Early personal identity and character are built, piece by piece, from childhood experiences that color our lives long after those events have faded from view. Depending on our nature, surroundings, and maybe our genetic makeup, echoes of those timesMoreEarly personal identity and character are built, piece by piece, from childhood experiences that color our lives long after those events have faded from view. Depending on our nature, surroundings, and maybe our genetic makeup, echoes of those times remain with us, shaping our relationships, health and career outlooks.

Working in the shadows, they have origins that indeed we would often be hard put to recognize or identify. In cases of personal shock or abuse, even deeper parts of our selves can be thrown into chaos. Not only the obvious, outer layers such as memory and concentration, but also the subtler areas that uphold emotional stability, inner identity and even gender.

Almost anything turns into a possible answer, any place at all, and the effect can be devastating. In this true story of love and survival between two fragile teenagers, every layer of their identity is put to the test. They resist, battle and run trying to escape a dark family secret, drugs and toxic, picture-perfect suburban home lives. Things quickly get complicated. What are you suggesting? asked the doctor. An operation? I shrugged. I dont know.

Maybe. To become a girl? No, just a neutral person. Inspiring, touching and scorchingly honest, Shivers, Slaps and Silence is an intense, unforgettable journey, wildly paced and tinged with the sort of passion, occasional humor and optimism that teenagers do best.
