Product Description

Do you believe in “love at first sight”?

Outsiders in a busy Berlin, Marlo and Kirill certainly did not. In fact both boys thought they would never find that special someone.

They didn’t even notice each other until they had passed in the street, their hands gently brushing together and their parting glance causing an instant attraction, which catapults them into another world.

SILENT YOUTH is a powerful tale of those oft-forgotten moments of finding love and acceptance.
