For older readers. Connor’s best friend Branwell suddenly can’t speak, and the au pair says he dropped the baby, who is now in a coma. Connor has to find a way to communicate with Branwell, and slowly piece together what happened. The boys are 13, and dealing with the strange feelings that come with puberty, and the au pair uses this to manipulate them. It’s about coming of age, friendship, and the ways families can hurt each other unthinkingly. Very good.
