Somebody Loves You by Mona Arshi 

Format: Audiobook
Audiobook ISBN: 9788728047606
Narrated by Mona Arshi

A teacher asked me a question, and I opened my mouth as a sort of formality but closed it softly, knowing with perfect certainty that nothing would ever come out again.

Ruby gives up talking at a young age. Her mother isn’t always there to notice; she comes and goes and goes and comes, until, one day, she doesn’t. Silence becomes Ruby’s refuge, sheltering her from the weather of her mother’s mental illness and a pressurized suburban atmosphere.

Plangent, deft, and sparkling with wry humor, ‘Somebody Loves You’ is a moving exploration of how we choose or refuse to tell the stories that shape us.
