A Knot in Your Stomach
When Amanda moves from China to the United States, the transition is hard, especially since she never speaks outside of her own home. Amanda makes a good friend named Maria, but is taunted by a group of boys and girls who tease her for being so quiet. The harassment grows and becomes serious, 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 that she must finally open up about the bullying at school in order to stop it. Amanda and Maria go to their science teacher to explain the truth behind Amanda’s inability to talk. A Knot in Your Stomach poses the question: Will Amanda ever find her voice?
