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.

  2. Thank you for the giveaway. Speak has been on my to read list for awhile and it's moved to the top because of all the controversy. I hope this controversy really sparks people to think for themselves, that is what we need a lot more of!

  5. Thanks! I've seen the movie, and if the book is anything like it I know I'll enjoy it and those critics don't know anything.
