Dave Strider. With a name like that you'd expect him to be cool and all. However, that is not always the case. At age ten Dave suffered from trauma, causing him to go mute. For four years he has never uttered a word. Is it permanent? Or is he simply too scared? When a horrible strife battle goes wrong, Dave is forced to leave good old Texas behind and head to Washington, to live with a new family, the Egberts. Consisting of only Mr. Egbert and John Egbert, Dave figures his life has gone farther down the hole. Yet again, though, that is not always the case. Could it be that Dave's life could actually turn out for the better? Maybe he's been silent for too long. Could he actually gain the courage to speak? Or is being mute forever his road?
