Perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson as this is a emotional story. How do you begin to tell your story when you can't speak but knew that you once did? Ethan lives on the canal. He likes it there. He can go to the pond and catch newts and minnows. He can learn everything he needs to know from books and from his mum & dad. No one there laughs at him because he doesn't talk. Ethan can't remember exactly when he stopped talking or why. It is only when he meets Polly, a girl who has recently moved to the canal, that he begins to wish things were different. He begins to communicate with her through a notebook.Polly has her own issues to face as she misses her father and the home life that they had. Her mother recently parted from her husband and has taken Polly to live on the canal. Polly befriends Ethan and together they discover why and when than lost his voice. I liked this story as it was a short story that had a happy ever after ending.
