Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Published August 28, 2012

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.

Before beginning this book, I’d heard mostly good things about it so I was pretty excited to get it. When I first started reading, I was a bit wary. Why? The main character seemed really snotty. But then she makes a mistake that leads to her being an outcast and her character beings to develop. And then I can barely tear my eyes away.

Speechless is a hard book to review because while it isn’t perfect, it kept my attention and made me fall in love with it. It made me overlook any weaknesses. If there are weaknesses, I cannot recall them at the moment. I loved everything about this book. I loved the writing. The story. The characters (Sam & Asha are AMAZING side characters, by the way). The relationships (Sam’s going on my top ten male book characters, right beside Martin from The Mockingbirds).

It just left me, what can I say?—Speechless.
