Review: After trying to kill herself, Charlie is committed to a psych ward where she decides that keeping mute seems the best option. As she avoids conversation with others, Charlie ponders her situation: homelessness, drug addiction, and an abusive mother. A doctor in the ward provides drawing materials which help Charlie open up. Without insurance, Charlie is released early to live with her friend in Arizona. A boyfriend at work is not the best influence as Charlie tries to keep on the straight and narrow in this pensive read for teens who might make bad decisions but can learn from a character who turns her life around.
