When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.

Harsh words indeed, from Brian Nelson of all people. But, D.J. can’t help admitting, maybe he’s right.

When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.

Stuff like why her best friend, Amber, isn’t so friendly anymore. Or why her little brother, Curtis, never opens his mouth. Why her mom has two jobs and a big secret. Why her college-football-star brothers won’t even call home. Why her dad would go ballistic if she tried out for the high school football team herself. And why Brian is so, so out of her league.

When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.

Welcome to the summer that fifteen-year-old D.J. Schwenk of Red Bend, Wisconsin, learns to talk, and ends up having an awful lot of stuff to say.

This is a perfectly nice story read by a capable narrator. It is little more because at the heart it isn't more than that, thought it does try to be. That's the problem, it's trying to do too many things at once with the feud in the family, the communication issues, the learning-someone-isn't-who-you-think-they-are or maybe they are, the gay friend, and the whole I-want-to-be-a-football-player angle. It's too much for a clear and focused story. So, again, a nice little story, whose writing is essentially flawed due to an overloaded plot and collection of under-developed themes.
