The author, Hayden, tells her story as a therapist. She has three little patient who have got lingusitic alteration. One is from a wealthy and famous family who can not speak since childbirth. However, the mother wants to protect her kid and try to hide the anomaly. Later, Hayden help the mother, her husband and their kid to start their new life without being fear of his wealthy father.

Another child is a little 8 year olds girl which had experienced traumatic events in her early childhood. Her father kidnaped her and throw her in a bin after a year underpressure life with him. She often got temper tantrum which means she could be very emotional, hurt herself and other children. This girl also used to lie, making untruthful stories. At the end of the therapy, the little girl get better and can control herself.

Despite of the two little patient, the third patient is an elderly who suffered from stroke which caused her unable to speak. This patient was happy with her visit since she felt lonely. Unfortunately, the patient died.

In my opinion, it is a quite good book. I could know how to behave with temper tantrum children.
