Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Speak:

"In a stunning first novel, Anderson uses keen observations and vivid imagery to pull readers into the head of an isolated teenager. . . . Yet Anderson infuses the narrative with a wit that sustains the heroine through her pain and holds readers' empathy. . . . But the book's overall gritty realism and Melinda's hard-won metamorphosis will leave readers touched and inspired." ―Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"An uncannily funny book even as it plumbs the darkness, Speak will hold readers from first word to last." ―The Horn Book, Starred Review

"A frightening and sobering look at the cruelty and viciousness that pervade much of contemporary high school life, as real as today's headlines. . . . The plot is gripping and the characters are powerfully drawn . . . a novel that will be hard for readers to forget." ―Kirkus Reviews, Pointer Review

"Melinda's pain is palpable, and readers will totally empathize with her. This is a compelling book, with sharp, crisp writing that draws readers in, engulfing them in the story." ―School Library Journal

A story told with acute insight, acid wit, and affecting prose. ―Library Journal

Melinda's voice is distinct, unusual, and very real as she recounts her past and present experiences in bitterly "Ironic, occasionally even amusing vignettes. . . . Melinda's sarcastic wit, honesty, and courage make her a memorable character whose ultimate triumph will inspire and empower readers." ―Booklist

Praise for Speak: The Graphic Novel:

“[Emily Carroll] should be recognized as one of the best graphic storytellers out there.”
―Kate Beaton, author of Hark! A Vagrant

“What a talent. What a voice.”
―Mark Siegel, author of Sailor Twain, or The Mermaid in the Hudson

“Carroll knows how to capture uncomfortable emotions―guilt, regret, possessiveness, envy―and transform them into hair-raising narratives.”
New York Times Book Review

Laurie Halse Anderson is the New York Times-bestselling author who writes for kids of all ages. Known for tackling tough subjects with humor and sensitivity, her work has earned numerous American Library Association and state awards. Two of her books, Speak and Chains, were National Book Award finalists. Chains also earned a spot on the Carnegie Medal Short List.

Laurie received the 2009 Margaret A. Edwards Award given by the Young Adult Library Services Association division of the American Library Association for her "significant and lasting contribution to young adult literature."

Mother of four and wife of one, Laurie lives in Northern New York State, an hour south of the Canadian border, where she likes to watch the snow fall as she writes. Right now she's finishing up her next YA novel and researching Ashes, which will conclude the adventure of Isabel and Curzon that readers enjoyed in her historical novels Chains and Forge.
