Very well written and engrossing young adult novel - I finished it in two sittings, which is pretty remarkable nowadays. Filled with wry humor and carefully observed details of adolescence.
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
"A remarkable book -- and not just for young adults. The perspective is what is special. The reader trails along with the protagonist, not quite sure what is going on. All is revealed, of course. I'll never forget the categorization of the groups a..." Read more of this review »
