Silent to the BoneBook - 2000
Connor is sure his best friend, Branwell, couldn't have hurt Branwell's baby half sister, Nikki. But Nikki lies in a coma, and Branwell is in a juvenile behavioral center, suspected of a horrible crime and unable to utter the words to tell what really happened. Connor is the only one who might be able to break through Branwell's wall of silence. But how can he prove Branwell didn't commit the unspeakable act of which he's accused -- when Branwell can't speak for himself?
From the critics

Other: Subtle racist comments directed towards Vietnamese-Americans. They are not meant to reflect any personal opinions or anything, but these comments are mainly in the story to help the reader understand part of certain characters' dislike for another character (they are pretty much stereotyping the person in question). (Irrelevant to what I just wrote) Smoking is in the story as well.
Sexual Content: The main characters are 13 year old boys, and it is hinted that they are going through puberty, as they don't seem sure about how to feel about sexual attractions. A sub-genre for this book is Coming-of-Age, so these feelings are mentioned a couple of times in the book. A couple is hinted at having sexual encounters multiple times.
