Silence is safe. Fate is not. When Sovern Briggs survives a car crash, she stops talking in order to seal in the memory of the final sounds of her mother's life. As conflict with her father builds and failure in school looms, Sovern seeks relief in a dangerous boyfriend and in speed's adrenaline edge. These needs collide, leading Sovern to a snowboarding accident that changes her future . . . and perhaps that of our universe. Life at the Speed of Us weaves dyslexia, math, cutting-edge science, genius, and love into a young woman's reluctant journey toward grace.
