Your Voice is All I Hear By: Leah Scheier Release Date: September 1, 2015
Everything about Jonah
is unexpected. On the first day of school, he sits next to April, when
he could have chosen to sit with the popular girl. He turns down an
invitation to join the school team and declares he'd rather paint. He
encourages April to develop her musical talent and shrugs off the
bullies that torment them. April isn't surprised to find herself falling for Jonah. The unexpected part is when he falls for her too. But
the giddy happiness of their first romance begins to fade when Jonah's
unpredictability begins to take a darker turn. April understands that
her boyfriend is haunted by a painful memory, but his sudden mood swings
worry her. She can't explain his growing fear of cellphones, electric
keyboards, and of sounds that no one else can hear. Still, no matter what happens, April is sure that she'll always stand by him. Until Jonah finally breaks and is committed to a psychiatric ward. Until schizophrenia changes everything. Though
everyone urges her to let him go, April stays true to Jonah. But as the
boy she adores begins to disappear in front of her, she has to face her
worst fear: that her love may not be enough to save him. (Goodreads)
