speech delays. Physically normal in every way, these children never speak and do not respond to speech; they don't learn to read, don't learn to write. The number of cases grows to an epidemic level, and the so-called silent community is growing into an elusive, enigmatic force in itself. What will be the result of a generation of children forced to live without words?
