One warm, West Texas November night, a shy boy named Oliver Loving joins his classmates at Bliss County Day School's annual dance. But as the music plays, a troubled young man sneaks in through the school's back door, and chaos erupts. Nearly ten years later, Oliver still lies wordless and paralyzed in an assisted care facility. When a new medical test promises a key to unlock Oliver's trapped mind, Oliver's family fights for a way for Oliver to finally communicate--and also tell the truth of what really happened that fateful night. A dazzling and moving novel from Block (The Storm at the Door, 2011).
