Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

akp:], November 14, 2007

The book Speak is a mind blowing book it’s about a young high school girl who is having a lot of troubles with her life. Melinda just started high school and things are not going to good for her. All her friends from the years past had stopped talking to her because she called the cops at a party she had gone to with a few of her friends. Nobody will let her tell them what really happened at the party; she is scared that nobody will believe what really did happen. She feels like an outcast compared to all the other students that are attending her school. She meets Heather during the second week of school and they sit with each other at lunch Melinda goes to Heathers house a few times. Then Heather all of a sudden wants be in a group of the popular girls, so she leaves Melinda. Now Melinda’s grades go down and nobody wants to be around her. She cannot believe that Heather would turn her back on her, like everybody else had done before. There were many different kinds of conflicts that had happened in this breathtaking story. I liked how the book didn’t say what happened until the end of the story it keep you waiting and not wanting to put the book down. I believe the author is trying to send out a good moral and a lesson to the reader. I think she is trying to say that if you are put into a very bad situation you should not keep it a secret you should go and tell an adult. I do recommend this book, but not for anyone who is younger than twelve.
