I think that the theme of this book was discovery and growing. Calli discovered her voice, Toni discovered why Calli lost her voice and who caused her to, Ben grew by learning to take care of his mother and sister, Louis discovered who he really wanted to spend his life with, and we as an audience discovered all of the secrets hiding among the characters in this novel.
A quote from the book that i believe shows discovery is between Calli and her counselor at the end of the novel, when Calli has began to talk again, and is looking at pictures that Mr. Wilson has had her draw.
Calli: "This is the picture. This is what you were showing me in my dream. My voice."
Mr. Wilson: "Of course it was, Calli. Of course it was. You had it with you the entire time."
