How should I sound?
How should I look?
When it’s my turn to speak,
I go quiet.
Here is the story of an introverted girl, hiding in silence in a world that seems overpowering and hostile. In the power of imagination and the pages of books, she sees possibilities for herself and discovers a place where her words ring loud and true.
David Ouimet’s exquisite debut translates the interior world of an anxious child into intricate paintings that convey how it feels to be lonely, isolated, and scrutinized―and how it feels to break free and soar. I Go Quiet will resonate with anyone who has struggled to find their voice.
