'"I don't know what I'm doing here. Well, I do really. It's because I was getting nowhere at the Hospital. I have been sent here to learn to talk again. Sent here because my mother can't stand my silent presence at home. Sent here because of my face, I suppose. I don't know."
So begins the absorbing diary of a 14 year old girl who shares with us her thoughts about the school and people around her; she reveals, bit by bit, the events of her past which have caused her to withdraw into herself.
At times poignant, at other times wryly amusing, this remarkable first novel, based on a true story, is written with unusual insight into the teenage mind.'
