My name is Tess Turner—at least, that’s what I’ve always been told.
I have a voice but it isn’t mine. It used to say things so I’d fit in, to please my parents, to please my teachers. It used to tell the universe I was something I wasn’t. It lied.
It never occurred to me that everyone else was lying too.

Fifteen-year-old Tess doesn’t mean to become mute. When she discovers that her dad isn’t her biological father, at first she’s just too shocked to speak. But quickly she begins to see the benefit of silence. She can protect herself from the questions she’s too afraid to ask. It frustrates the heck out of her parents. And it also gets the attention of her handsome Math teacher, Mr Holdsworth …

Tess sets out to discover the identity of her real father. But when trouble strikes and everything spirals out of control, how can she ask for help when she’s forgotten how to use her voice?

Quotes & Awards

  • “A memorably offbeat novel narrated by fifteen-year-old Tess, who decides to stop speaking…It’s a painful but rewarding story of an insecure teen finding her voice.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Pitcher delivers a story of betrayal and miscues among family and friends with a realistic blend of humor and gravity as Tess slides toward mental instability. An unflinchingly honest portrayal of anguish.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “In Tess, Pitcher crafts an engaging and honest narrator…this refreshing story is firmly focused at home on questions of identity and family. Readers will…enjoy the journey.”
