SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson

Hmm, what can I say? This book was really bad. Boring, no worthy plot, flat characters, and nothing whatsoever to make me interested in the story (not that there was much of one). I don't recommend this at all, unless you want something to fall asleep to. This book was a major snore, I don't know exactly what the point of it was. Just awful.

"I'm just like them—an ordinary drone dressed in secrets and lies."

Overall Opinion: C-

Alicia Awwwwww, sorry you didn't like it! I read this 4 or 5 years ago when I was in high school and thought it was amazing - really powerful and beautiful. I love Lauire Halse Anderson, I've always though she was an incredibly talented and poetic writer, plus she has strong messages for young girls unlike so much of the you-need-a-boyfriend-or-you're-worthless stuff that is out right now, lol. Different strokes for different folks, as they say. :) Hope you enjoy your next read more.

Katie This is exactly how I felt after reading it
