Laurie Halse Anderson's first novel is a stunning and sympathetic tribute to the teenage outcast.

If you can't seem to find your voice just like Melinda Sordina read the book Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson.
In my opinion the book was good because it kept you interested most of the time and made you want to keep reading so that you could find out what happened next.
It was a very interesting novel because it shows a teenage girl, Melinda, struggling with her traumatic emotions and how to express them.
