Read Speak: The Graphic Novel Online Free - The critically acclaimed, award-winning, modern classic Speak is now a stunning graphic novel.
"Speak up for yourself-we want to know what you have to say."
From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless--an outcast--because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. Through her work on an art project, she is finally able to face what really happened that night: She was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her.
With powerful illustrations by Emily Carroll, Speak: The Graphic Novel comes alive for new audiences and fans of the classic novel.

SPEAK is one of the most important books ever written for young adults. It was a first dealing with date rape, years before #MeToo . Laurie Halse Anderson captured Melinda’s quiet vulnerability and burgeoning voice with enough sarcasm to feel authentic, making Melinda’s pain even more poignant.

If you love the original novel, you will fall in love all over again with the graphic novel retelling. You get the same story but modernized. I think moving it into this generation made it th...

This is a fantastic graphic novel, but no adaptation will ever live up to the original. Totally worth the read, though!
