Jubilee is an engaging realistic fiction book about a girl with selective mutism. She is able to speak, but past trauma has made it emotionally impossible to communicate. Fortunately, Jubilee is surrounded by a good support system. This book explores what it means to be a friend and the courage needed to overcome. I recommend it to fourth through sixth graders that enjoy serious themes.
