A Knot in Your Stomach
When Amanda moves from China to the United States, the transition is hard, especially since Amanda never speaks outside of her own home. At school, Amanda makes one good friend, Maria, but winds up being bullied by a group of girls and boys who tease her for being so quiet. The harassment grows and becomes a serious issue, yet Amanda remains silent. When Maria's family suffers a tragedy, she comes to stay with Amanda and her family. As Amanda begins to feel closer to Maria, she realizes she must open up about the bullying at school in order to stop it. Amanda and Maria go to their Science teacher, Mr. Ryan, and devise a plan that reveals the truth behind Amanda's inability to talk openly. Will the bullying end? Will Amanda find her voice?
