From the author of Sunday Times bestsellers One Child and Ghost Girl comes a heartbreaking story of a boy trapped in silence and the teacher who rescued him.When special education teacher Torey Hayden first met fifteen-year-old Kevin, he was barricaded under a table.

Desperately afraid of the world around him, he hadn't spoken a word in eight years.

He was considered hopeless, incurable.But Hayden refused to believe it, though she realised it might well take a miracle to break through the walls he had built around himself.

With unwavering devotion and gentle, patient love, she set out to free him - and slowly uncovered a shocking violent history and a terrible secret that an unfeeling bureaucracy had simply filed away and forgotten.Torey refused to give up on this tragic "lost case." For a trapped and frightened boy desperately needed her help - and she knew in her heart she could not rest easy until she had rescued him from the darkness.

Silent Boy is about Torey's difficult relationship with a young teen boy told through her eyes. I thought the ending was brilliant, which you can't say about alot of books.A great read overall and one of my favourite books by Torey Hayden.
