Publisher's Summary

My name is Tess Turner - at least, that's what I've always been told.

I have a voice but it isn't mine. It used to say things so I'd fit in, to please my parents, to please my teachers. It used to tell the universe I was something I wasn't. It lied.

It never occurred to me that everyone else was lying too.

Fifteen-year-old Tess doesn't mean to become mute. At first, she's just too shocked to speak. And who wouldn't be? Discovering your whole life has been a lie because your dad isn't your real father is a pretty big deal. Terrified of the truth, Tess retreats into silence.

Reeling from her family's betrayal, Tess sets out to discover the identity of her real father. He could be anyone - even the familiar-looking teacher at her school. Tess continues to investigate, uncovering a secret that could ruin multiple lives. It all may be too much for Tess to handle, but how can she ask for help when she's forgotten how to use her voice?

In a brilliant study of identity, betrayal, and complex family dynamics, award-winning author Annabel Pitcher explores the importance of communication, even when we're faced with unspeakable truths.

    Story
    "Not just another Young Adult book"
    Would you listen to Silence Is Goldfish again? Why?

    Yes I would. The story is gripping and nuanced. You really start to care about the main character as she struggles with loss of trust. The narrator really captures so many shades of emotion--it is really the dialog that makes this story, and the narrator is very deft.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dialog. The articulateness of Tess.


    Which character – as performed by Jayne Entwistle – was your favorite?

    Tess, of course, but she does really well with step-dad Jack, and makes my skin crawl with Anna, the school beauty/bully.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    When not talking says the most.


    Any additional comments?

    Marvellous, really glad to read/listen.
