Solved in Silence by Glen Sheppard
You are Sarah Beechworth. You have Down syndrome, Autism and you cannot speak. Your only means of communication is by pointing at letters on a board. Your good friend has died and her death has been written off as an awful accident. You believe that foul play is at hand and so you begin to unravel the mystery and find justice for your friend.
Solved in silence is a murder/mystery novel and keeps you enthralled and guessing ‘who did it’ right to the end! Glen created some wonderful characters with his wit and dry sense of humour on life. Through the story Glen beautifully illustrates what it is like to live with Autism. To be limited to communicating, by using Facilitated Communication poses a positive and educational novel for teenages and up.
