For seventeen-year-old Romy Mae, selling flowers to strangers off the streets is the perfect job, or at least it is until Jack Michaels begins to work alongside her. 

He doesn't speak, instead communicating with glares and scowls instead of actual words, and with an ex-convict mother and the rest of her family sort of falling apart, the last thing Romy needs to deal with is Jack's incompetence.  

She'll forever praise the day when Jack screws up big time and finally gets himself fired, but until that day comes it's mostly just her, him, and a whole lot of flowers.

[This book is a mess and I have no intentions of editing it ever. Please check out my other much better works instead.]

This is my first time reading. I've been dying to read a book about a boy who's mute and I've finally found it. I'm really excited to read it ❤️
I've read so many articles about Selective Mutism 😂 I didn't have a note like this and  people thought the MC was ignoring other people and was snobby 🤦🏽‍♀️😂

This kinda reminds me of a person I sit next to in English, RE and Science class, he barely ever talks but he seems like a really nice guy. Love the diversity of this book! ❤️
God I know this exchange of dialogues. Were like this with my sister. Shes currently in a one of the best beaches here in our country for her branch outing. Uhgr!

I used to be mute as well, so I really love the representation here 💛

I kinda want to just stop speaking aloud but my family  would make a big deal about it and they'll think something traumatic happened.  😕 Is it also mutism if you don't talk a lot? Like, I literally only talk to my family and it's really only ever when I need something or vice versa.
