PAPERBACK

August 21, 2018

Set in an America where half the population has been silenced, VOX is the harrowing, unforgettable story of what one woman will do to protect herself and her daughter.

On the day the government decrees that women are no longer allowed more than 100 words daily, Dr. Jean McClellan is in denial--this can't happen here. Not in America. Not to her. 

This is just the beginning.

Soon women can no longer hold jobs. Girls are no longer taught to read or write. Females no longer have a voice. Before, the average person spoke sixteen thousand words a day, but now women only have one hundred to make themselves heard. 

But this is not the end. 

For herself, her daughter, and every woman silenced, Jean will reclaim her voice.

Editorial Reviews

“A petrifying re-imagining of The Handmaid's Tale in the present and a timely reminder of the power and importance of language.”

– Marta Bausells, ELLE UK

This book will blow your mind. The Handmaid’s Tale meets Only Ever Yours meets The Power.”

– Nina Pottell, Prima

"Considering the threat of a society in which children like the protagonist’s six-year-old daughter are deprived of language, VOX highlights the urgency of movements like #MeToo, but also of the basic importance of language.”

– Vanity Fair
