Shay Siegel wrote her first novel, Fractured, based on trials she’s dealt with during her life. As a young girl, she experienced selective mutism, which would not allow her to talk in certain circumstances.
Her book is a YA that has a football player discovering that other people in the world has problems that he wasn’t even aware of. She hopes to continue writing more books dealing with mental health issues in teens and young adults.
