The Silent Summer of Kyle McGinley
After being shuttled from foster home to foster home, Kyle McGinley knows no one cares about him or pays attention to him. So he decides to stop talking. When he ends up with the Wardmans, things just might turn around. Unless his dad shows up — then everything will just get a whole lot worse.
The Silent Summer of Kyle McGinley is for readers ages 14 and up.
From the book
Just stop hearing it. Have it go away and not come back. Hell, what if not talking means I've made more room for dear old Daddy? Too bad. I've got to try it. I don't want to talk. I just don't want to. Especially to people who don't listen. Especially when I can't say what I think. It's like I'm lying. Lying, lying, lying. Lying all my life.
