According to Goodreads, on this day five years ago, I was reading Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. According to The American Library Association, Speak was one of the Top 100 Banned/Challenged Books between 2000 to 2009. It’s a vitally important novel and one I highly recommend.
Have you read it? In 2004 a film adaptation was released which I have also seen. Both the novel and the film offer a range of talking topics for parents of teens.
