In the book Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson, protagonist Melinda Sordino enters her freshman year of high school with a dark secret. The entire school feels like a minefield to her, and it seems.
Melinda Sordino begins her freshman year at Merryweather High depressed and alone. Throughout the day, students bully and isolate her. Her former best friend, Rachel, is particularly cruel. The only person who will talk to her is Heather, an annoying new girl in town who is focused on social advancement. Cynical but perceptive, Melinda mocks. The critically acclaimed, award-winning, modern classic Speak is now a stunning graphic novel."Speak up for yourself―we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school.
I enjoyed this book. This is a hard and uncomfortable topic for teenagers and adults. But it must be discussed, understood, and spoken about. When teenagers and kids are quite and don’t speak a lot, the silence speaks volumes and needs to be looked into. Great book. 2 people found this helpful.
