Today I recommend: Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.

Melinda’s first day of high school is off to an awful start.  She called the police at the end of the summer part, and now everyone hates her.  Even people she doesn’t know.  Melinda just needs a friend to tell what happened at the party that night.  To tell why she called the police.  Once the truth is told, it will change everything.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a story that has realistic fiction and suspense.  Throughout the whole book I was waiting for Melinda to tell someone her secret.  Once Melinda revealed her secret, I was shocked!

You can find this book in the Young Adult Fiction section at YA ANDERSON.
