Speak: The Graphic Novel Read 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.

“When people don't express themselves, they die one piece at a time.”
I first picked up a copy of Speak at the library some time in the very early 2000s, when I wish I’d been too young to know how the world wor...

If you're a fan of the original novel, you are going to adore the graphic novel.
The art is flawless. Every setting, character and emotion looks just how I pictured them. Kristen Stewart was great in the movie, though the Melinda depicted here is more accurate to how she briefly described herself...

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.

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

Wow. Emily Carroll's art is the perfect compliment to Laurie Halse Anderson's compelling story, sadly just as relevant and needed now as it was when it was originally published almost 20 years ago. This new format updates the story a bit and will bring this powerful novel to life for a new genera...

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...

Even after reading Speak at least a dozen times, reading it as a graphic novel still packed an emotional punch. This is excellent and a must-read.

When I learned a few months ago that Laurie Halse Anderson’s 1999 YA classic Speak was being adapted as a graphic novel, I assumed it would be just that, an adaptation. The new version of Speak is more than that though. Way more.
Speak: The Graphic Novel is still the story of Melinda, a freshman w...
