Ethan's Voice by Rachel Carter
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Perfect for fans of Mark Haddon, David Almond and Jacqueline Wilson Ethan's Voice is an uplifting, tenderly written story that marks the arrival of a remarkable new talent in children's fiction.

A message from Zoe Duncan, Senior Editor at Scholastic:

"A tender, uplifting story about a mute boy's journey to rediscover his ability to speak. It is a book that is full of friendship, with a story that is told with the lightest touch."

Synopsis

Ethan's Voice by Rachel Carter

How do you begin to tell your story when you can't speak? Ethan lives on the canal. He likes it there. He can go to the pond and catch newts and minnows. He can learn everything he needs to know from books and from his mum. No one there laughs at him because he doesn't talk. Ethan can't remember exactly when he stopped talking or why. It is only when he meets Polly, a girl who has recently moved to the canal, that he begins to wish things were different.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
