I-am-sorry-that-I-haven't-posted-in-a-week-but-I'm-having-another-contest...

Sorry for the lack of posting. I have been busy, reading, or catching up on Being Erika(Love that show) Anyways by the title, I have a contest. I got to meet Laurie Halse Anderson, yesterday. I bought another copy of Speak. So the contest is for a signed copy of Speak.
Here is a summary: Since the beginning of the school year, high school freshman Melinda has found that it's been getting harder and harder for her to speak out loud: "My throat is always sore, my lips raw.... Every time I try to talk to my parents or a teacher, I sputter or freeze.... It's like I have some kind of spastic laryngitis." What could have caused Melinda to suddenly fall mute? Could it be due to the fact that no one at school is speaking to her because she called the cops and got everyone busted at the seniors' big end-of-summer party? Or maybe it's because her parents' only form of communication is Post-It notes written on their way out the door to their nine-to-whenever jobs. While Melinda is bothered by these things, deep down she knows the real reason why she's been struck mute...
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). After reading Speak, it will be hard for any teen to look at the class scapegoat again without a measure of compassion and understanding for that person--who may be screaming beneath the silence.

  27. Ooh, want! I let my sister's friend borrow my copy of Speak, and she moved a few weeks later and never gave it back. I never got around to buying another copy.

    Uhh, I think I started following you on the 25th of March. I'm not sure if that counts as being a current or new follower since I didn't enter until now.
