(M94'12) Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson a World Reading Circle (gener 2013)


I really liked about a third of this book but the other two thirds had me fuming!
Everyone was horrible to Isabelle! All of them! And she believed all the horrible things that they said to her and decided that she was mean and selfish and self absorbed. Which was a complete lie. She searched for Ruth for months, saved her more than once, looked after her when she was deathly ill, found her somewhere to live and eat, and worried herself half sick thinking about caring for Ruth.
