Well worth the purchase
The audiobook accurately reflects the angst, power and pain that the books brings forth. The reader of the books convinces you that she is Melinda and is in the process of experiencing all that the character she is portraying is feeling. I used this audiobook as an instructional tool and my students loved it.

Recommend with Slight Reservations
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Yes. The stereotypes are yawn-producing. Cheerleaders=pretty & shallow; Jocks=stupid and etc. I'd like to see authors have the depth and creativity to defy stereotypes. After hearing the tired cliches, it takes me a minute to return to the story.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The difficult subject matter contained just enough detail without being too graphic or gratuitous. Effective use of metaphors with garden and tree project. It's a good story to read w/your teenage daughter and have discussions about the scary topics of rape and depression.
Have you listened to any of Mandy Siegfried’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, have not.
Was Speak worth the listening time?
Yes. It was a solid read for a YA novel. I would recommend with only slight reservations. I enjoyed the narrator's performance.
