For an author to so eloquently and accurately tell us what's going on inside a teenage girl's head is amazing enough...to do it and address a strikingly painful and difficult topic as Anderson does is miraculous. Anyone who works with teenagers -- and all teenagers -- should to read this.

This was a very inspiring book about a young girl who feels the weight of the world on her shoulders because of a secret she feels she needs to keep hidden. I dont think Ive ever wanted to look and see what happened in the end of the book as much as I wanted to do in this one. Laurie Halse Anderson has a unique ability to be in the mind of a troubled young teenager.

I have never been so tempted to turn to the end and find out early what happened in a book. Because it is all about the impact one traumatic incident at a party had on a teenager's entire year in high school. Not knowing the whole story, the other students hate or ostracize her. She's riddled with guilt to the point of feeling physically ill and fear and confusion sit on her so heavy she cannot bring herself to talk to anyone: parents, teachers, friends. The self-incriminating, melodramatic inner dialog reveals it all. Of the many books I've read, this is one of the most realistic (and bitterly humorous) pictures of what high school is like. Attitudes of teachers and students, cliques and popularity struggles, how pointless it all can seem. Some passages just made me laugh out loud. I thoroughly recommend this book. It's funny, sad, attention-grabbing (translation: I couldn't put it down) and short enough that no matter how tempting, you can make it all the way to the revelation at the end without peeking.

Speak was a great book. Melinda's sad tale will keep you reading tell the end. Laurie Halse Anderson is a great author who really know's how to show the reader what her story is about through word choice.
