Talk to Me by Sonia Ellis
This is an intriguing mystery story for elementary and middle grade children. Fourteen year old Sadina's seven year old sister Maddie, has selective mutism and won't speak to anyone other than her immediate family and Bella, her electronic cat. When Maddie witnesses an intruder in her home, she is unable to speak to even her own family, and without her explanation of what she saw, her mother could go to jail. The story has some interesting issues and I think that young readers will enjoy it. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
