SpeakSpeak by Laurie Halse Anderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was a good book in that it showed how a person can find the strength to keep growing and living after a tragic event. Melinda, is ostracized by her classmates in a way that I found to be realistic after calling the police while attending a party. While some of the events that wrap up the book were a bit unrealistic they didn't ruin the satisfying ending. This secret Melinda carries is one that teenage girls will be interested in but very young teens or younger need parent guidance before reading this book. Parent guidance is recommended only because of the topic not because of graphic details.
