No Talking is a story about two fifth grade classes. The protagonist of the story is Dave Packer, who is considered a "loudmouth" and is certainly a leader in the class. His study partner is Lynsey Burgess who is also very talkative and a leader among the girls in the class. The two get in an argument at lunch that ends with a competition between the boys and girls in the class to go two entire days without talking.

Other characters include the teachers of the school and other students:

  • Mrs. Hiatt is the principal of the school.
  • Mrs. Marlow teaches science.
  • Mrs. Akers teaches music.
  • Mr. Burton teaches language arts and is the one teacher who is fascinated by the challenge; he uses it to get creative with communication in his class. 
  • Mrs. Hensley teaches PE.
  • named students include: Kyle, Ellen, and Zeke.
