Program description

Pick up a copy of this month's book in Teen Central and join us for a discussion and snacks. 

This month we will be discussing Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. 

Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year Melinda knows this is a big fat lie. She is friendless, 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 in art class she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends her school and is still a threat to her, but this time Melinda refuses to be silent
