Speak: The Graphic Novel

Written by Laurie Halse Anderson and Illustrated by Emily Carroll

From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda is friendless --- an outcast --- because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. Through her work on an art project, she is finally able to face what really happened that night: She was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. With powerful illustrations by Emily Carroll, Laurie Halse Anderson's SPEAK: The Graphic Novel comes alive for new audiences and fans of the classic novel.
