Speak

I am resurrecting the old book review arm of this blog as of right now. I’ve purchased a lot of books online lately, and gotten a few more from the library. I’ve been getting a lot of the books that I read as a kid, or wish that I would have. In the second category is Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson, a book I really wish would have been around when I first started high school.

Title: Speak
Author: Laurie Halse Anderson
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Published: 1999
ISBN: 014131088X

My Rating: 10 / 10. Perfect. Five Stars.

This book is, as of two days ago, one of my favorite novels of all time. I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone I know (and everyone I don’t, such as the majority of the people who this read this blog). Although I don’t know if it’s international appeal would be the same, anyone who is, or ever was, a student at an American high school should appreciate this story. More later…
