Resonant and fiercely authentic. This timely, critically acclaimed and award-winning modern classic is now a powerful graphic novel.

'I said no.'

Melinda is an outcast at Merryweather High. Something happened over the summer - something bad - and now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen. So what's the point in speaking at all?

Through her work on an art project, Melinda is finally able to face what really happened that night. But before she can make peace with the ghosts of the past, she has to confront the reality of the present - and stop someone who still wishes to do her harm. Only words can save her. She can't stay silent. Not any more.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Anderson's timeless and important tale of high-school sexual assault and its aftermath undergoes a masterful graphic novel transformation... With the rise of women finding their voices and speaking out about sexual assault in the media, this reworking of the enduring 1999 classic should be on everyone's radar... Powerful, necessary, and essential. * Kirkus starred review *
Hypnotizing and heart-breaking, with the kind of empowering finish that unshackles protagonist and readers alike. * Shelf Awareness starred review *
With spellbinding artwork, this exceptional adaptation masterfully does justice to its source material while adding new depth and nuance. * Booklist starred review *
This potent retelling of the modern classic Speak blends words and images to create magic: a new representation of a teen whose voice is ripped from her, the battles she must wage to find it again, and the triumph of finally being able to speak out. * School Library Journal starred review *

“Powerful and Poignant”

This is by far one of the most powerful things I’ve read in a long time. The illustrations perfectly match the text, and bring to mind the style of Alison Bechdel’s ‘Fun Home’. It’s a beautiful telling of a tragic... More
