Product Description
 
Ava would like nothing more than to tell her family she loves them, particularly her big sister, Nic. But Ava has Rett syndrome - she can't talk, can't nod her head, can't even point at a communication card. She understands everything, but no one understands her.

When tragedy strikes her family, Ava becomes even more determined to talk. But it's not until she meets occupational therapist Kieran and new friend Aimee that she is hopeful for change - and to find her voice at last.

A powerful novel about a subject rarely tackled - young people with disabilities and the families who love and support them.Ava would like nothing more than to tell her family she loves them, particularly her big sister, Nic.

Samantha Wheeler studied agriculture, worked with dairy farmers, and taught science before writing her first children's book in 2011. Five books later, her stories have been shortlisted for the Queensland Literary Awards, the Readings Book Prize, The Wilderness Society Environmental Award and the Royal Zoological Society of NSW, Whitley Commendation. When not writing, Samantha spends time with her husband, pets and two beautiful daughters, the youngest of whom was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Although never able to speak, and trapped in a body that doesn't work, this brave young lady's remarkable spirit touches everyone who meets her.
