Getting drunk homecoming night your senior year is never a good idea, but Jake Hayes never expected it all to end with a car crash and a t-post embedded in his throat.
His biggest regret about it all? What he never said to Samantha Shay. He's been in love with her for years and never had the guts to tell her. Now it's too late. Because after that night, Jake will never be able to talk again.
When Jake returns to his small island home, population 5,000, he'll have to learn how to deal with being mute. He also finds that his family isn't limited to his six brothers and sisters, that sometimes an entire island is watching out for you. And when he gets the chance to spend more time with Samantha, she'll help him learn that not being able to talk isn't the worst thing that could ever happen to you. Maybe, if she'll let him, Jake will finally tell her what he didn't say before, even if he can't actually say it.

but it didn’t do much for me.
It’s about teenagers. Someone loves someone else who doesn’t know it.
There were two incidents that caused “huge” problems which were not interesting for me - but the kind of things teens get all angsty about. For example Girl A and Boy have a fight. Girl B puts her arms around Boy and plans to kiss him just as Girl A walks in the room. Boy never got kissed but feels awful and is now all angsty and needs to make a big apology to Girl A.
Aside from that, the story was pleasant and sensitive about a boy who lost his vocal cords and a girl with a terrible problem at her home. The reader hurts for her.
The narrator Matthew Dunehoo was very good.
Genre: young adult contemporary romance
"A Touching Story"
This was the first audiobook I listened to here on Audible and is still my favourite. The story is beautiful and believible.
What I Didn't Say is a YA fiction, being 15 myself, I really enjoyed it but I wouldn't say that it is purely for young adults, Anyone with an imagination could enjoy this book.
I have not listened to anything else of Matthew Dunehoo's work but i certainly would if an opertunity were to present its self. He has a, i almost want to say generic voice. I do not mean this in anegative way whatsoever. I often find that some voices overpower the role or are difficult to listen to, Matthew Dunehoo is definitely none of these. He fits the role perfectly and it very easy and pleasent to listen to.
There is very little i can criticize about the book or the narrator. The only thing i can say is the narrator pauses at strange points in a sentence. This is definitely not something i would refuse to listen for, simply an observation.
Overall a very pleasing listen, if you're stuck with what to purchase, definitely give this one a go!
