Written by Greg Howard

Riley wants to bring his Mom back, but he doesn’t know where she went. His life is full of difficulties: a distant father and brother, a struggle with his attraction to boys, and his nighttime bedwetting. These are all things that make it difficult to trust in other people. With one friend, Gary, he is able to be open and get support. He finally follows his heart to find The Whispers from the stories that his mom used to tell him. He finds them, along with many other surprises. This is a beautiful story of realizing the unconditional love and acceptance that we have surrounding us in friends and family.
