Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson’s powerful novel about teenage trauma, ostracism, and healing, was originally published in 1999. Since then, it has touched the lives of millions of readers. Although it is technically a young adult novel, it has also been read by countless adults. The book has become a classic, and is read and treasured by readers of all ages, including in school curricula, for its sensitive and beautifully-described portrayal of trauma and recovery.
Now this timeless and timely novel is available in an entirely new format: as a graphic novel, complete with striking orginal art by Emily Carroll
