Summary: Sold into slavery to pirates at the young age of four, Summer learns to survive the rough seas of subterfuge and thieves through silence. When the boat she’s lived on most of her life is destroyed, Summer finds herself washed up on the shore of a new world, a phantom universe full of the bizarre and extraordinary. She meets Gage, the one boy who understands the girl with no speech. But when their lives are put on the line, will Summer finally call out? Or will all be lost in the fathomless depth of silence?
Got your attention?...I know right.
I've sat here trying to think what to write about this book that wouldn't give away all the great parts of this book....I've used the delete key so much my poor computer is thinking "What the heck?"
Throughout the book I've enjoyed the fact that the chapters flow nicely, they either flash back or progress further into the story. It made it so wonderful to read, giving you an in depth bearing into the life of Summer and the people around her. I loved the fact the Gage would do anything in the world for her even after finding out the truth of her. What a guy! She's definitely made some wonderful friends during this whole ordeal, ones she will need if Dr. Zhar has anything to say about it.
