Speak Posted by Mrs. Schauer

SPEAK, by Laurie Halse Anderson

She rarely ever talks unless she's in a situation where it's entirely unavoidable. She hasn't always been this way, though. Before the party in August, she was a typical teenager, talking about all sorts of things, from clothes to boys. Now, though, she's afraid to speak because if she does, then she knows what might come out. If she speaks, the rage that is locked inside her might spill out. If she speaks, she might give her tormentor the power to hurt her again. Until she speaks, however, the healing can't begin--once she does, she's on the road to recovery.
