Speak – Laurie Halse Anderson

speak1

Melinda Sordino busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so her old friends won’t talk to her, and people she doesn’t know hate her from a distance. The safest place to be is alone, inside her own head. But even that’s not safe. Because there’s something she’s trying not to think about, something about the night of the party, that if she let in, would blow her carefully constructed disguise to smithereens. And then she would have to speak the truth.

This book was good, but very sad. The main character becomes an outcast in school after a tragic incident that has left her unable to communicate with anyone. This book is also very empowering to anyone who has been a victim of abuse. -Brittany, Teen Clerk
