I Go Quiet

How do you find your voice, when no one seems to be listening? A young girl struggles to make herself heard, believing she is too insignificant and misunderstood to communicate with the people in her life.

We had a great time reading all the books for the East Sussex Children’s Book Award. A librarians dream task. This week we were delighted to announce author David Ouimet a very worthy winner with ‘I go Quiet’.

I Go Quiet by David Ouimet

I Go Quiet is the exquisite story of an introverted girl, struggling to find her place in a noisy world. Through the power of books, creativity and imagination, she begins to see possibilities for herself beyond the present, to a future where her voice will finally be heard.

Beautiful and Inspirational. As an only child this would have reassured me.

Shortlisted for our East Sussex Children’s Book award #ESCBA. Looking forward to meeting the author David Ouimet at the final event in June at the Hippodrome Theatre Eastbourne: https://royalhippodrome.com/
