Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

This book deserves to be a Book of the Month, but I already have a newer book waiting for next month.  How about a Feb-point-5 BotM?

It is a coincidence that the book pertains to rape as does Tender Morsels. When I borrowed the books I didn’t realize they were the same subject, though handled in very different ways. I have been waiting for years to read Speak, although I hadn’t been reading YA when the book was published. Now seemed like a good time. I believe it will be discussed soon on GoodReads. Didn’t know I was going to cry my eyes out.

I saw on Anderson’s Live Journal page that she couldn’t believe herself when she was writing the book that Melinda was not a real person. That’s how true her character is.
