Speak Book Review

Speak Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Kidzworld is excited to bring you a book review of Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, sent in by one of our very own users. Check it out.

Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

Melinda was a relatively normal girl, although some would consider her an outcast this year. She doesn't sit with anyone. She doesn't wear the "cool" clothes. In fact, she doesn't even speak most of the time. The safest place, to her, is in her own head and she'd like to keep it that way.


But it wasn't always like that. At one time she was social, loving, and outgoing, until one night, something changed at a party her friend had. She called the cops and crashed it. Her friends never did forgive her, although if they really new what happened that late summer night, they would probably change their minds about her...


This book includes humor as well as drama, and is sure to be of interest to anyone whose ever been shy or felt like an outcast. Or, if you're just looking for something new to read, it's worth a try. Laurie Halse Anderson brings a tough, tender and darkly funny story of a teenage outcast to your bookshelf.

    How Often Do You Gossip?

    • Every second of the day.
    • Only when I hear something really juicy.
    • I try not to gossip about people cuz it's mean.
    • Never - I know how to keep my mouth shut.

    Once upon a time,   @AwesomeIvysaurGirl34   got braces. We were discussing how to stop the first bit of pain, and after a few answers, I remembered Orajel. So, Ivy asked where to find Orajel, and I said, "Uhh... I dunno... XD I think Taget?" I didn't realize that I had forgotten the R, so Ivy corrected it. At first, I thought she had never heard of Target! But then I remember seeing a Target in pretty much every state that I've visited. Moral of the story: When life gives you apples, make apple pie!
