The book speak by LAURIE HALSE ANDERSON is a book about a teenage girl who in middle school had friends and people liked her, but when she got in high school people just ignored her and she had a hard time fiting in, she makes nicknames for her teachers and a lot of people hate her, but she has on good friend that is nice to her and name is heather and she is active and the opposite of her, she one day gets invited to a teenage party and evreything falls apart, her teachers have diffrent personality in the book like her art teacher is an art freak and her P.E teacher is strict, She is having trouble not only fiting in at school but her grades are bad she is almost falling all of her classes.
The book is full of suspense and emotions they make the character face deferent problems and challenges, that’s what I like about the book, She thinks that nobody cares about her but her parents actually do care because they ask her to do her work , And the teachers that she has all have deferent backgrounds she knows some stuff about her teachers because she talks about it in the book, the message of the book is toget to know people and talk to them you never know how they are felling, at least she has another friend named david an outcast like her, she faces a problem that she dosen’t want to tell anyone but eventually she has to speak the truth.
