9780061766695: Don't Breathe a Word

Joy delamere is suffocating.

From asthma, from her parents, and from her boyfriend, Asher, who is smothering her from the inside out. She can take his cruel words, his tender words . . . until the night they go too far.

To escape, Joy sacrifices her suburban life to find the one who offered his help, a homeless boy called Creed. He introduces her to a world of fierce loyalty, to its rules of survival, and to love—a world she won’t easily let go.

Set against the backdrop of the streets of Seattle, Holly Cupala’s power­ful new novel explores the subtleties of abuse, the secrets we keep, and the ways to redemption. But above all, it is an unflinching story about the extraordinary lengths one girl will go to discover her own strength.

About the Author:

Holly Cupala is the author of Tell Me a Secret. When she isn’t writing or making art, she explores Seattle with her husband and daughter. A portion of her proceeds goes toward helping sexually exploited girls around the world.

From Booklist:

You have got to be desperate to stage your own kidnapping, but that is just what 16-year-old Joy does. To make matters even more precarious, she suffers from life-threatening asthma, which Cupala uses as a powerful metaphor for Joy’s figurative suffocation in the inescapable trap into which she has been drawn. The first-person narrative shuttles back and forth in time between Joy’s abuse at the hands of her boyfriend (the reader has to add up clues that Joy herself has trouble facing) and her life on the Seattle streets after she has fled from her abuser. Cupala’s depiction of what it takes to survive on the streets and the various perils that can ensnare runaways is vivid and fascinating. This novel recalls Laurie Halse Anderson’s Speak (1999) in its psychological astuteness about the many terrifying tendrils connected to teen sexual abuse, and it works just as well on a suspense level, too. Grades 10-12. --Connie Fletcher
