This book hurts, not because it was awful, but because it could be any school in America. It could've, and was, my high school. Although I was fortunate to not experience what the protagonist, Melinda, experienced, high school was far from a pleasant time in my life. Laurie Halse Anderson accurately describes how horrible high school can be if you break one, or, more of the social codes, and how cruel teenagers can be.

It can be a difficult read, but it is well worth it. ( )

In eighth grade, Melinda had friends and good grades. Then, she went to a party during the summer. She drank too much and lost her virginity to an upperclassman who ignored her protests and raped her because he could. Melinda called 9-1-1. When the police arrived at the party, she couldn’t force herself to tell them what happened. Everyone thought she called because of the drinking or some other lame reason. Everyone blamed her for the arrests. So, Melinda Sordino begins freshman year as a social pariah. As the year progresses, Melinda’s grades suffer, and she stops talking to everyone including her parents. The very sight of “Andy Beast” makes her sick to her stomach. Art class becomes Melinda’s sanctuary. The first day, Mr. Freeman tells his students that art is where they will find their “soul” if they dare. As Melinda wrestles with a way to turn the word “tree” into a work of art, she begins to find her voice. When the event that plunged Melinda into silence threatens a repeat, she learns how to speak.

Every teenager and their parent should read this book. Very poignant. ( )
  LuLibro | Jan 22, 2024 |
This is a much better book than I expected. The descriptions left me unexcited, but I was curious from our being on banned lists. It is shocking that this would be considered inappropriate for a youth audience. I realize the sexual implications can be hard for some parents to deal with, but I feel like I've read through and they might realize that this is not a book that glorifies sex and parties, quiet the opposite in fact.

It's not really pleasant or enjoyable to read books like this, even when they're as well-written and engaging as this one is. Honestly, this book troubled my sleep and left me a in a weird mood. But we read books like these because bad stuff happens and these books maybe help us deal with reality. ( )

The plot is gripping and the characters are powerfully drawn, but it is its raw and unvarnished look at the dynamics of the high school experience that makes this a novel that will be hard for readers to forget.
afegit per khuggard | editaKirkus Reviews
 
In her YA fiction debut, Anderson perfectly captures the harsh conformity of high-school cliques and one teen's struggle to find acceptance from her peers. Melinda's sarcastic wit, honesty, and courage make her a memorable character whose ultimate triumph will inspire and empower readers.
afegit per khuggard | editaBooklist, Debbie Carton
 
Anderson expresses the emotions and the struggles of teenagers perfectly. Melinda's pain is palpable, and readers will totally empathize with her. This is a compelling book, with sharp, crisp writing that draws readers in, engulfing them in the story.
afegit per khuggard | editaSchool Library Journal, Dina Sherman
 
But the book's overall gritty realism and Melinda's hard-won metamorphosis will leave readers touched and inspired.
afegit per khuggard | editaPublishers Weekly
 
Laurie Halse Anderson's first novel is a stunning and sympathetic tribute to the teenage outcast. The triumphant ending, in which Melinda finds her voice, is cause for cheering (while many readers might also shed a tear or two).
