You are Joy from DON'T BREATHE A WORD!

If you answered mostly A's, then you are Joy, the main character in DON'T BREATHE A WORD...

I scooped up the strands of cut hair and thrust them into a plastic bag, right next to what was left of the Manic Panic bleach kit and the sack full of dirt from the garden. An unknown girl stared back in my bathroom mirror. Jagged white bob. Pale eyebrows, oddly light against fading summer skin. Black rings around the eyes, transforming her…me…from a suburban girl into a hollowed-out specter.

That’s what I’ll be, if I’m lucky. Invisible.

And silent. I had to be. There was only one chance for escape.

If you are Joy, you feel powerless to change your crushing life, but you find strength you didn't know you had to face your demons when you take matters into your own hands and find allies and true love on the streets of Seattle.
