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 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 ❤️

Honestly, this has got to be one of my favourite books. I never understood how people could re-read books so many times, but I finally understand. I've read this book nearly 3 times already!

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.

To be quite honest, it is unfair for her sister to make decisions without her
