Adelaide Te Ngawai was thirteen when Maunga Richards stole her voice.
Addy is plunged into silence when a high school bully inflicts her with an incurable disease that leaves her unable to speak, write, or create. Vox Pox—a man-made malady that’s been terrorizing the city for months. Resilient, Addy fights to survive. To not be silenced. But then her brother, Theo, is infected as well.
Desperate for any information that might help cure Theo, Addy follows Maunga into a newly developed virtual psychoreality simulator and discovers a conspiracy deeper than she’d ever imagined. How far will she go to save her brother?
“A stunning debut from a fresh force in young adult fiction. With swift, deft prose set in a fantastic future, Wilson finds her voice in Voiceless.”—Tosca Lee, New York Times bestselling author
I have to thank my friend for introducing me to the word “onomatopoeia” as it is a word I was previously not familiar with. I suppose after my continued ranting, she felt the need to educate me. There’s no need for it in a YA book. Young Adults are not in preschool and should not need to be told the sound that a door makes upon closing.
Boom! Bang! Crash! When a word is formed from the sound that an associated thing makes, call it an example of onomatopoeia.
