Say It | OBJ
Nyla has struggled her entire life with having a voice. The only person she ever felt comfortable with speaking to was her father. It was as though he was the only one who understood her. He would never grow frustrated with how long it took her to get her words out, no matter how jumbled they came out.
After losing her father at the age of ten she stopped speaking completely, only finding how to express herself through music. Following her passion of dance Nyla made it through school and college. Now Nyla is branching out into the powerful dance teams of the NFL.
Nyla's anxiety is now tested as she enters into a world bigger than her. The struggle of being around people who don't get her almost makes her want to give up, that is until one of the teams star players takes interest in her. Will he be able to help her find her voice, or will it push her further to the end?
This story is inspired by one of my all time favorite novels: Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. If you haven't read it I suggest you go do so when you have the time.
