Speak written by Laurie Halse Anderson

(reviewed by a tenth grader)

Speak was a very good book. The way the author portrays and expresses the feelings of the main character, Melinda, is very well done. the reader will feel the emotions of the characters and each chapter will leave you dying for more.
