"Because he spoke too much, And she didn't speak at all." Piper is mute. After a tragic accident that occurred years ago, she simply stopped using words and stayed silent instead. Alex is loud. Being diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, only to be passed around from family to family, he feels like talking is the only thing he can do. But when an emergency foster placement lands Alex with Piper and her mother, the two troubled teens discover that silence and sound do not mix well. The two make impressions on one another, for better or for worse. They find that, as different as they are, they might just make sense. Can Piper speak the truth and get justice for what happened to her? And will Alex relax and allow himself to find the beauty in quiet?
