Review: Speechless by Hannah Harrington

There is something amazing that happens when you read a book that both speaks to you and moves you at the same time.  Speechless is about the power and consequences of words, both spoken and written.  Harrington writes with such raw truth and exposes the harshness of bullying, gossip and hate crimes.  I was instantly pulled into Chelsea's world and it took such hold of me that I finished the book in one day.  This is a story that needs to be read, by everyone.  Not only will you feel compelled to share this read with others, but you will be compelled to be the action and the change.  I cannot say enough how much I loved this novel and I cannot wait to see what else Harrington is going to share with the world!  5 stars!

Book Description

August 28, 2012 Harlequin Teen
Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can't keep a secret

Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.

Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she's ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.

But there's strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she's done. If only she can forgive herself.
