Sara Alva | 22 comments Hi all. :) Much as my natural inclination is to run and hide rather than self-promote, here I am, trying to do the author-thing. :P

I have a recent release out this past month: Silent Silent by Sara Alva .


Here's the blurb:

Alex’s life as a teenager in South Central LA is far from perfect, but it’s his life, and he knows how to live it. He knows what role to play and what things to keep to himself. He’s got it all under control, until one lousy pair of shoes kicks him out of his world and lands him in a foster care group home.

Surrounded by strangers and trapped in a life where he could never belong, Alex turns to the only person lower on the social ladder than he is: a “special” mute boy. In Sebastian, Alex finds a safe place to store his secrets—those that sent him to foster care, and the deeper one that sets him apart from the other teenagers he knows. But Sebastian has secrets of his own, and when tragedy rips the two boys apart, Alex will stop at nothing to find the answers—even if it means dragging them both through a past full of wounds best left buried.

It might just be worth it, for the slim chance at love.


Genre: Mature YA, coming-of-age/gay romance
*Please note that this novel contains strong language, sexual situations, and abuse themes.

Available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G8UF0JM
