Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
read DEVOURED this book in a few hours.
I don’t really know why I was so compelled by Anderson’s writing, but I guess it was because it felt so real. Melinda, the narrator/protagonist, is completely realistic. No, I can’t personally relate to what she dealt with, but I felt so inside he head and her reasonings. I kind of just wanted to jump in the pages and be just that one voice to tell her, “It’s not your fault!”
Whew. So, yeah. Read it.
I know this is a short post, but I don’t know what else to tell you. GO! READ!
