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.
