so much has happened to Kate that she just shut down. she would talk to anyone, not her brother, friends, teacher, no one. till Derick shows up and she slowly lets him in. but can he get her to talk or will her vooice be lost forever?
While it's not at all my kind of reading I say go for it! What you have here is a little gut-wrenching as far as situation but doesn't really give us anything about the characters. It's all tertiary stuff, no meat. As such it's hard to say much more than that.
