The art of silence is not just learning when not to speak out loud. You have to know when not to text, blog, tweet, email, or otherwise electronically express yourself, too. “Silence is golden.” This proverbial phrase is so short, yet so full of timeless wisdom. The art and discipline of being silent has been lost in this generation.

When Speak was published 20 years ago, there were very few stories like g this book, I think of copies getting passed from person to person, lending solace and understanding.

Laurie Halse Anderson’s gritty and visceral young-adult novel answers the question, Why would someone stay silent about sexual assault. The entire book unfolds over the course of one school year and takes us inside the mind of Melinda, a first /5().

Melinda stays silent due to trauma and fear. The summer before entering high school, Melinda was sexually assaulted at a house party.

She ends up calling the police which causes her peers to. Given that the name of the book is Speak, it is unsurprising that communication versus silence is a critical theme within the e sits at the narrative’s core: Melinda has not told anyone about her rape at the hands of popular senior Andy Evans the previous summer, and has morphed from a happy, popular student to a traumatized outcast as a result.

This book tells the stories so many of us are familiar with but the veracity of which is bound to be doubted by younger generations. The author tells it with simplicity of diction and poetic beauty. And yet it is a captivating 'insider's' tale that has many lessons for .I enjoyed this book.

This is a hard and uncomfortable topic for teenagers and adults. But it must be discussed, understood, and spoken about. When teenagers and kids are quite and don’t speak a lot, the silence speaks volumes and needs to be looked into.

Great book. 2. Silent to the Bone is an amazing children's book. Only E.L. Konigsburg could have written it because almost no other author has such an understanding of young people. No other author could have given the reader such insight to the character's lives.

Silent to the Bone is mostly about these insights.5/5(5).
