The Girl Without a Voice is the shocking story from bestselling author and foster carer Casey Watson. Thirteen-year-old Imogen joins Casey’s class and suffers from selective mutism — although her grandparents insist they have no idea why. Not content with the explanation that Imogen is just playing up, Casey starts digging and it’s not long before she starts to discover a very different side to Imogen’s character. After months of silence, Imogen utters her first, terrified, words to Casey: ‘I thought she was going to burn me.’

Howling almost non-stop she was displaying the worst symptoms that Mary had ever seen. How could Mary help a child who had been shut up in closets and treated like an animal? How could she reach this lost girl?
