Emmy (justemmyisabella) I read this around 2000-2004... The book seemed possibly a couple years old by the time that I read it. I believe that it would be categorized as a YA book. All I really remember about the book is that there was a girl that moved next door to a family with 2 boys. The younger of the boys was around her age (I would say 15 or 16) and the older brother was awful (possibly 18-19). The younger boy never talked because when he was very young (around 6 or so) his older brother told him that if he ever talked their parents would die or something that like...
I believe it was written from the new girl's POV. There was also a bit where the boy freaked out at a swimming pool for some reason.
There is a bit of romance between the main girl and the main boy which is endearing because he doesn't talk at all.
It was a shorter book, probably around 300 pages or less.

I would say it's probably around the mid to late 90's -- USA
