About the Book

Fourteen-year-old Sadina is fighting the clock to keep her mother from being arrested for a crime she didn’t commit. Sadina thinks her sister, Maddie, has information that could prove their mother is innocent. There’s one big problem: Maddie can’t talk. She has selective mutism, an anxiety disorder that makes it impossible for her to talk to anyone—except Bella, her robotic cat. Sadina searches desperately for a way to help her sister communicate. She teams up with her friends to transform Bella into Chattercat, a talking robot that just might get some answers from Maddie.
