Hi Cameron,

One of my favourite books as a teenager was So Much to Tell You....
by John Marsden (Australian writer) which is about a girl who doesn't
speak and is attending boarding school. She has a physical deformity
from acid having been thrown onto her face. Highly recommend it!

hundred of surviving, we must attempt it: but if we have none, 
absolutely none then it would be self destruction, and we need not.'"
