The first time Jeremy heard God sing, we were in the old Ford, rocking back and forth with the wind.

Raymond warned me to keep my answers short and not volunteer information not asked. So I wait to be asked.
This week I am reading The Silence of Murder by Dandi Daley Mackall which has been on my TBR pile since January 19, 2012. Here is the description from Amazon:
Seventeen-year-old Hope Long's life revolves around her brother Jeremy.  So when Jeremy is accused of killing the town's beloved baseball coach, Hope's world begins to unravel. Everyone is convinced Jeremy did it, and since he hasn't spoken a word in 9 years, he's unable to defend himself.  Their lawyer instructs Hope to convince the jury that Jeremy is insane, but all her life Hope has known that Jeremy's just different than other people—better, even. As she works to prove his innocence—joined by her best friend T.J. and the sheriff's son, Chase—Hope uncovers secrets about the murder, the townspeople, her family, and herself. She knows her brother isn't the murderer.  But as she comes closer to the truth, she's terrified to find out who is.
