Summary
Winner of multiple awards, praised by librarians and teachers as one of the best books ever written for teens-NOW BACK IN PRINT! New town, new school, new friends. It was difficult for Ginny at first, but her senior year is finally starting to feel kind of normal. That is, until she sees him-the beautiful mystery in her English class. He has never spoken a word to anyone. He moves through each day at school without making eye contact. His name is Smitty Tibbs, but everyone calls him the Alien. Ginny is convinced there's more to the Alien than his muted exterior. But as she attempts to break into his safe and emotionless world, she realizes her efforts might be causing more harm than good. Has she gone too far, or not far enough?
Summary
After moving to the East Coast, Ginny enters her senior year of high school and uncovers the secret behind a new friend's refusal to speak
