Review: Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

Thursday, December 18, 2014
Why I chose this book: 
In the spring of 2015, I am going to be taking a Lit for Young Adults class in grad school. We have an awesome list of 12 or so YA and MG books, and this was one of the titles on the list. I ended up getting it on audiobook because I had a long trip to take back to my parents home for the holidays, and that was probably the best choice I could have made.

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Publisher: Puffin
Publish Date: October 22nd, 1999
Format: Audiobook
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary/Realistic Fiction

Melinda Sordino busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops. Now her old friends won't talk to her, and people she doesn't even 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 it in, would blow her carefully constructed disguise to smithereens. And then she would have to speak the truth. This extraordinary first novel has captured the imaginations of teenagers and adults across the country. (Goodreads)
