Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

Back Cover: Melinda Sordino busted an end-of-summer part by calling the cops, so her old friends won't tak to her, and people she doesn't know hate fer from a distance. The safest place to be is alone, insider her own head. But even that's not safe. Because there's something she's trying not to think about, something about the night of the party that, if she left it in, would blow her carefully constructed disguise to smihereens. and then she would have to speak the truth. This book was really good, and very addicting. It was sad too, but it was like you were confused of what she was refering to, until she told the story of how she got raped. I can't imagine that, at only 13 years old. That would be devastating, so she just doesn't want to talk to anyone, but art makes her see things. At first she can't seem to get the tree art down, but then she slowly grips it and understands it. While she becomes sort of friends with Heather, she is also completely alone, once Heather deserts her for another group of girls. And even her parents have no idea what's going on. Her grades are dropping and she isn't talking. This was a really good book and this author just has a talent for words. Oh and I so wan to see the movie they made with this but I dunno how toget it since it was at the film festival, but Kristin Stewart is in it! Oh well wish me luck finding it.
