But a knife ain't just a thing, is it? It's a choice, it's something you do.
SummaryAdd a Summary
Todd hears silence in a world of noise. This silence drives forward a quest to outrun his town, outwit a murderer, and reach a destination of Hope.
Todd lives in a town where there are no women, and men hear each other's thoughts all the time. As far as Todd can remember, it's just the way things are. One day, though, Todd finds someone in the forest -- a girl. More incredible, the girl has come from space; the advance scout from a colony ship. And, most incredibly, Todd can't hear her thoughts at all. When the men from Todd's town learn about the girl, terrible secrets are revealed -- and they have to run for their lives through a world larger and more dangerous than Todd ever imagined.
