A beautiful and heart-warming coming of age story.
Skylar, despite being mute (or perhaps because of it) was a fantastic narrator. He was adept at reading others and wore his heart and feelings on his sleeve, making him very easy to fall in love with.
The unlikely friendship which develops between Skylar and Rafael was perfect. Not rushed or cheesy, but equally innocent and sweet. It struck me as kind of crazy, kind of amazing, that one person could make me feel so serene just by being.
I was very pleased to discover that this is the first part of a series which follows Skylar and Rafael's story.
