Bookspeak SPEAKS UP
Speak is one of my favorite novels, in fact it's one of the reasons that I chose Bookspeak as the name of my blog. When I saw the article calling Speak "soft porn" I was horrified. Speak is a beautiful, moving novel about the negative affects of sexual abuse, and there are no graphic scenes. The Speak I read is nothing like the Speak Dr. Wesley Scroggins describes in his article. I would go so far as to guess that he hasn't even read it. To show my support for Speak I am giving away a copy of this wonderful book. I hope all of you give Speak a chance. Don't listen to the narrow-minded people that try to censor books.
