I finished Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. Once again, this was not a Battle of the Books selection, but I think it's important to post this review.
It was a very powerful story about the first year of high school for a girl who is being shunned by her best friend and all the rest of the kids. The kids are angry at her because she called the police to a party she was at, but she had a good reason for doing it. Unfortunately, only she (and one other person) knows the reason she called 911.
A great book for 8th graders to read. I really like the style of Laurie Halse Anderson. I'm looking forward to more books by this writer.
