Laurie Halse Anderson's first novel is a stunning and sympathetic tribute to the teenage outcast. The triumphant ending, in which Melinda finds her voice, is cause for cheering (while many readers might also shed a tear or two). After reading Speak, it will be hard for any teen to look at the class scapegoat again without a measure of compassion and understanding for that person--who may be screaming beneath the silence. (Ages 13 and older) --Jennifer Hubert --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Somewere out there there are girls like Melinda and they need every one to know that this kind of thing can happen.
Melinda Sordino and her friends are invited to a high school party the summer before her freshman year . . . Imagine their excitement to be invited to a senior party!
Anderson's unique writing style of having Melinda's story written in a "journal" format held my interest from the very beginning and I could hardly put it down!
