(M94'12) Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson, World Reading Circle (tammikuu 2013)


What started as "I'll read a little during breakfast" turned into "I can't put this down." That this book is banned in so many places speak volumes ... volumes that do not say good things about those who advocate for its removal.

There are so many comments along the lines of, "Every girl should read this." I'd say, "So should every guy."

Melinda Sordino busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so her old friend won't talk to her, and people she doesn't 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 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.

Lately I've been too busy to read like I used to, but tonight I read all of Speak in one sitting when I was supposed to be doing schoolwork. If you haven't read this book yet, get on it.
