The first ten lies they tell you in high school.  "Speak up for yourself—we want to know what you have to say."

In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself.  Speak was a 1999 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature.
