During the trials Oakley's first time on the stand and looking at her dad for the the first time again she passed out and was taken to the hospital.
She just had an anxiety attack and had a concussion from hitting her head. The trials were rough because they couldn't find the evidence of her dad taking pictures of her on his computer so he tried to convince the jury she was doing it for attention and that's why she mute herself and then came up with this story.

Broken Silence (Silence, #2) by Natasha Preston
It appears that she is on a beach, which is where she would go for walks in Australia in order to have some time to herself.
I actually liked this book more than the first one and stayed up all night to read it in one sitting. I liked it because she was letting people know what happened to her and she was finally giving the details that would give justice to her and anyone else affected by the abuses of her father and Frank. Of course, this was incredibly difficult for Oakley, and she had her moments when she didn't know what exactly what the right thing to do was.
She decided that as long as she told the absolute truth, she would be able to find closure and hoped that the truth would be believed by the jury. And of course, there was also the situation between her and Cole.
Unlike many authors, Natasha did not grow up as a serial book reader as she drifted through school often achieving average grades. After school, she found herself doing mind-numbing receptionist and administration jobs as there was nothing else she was qualified for. It was in that she accidentally stumbled into writing. She was looking for an app in the App Store when an amateur writing site named Wattpad caught her eye.
Book Review: Broken Silence by Natasha Preston
She had at last found something to do during her free time and for a few months lost herself reading stories from numerous little known authors. During this time an idea to put some of her own stories that had been forming in her head.
Natasha who had previously only read school books and famously has few mentors if any became hooked once she started writing. She credits Wattpad for opening her eyes to what was possible by giving her an escape from her mundane life ,and then providing the confidence to dive into the world of authorship.
Broken Silence by Natasha Preston | Book Review | Juliann Guerra
The leads in the series are Cole and Oakley, both of whom tell the story from their own perspectives making for an interesting narration style. Oakley is a brave, smart, and strong girl who has undergone some of the most traumatic of events during her childhood. However, over the course of the series, she grows as she fights her abuser and tries to find justice.
Cole is a likable and fun person that loves Oakley and is afraid of ever losing her as he believes she is his soul mate. Another secondary character in the novels is Jasper who is brother to Oakley, that is similar in temperament to her boyfrind and is also very protective of Oakley.
The young adult novel is set in the modern era that it mentions several pop stars in the stories such as Justin Bieber and One Direction. The overriding theme of the novels is that tragedies and hard times are the lot of every human.
They assert that the best thing to do is to face up to them and be brave even when they suck you dry. The traumatic event had robbed her and her family of an important thing — her voice.
