(M94'12) Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson em World Reading Circle (Janeiro 2013)

Críticas

Um romance de estreia extraordinário; uma obra-prima vencedora (e finalista) de inúmeros prêmios sobre uma jovem que opta por calar em vez de dizer a verdade. Fale! ... Um romance transformador, corajoso, capaz de fazer refletir sobre temas fundamentais – porém espinhosos como o bullying – do cotidiano dos adolescentes.
