A Quiet Kind of Thunder

By: Sara Barnard
30197201Location: FIC BAR
Genre: Romance, mental health and being a team!

From the bestselling author of Beautiful Broken Things comes a love story about the times when a whisper is as good as a shout.

Steffi doesn't talk, but she has so much to say.
Rhys can't hear, but he can listen.
Their love isn't a lightning strike, it's the rumbling roll of thunder.


Steffi has been a selective mute for most of her life - she's been silent for so long that she feels completely invisible. But Rhys, the new boy at school, sees her. He's deaf, and her knowledge of basic sign language means that she's assigned to look after him. To Rhys, it doesn't matter that Steffi doesn't talk, and as they find ways to communicate, Steffi finds that she does have a voice, and that she's falling in love with the one person who makes her feel brave enough to use it. 


  A brilliant depiction of social anxiety, a swoony subtle love story that creeps up on you, and meticulously researched, respectful and just beautifully written.

This book is not only for the quiet ones, but by JOVE how the quiet ones will adore this book.-Holl
