Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson, is one of my all time favorites and very popular in the CHHS library.  The novel  is ten years old—can you believe it?  To celebrate the anniversary, Anderson decided to create a “found” poem using lines and words from letters she has received from fans about the novel over the last 10 years.  The result is a compelling text—you can find the text of that found poem here:
