Speak

Categories

by Laurie Halse Anderson

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. There’s something she’s trying not to think about. Something about the night of the party that, if she let’s it in, it would blow her carefully constructed disguise to smithereens. And then she would have to speak.

Speak is a book about depression. Depression is the unspoken theme that defines Melinda's behavior. I like how the book was well written.

I would recommend this book to everyone. This is such an important book for the he content and message it presents.
