Summary: This is the story of a girl named Fei, her whole life everyone around has never heard a sound. In her small isolated rundown town, located at the top of a mountain, people have been dead for generations, and it’s getting worse. More and more people lose their vision in addition to their hearing. When Fei mysteriously regains her sense of hearing and agrees to seek help, with a boy named Li Wei, will that be enough to save her town?
Cover appeal: The cover is beautiful, and I like how it has Fei on the front. In the book though, it was established that people would wear white for mourning someone’s death. A little confusing, but it is still eye-catching.
Most compelling parts of the book: When Fei began to hear sounds for the first time, I was fascinated by all of the author’s descriptions of sounds. It was very unique and it made sense.
Disappointments: I was not dissipointed in the book, it had a wonderful balence between fantasy and the fictional reality.
