Price: $4.99
Thrust into the country environs of the Pacific Northwest, Klein, a precocious, yet introverted fourteen-year-old, is confronted with her abusive past for the first time when a repressed memory emerges. Shaken, she realizes she can no longer hide from her secret. Klein becomes perversely drawn to a classmate and neighbor, Ed Boons, after discovering they have a shared bond. They form an odd alliance, but life becomes increasingly complicated as Klein learns more about Ed’s escalating abusive family life and the subsequent CPS investigation of his home. Klein wants nothing more than to be transported from her haunting memories—to be unfettered, and normal again. Yet, the more embroiled she becomes in Ed’s life, the more she’s forced to grapple with her own past. As she navigates through distracted parents, isolation, and bullies, a semblance of clarity surfaces and an unformed, subconscious idea arises: Can she save herself by saving Ed first?

Sometimes life is a leap of blind faith, but sometimes we need a hand to help guide us to the point where we can close our eyes and jump. Out Loud is a story of such a leap; a story of an unexpected friendship between two lost souls hoping to break free of the violence that shadows them. Healy's protagonist, Klein, could allow her past to define her; instead she draws on her own painful memories to connect with Ed, a troubled boy she feels compelled to help. In an effort to keep Ed from spiraling out of control Klein is forced to face her troubled the past while Ed continues to deny the impending danger. Klein opens her heart and reaches out and in doing so finds a way to confront the past and the future. A real page-turner as we watch both Klein’s past and Ed’s futures unfold! Out Loud gives a voice to... More > the children who never had one and in doing so may inspire others to be freed by speaking out; a must read.< Less
