Before long, she is afraid to ask her questions out loud, and the thing she wants to know the most is, What's on the other side of that wall? Maia tries all kinds of ways to get to the top, but none of them seem to work. Finally, she summons the courage to speak up, and a most surprising thing happens-she gets an answer! By using her voice, and with help from others, Maia gets to the top of the wall, and a whole new world opens up!
