Synopsis"I have this strange sense that my silence is preparing me for something I can't name . .."
Elizah Rayne is nothing like other fourteen-year-old girls. More interested in bird bones than people, she wraps herself in silence. Trying to escape the shadow of her gambler father, Elizah and her mother move into an old house that borders a cemetery. All her mother wants is for them to have "normal" lives. But that becomes impossible for Elizah when she finds a human jawbone by the river and meets Nathaniel, a strangely hypnotic boy who draws Elizah into his dreamlike and mysterious world.
Only by forgetting everything she knows can Elizah understand the truth about Nathaniel—and discover an unimaginable secret
Elizah has family issues as everyone does growing up. However Elizah turned a crazy life into a negative personality. I personally understood her and why she seemed bitter in life. Alot of people don't know how to deal with their emotions so they turn to sarcasm and snardy comments. Elizah was creepy and wonderously strange. I loved how the book started No expectations. The book is what it is. No more no less. So many people read so much into why this happened or why this didn't happen. They forget to just enjoy what the author wrote. This is definitely a great summer read. Quick and easy. I think I read it under 4 hours.
