Never fear citizens! I'm here to answer your questions.

For starters, why have I even started up this site, Friends On Books?

-Laurie Halse Anderson-

Told through the eyes of a timid ninth grader with no self-esteem, Speak is a definitely a noteworthy read. Readers will find themselves intrigued by Melinda Sordino's unbroken silence as she struggles through a school year with a secret that shouldn't be kept. Follow along as Melinda nearly spirals past the point of no return and rejoice as her troubles seem to plateau, although I won't tell you how. That's something you'll have to find out for yourself.


Just remember, no matter what you're going through, it's probably nothing compared to Melinda's problems.
