This story takes place in modern day England .
The irony in this story in when Oakley and Cole get together and they are going to tell jer parents on her 16th birthday and they thought when told them that they would be mad but they werent they were actually happy.
''I swallowed hard , my heart beating so loud i was sure the whole neighborhood would hear it .
''Oakley?'' I mumbled in disbelief .She said my name . I definitely didn't dream that''. pg 155
''Cole?'' she repeated . Her voice so quiet and broken. I had always wondered what her voice would sound like now . pg 155
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars (: i would give it 5 out of 5 stars because i really enjoyed this book and i cant wait to read the second one in the Silence series.
I like that quote because it is the very first time that Oakley has spoken in like 10 years of her life. I also like this quote because it is also the first time that Cole remembers what her voice sounds like .
