inspired her powerful, unforgettable YA classic Told in the same prose poetry style as SPEAK, SHOUT is the verse memoir of Anderson s life, highlighted by her rape at age thirteen There are stories here about her parents and grandparents about lessons Anderson learned in becoming a writer and stories about her interactions, as a well known author, with young people.I first read SPEAK in my capacity as the children s YA buyer for a small bookstore chain headquartered in the North Bay community I called home I embraced and championed the story of Melinda Sordino s freshman year of high school, and I hand sold many, many copies to young people and adults Beginning a couple of years later, as a teacher s assistant at the local middle school, I read SPEAK aloud to a succession of eighth grade English classes SPEAK is a cautionary tale that all middle schoolers should read in advance of being tossed into the cauldron of high school It is a book that has saved lives, and wrong minded administrators who have tried to censor or ban it and there have been plenty of them over the years should be brought up on educational malpractice charges Two decades after first reading SPEAK, and after traversing mountains of other books, I still consider SPEAK one of my absolute favorite YA reads.I want to now get the word out about SHOUT, both to today s young people and to twenty years worth of Laurie Halse Anderson fans who were as moved by Melinda Sordino s wry observations and travails as I was For all of us old fans, there are scores of Wow moments in SHOUT when we encounter the real people, situations, and events in Laurie Halse Anderson s life that she incorporated into SPEAK There s also a good measure of Anderson s humor here, such as a hysterically funny scene involving translation gone awry when Anderson struggles to learn the subtleties of a new language as a high school exchange student in Denmark.While providing valuable nuggets about the craft of writing and her early stumblings, Anderson shares the roadmap of her path to becoming a writer We learn how she spent time working as a reporter Her observations of an unrepentant sexual predator, whose trial she covered, melded with her nightmares and memories as a rape victim, providing the impetus for writing SPEAK.After the book was published, Anderson was named a National Book Award finalist and, in another pivotal moment, grasped by observing fellow finalist Walter Dean Myers, her solemn responsibility to her young readers Taking this lesson to heart, Anderson has stood on the front lines for the past two decades, teaching young people the principles behind what has recently come to be the metoo movement collectivea what of teensa wince of teensmutter of teensan attitude, a

her parents final days I love how the book begins and concludes with the two people who brought her into the world.As noted in a recent New York Times article, Laurie Halse Anderson was a true pioneer in writing for and talking with young people about sexual abuse and consent SHOUT left me breathless and teary eyed As the brother to a sister, the father to a daughter and, now, the grandfather to a

isolated her , the importance of several key teachers who perhaps saved her life , how she fell into substance abuse realizing it was keeping her down , and how she finally dug deep into herself in order to escape the morass that was her world growing up by leaving home behind and exploring other possibilities in the world on her own My heart and great respect go to Anderson for opening up and

to some other verse novels, Anderson s writing is figurative and poetic It s not just a bunch of sentences with line breaks in between, but these are interesting sentences.There are a lot of other things that surprised me, too, such as Anderson s interactions with the youth of our society, Speak being banned for containing inappropriate material and people in power being oblivious to how important the book is to so many people.Definitely read this if you re a fan of Speak, if you are also outraged at the way society treats sexual assault However, I don t see everyone loving this book

    1. Part One roughly the first half of the book drones on, but Part Two and Three bring thunder and rage and unapologetic ferocity to the issue of sexual abuse, rape, and the unforgivable way society treats women and men who find the courage to come forward and speak the truth the question is born out of true confusionno one ever told him the rules of intimacyor the law, his dad only talks about condomswith a don t get her pregnant warninghis mom says talk to your father so he watches a lot P [...]

Empowering memoir in verse Releases 3 12 2019 and when it does, I m buying my own copy so I can write in the margins and underline quotes I was lucky enough to read an ARC I highly recommend it for all high school collections and it also has incredibly strong adult appeal Every word matters stories matter life stories matter Get this book into as many hands as you can This is than a call to action This is a battle cry.

    6. I don t know what made me cry the ragged grace of the prose, or Laurie Halse Anderson s gut wrenching life story In a collection that feels both autobiographical and impersonal, Laurie s life journey is mixed with her thoughts on rape culture, declarations of belonging, redemption, and hope for anyone who has suffered at the hands of another She pulls no punches, and it can be unbearably hard to read, but this is one of the most important gifts we can give to the generations to come.


    7. This was the first Laurie Halse Anderson Book I read It definitely will not be my last Like Jacqueline Woodson, she writes in a way that lets me overcome my own personal issues with poetry a high school teacher forcing us to find the true meaning of a poem, rather than allowing us to get lost in the words Unfortunately, far too many of us have stories like Laurie s Fortunately, we can all find kinship and hope in her words.
