This book is a horrible book. It is very repetitive and all it talks about is depression and how much she hates herself. The book doesn't even tell people how to cope with it. So if someone is having a problem with depression this book wouldn't help it. Lastly the book is not entertaining at all. The 208 pages I read in this book, was the worst pages I have ever read.

It is an amazing book that I had read. My teacher gave the whole class the book about Speak. That is how I startied likely the book. It have a great ending of the story of how she spoke out to everybody that she knew. It was well done. It was somewhat difficult to read but I got through the meaning of it.

I love this book. Even though it starts slow, it speeds up pretty fast. I would recommend this book to people that are mature; also for readers 13 and up. I'm around her age and the author describes what she feels so simple but its like you are there, like your going through what she is going through too. Also I you cant really be sensible necause you will end up being sad and depressed. She may do some stuff, but don't do the same.
