My name is Tess Turner--at least, that's what I've always been told. I have a voice but it isn't mine. It used to say things so I'd fit in, to please my parents, to please my teachers. It used to tell the universe I was something I wasn't. It lied. It never occurred to me that everyone else was lying too. Fifteen-year-old Tess doesn't mean to become mute. At first, she's just too shocked to speak. And who wouldn't be? Discovering your whole life has been a lie because your dad isn't your real father is a pretty big deal. Terrified of the truth, Tess retreats into silence. Reeling from her family's betrayal, Tess sets out to discover the identity of her real father. He could be anyone--even the familiar-looking teacher at her school. Tess continues to investigate, uncovering a secret that could ruin multiple lives. It all may be too much for Tess to handle, but how can she ask for help when she's...

Am I the only person who hated, hated, HATED this book? I found Tess very annoying and dramatic, stubborn enough to stay with her silence instead of defending her friend, pretty much portraying that she cares more about her stupid protest than the people who accept her. Then boom, she's mad at her flashlight and throws it in the trash. Like, what??? So I'm sorry if this isn't a popular opinion, but I just did not like this book.

The ending tore me apart. But this book was one of the best I have ever read.
