Amber Brown spent her entire existence believing Dave was her father. When her mother reveals this is untrue, she goes through an emotional spiral with depression. It's hard for her to believe her mother had lied to her all this time.

A move to a new home and town causes Amber to be consumed by her "darkness" and reverts to cutting to free herself from her pain.

When Casey, her new friend enters her life, she introduces Amber to parties, drugs, and Amber's new boyfriend Landon. The secret of cutting begins to take affect on Amber as she tries to hide it from her friends and family. In the mist of everything, Amber has the desire to find out who her biological father is.

Follow Amber through her trials of depression and cutting, along with the discovery of love.

  1. Hi Raebeth, I wanted to come show my love and appreciation for your book! I think it is great you are bringing some awareness to the serious issue of cutting. I hope your tour is fantabulous and everyone bows down to your awesomeness!

    Happy New Year,

    1. Thank you for stopping by. I know too many that have been touched by depression and cutting. I think it's time we make awareness to these subjects instead of hushing them.

      Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate them.

  2. Thank you for being part of the tour. I appreciate it.

  3. Hey all. Just wanted to say Silenced is an amazing book and is a highly recommended read! Happy Wednesday (:

    1. Thank you Zed for your wonderful support and for doing all you do for Silenced.

  4. Glad to be a part of it, RaeBeth :) Best of Luck!

  5. First I would like to thank you Lisa for your post in the Blog Tour for Silenced.....It turned out great!! The reason I picked up Silenced would be because it focuses on a topic that I encountered in school. One of my best friends would always be cutting herself and now being able to see what is going on from that persons perspective is a real eye opener!! I'm really enjoying it....Thanks Raebeth!! :)

  6. Happy New Year. I'm looking forward to reading your book. I once knew a young girl (a friend's daughter) who was a cutter. I'm glad that you're bringing awareness to it. :)

  7. I want to thank you for writing this type of book and bringing this type of depression to a new awareness... We need to reach out to those in need... They need to know that they are not alone....Great book!!!
