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.
Even once you know the end, you still want to relive moments that make you really FEEL what Melinda is feeling.
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!
"Speak" is such a great book because most kids can relate to how Melinda feels or just understand her feelings.
