Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

From popular to outcast, what has happened to change Melinda Sordino’s life so drastically? After making the fatal 911 call which turned her into an outcast, Melinda has refusing to speak about it and no one seems to care.

I felt sympathy for the pain and loneliness Melinda experienced as her friends turned against her and treated her poorly. But I also applauded her strength and sense of humor as she silently dealt with the mean looks and comments. Although no one took the time to understand Melinda’s sudden turn inward, she continued to be insightfully aware of the world around her. She continued to accept others for who they are without judgment, finally choosing to speak out when her ex-best friend was in danger of experiencing the same fate.
