Review: Jubilee (Judith) hasn’t spoken since her mother left her on the island with Aunt Cora. She loves her new 5th grade teacher, has found a dog, and made friends with classmate Mason. She is happy not talking, using only her drawings to communicate. A terrible storm, a lost child, and reuniting with her mother help Jubilee realize that she has a good life that might just be worth talking about.
