Speak

by Laurie Halse Anderson

Speak

Melinda, a freshman at Merryweather High, had a very bad experience the summer before. She was raped by an incoming senior, Andy Evans. She didn't tell anyone what happened. Since she called the police at the party, all of her friends got angry and no one talked to her. She eventually became mute. Towards the end of the year Andy tried to rape her again. She finally spoke up and told him no, which caused him to stop and got him in trouble.

"Why can't I scream, say something, do anything? Why am I so afraid?"
