The Weight of Silence (Book Summary)

Calli Clark suffers from selective mutism caused by seeing her mother fall down the stairs and lose her baby. She was four when she stopped talking and now that she’s already 7 and still mute, she suddenly went missing. Her bestfriend was missing too.

Everyone thought that the girls were together and everyone thought that it has something to do with the Jenna McIntire death. Ben, Calli’s older brother, went looking for them and after many hours, he found them. Calli was okay but Petra, her bestfriend, was badly hurt. It wasn’t the girls that Ben found because chasing Calli is their father, Griff Clark. Ben asked Calli to find help and he stayed with Petra and Griff to make sure everyone is safe. When Calli found her mother Toni, Deputy Sherrif Louis and agent Fitzgerald, the first thing she said was “Ben: and it was the first thing that she said for the years she was mute. When Petra was found, the first person that was suspected was Ben, but later on suspected Griff.


Griff died when he dragged Toni with him since he got shot by Agent Fitzgerald. Louis and Toni sort of started dating and Calli, started talking again. The first thing she talked about was who shot Petra. It was Lucky Thompson, Petra’s Father’s student who was close to them. Sadly, Petra moved away although she remained friends with Calli.

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
