Thankful for Books: Day 5


I’m thankful for: Speak

If I had a book to give to every incoming high school student to read, it would be this one.  When a naïve freshman girl calls the cops at a back-to-school bender, she loses more than she bargained for.  Speak tackles a tough issue – rape – and the challenges faced by a girl who is literally rendered speechless by her situation.   This short, meaningful book packs a wallop of a punch.  Ages 13+.
