Lia tem de lidar com o pai, que é um renomado escritor, sua madrasta e a mãe, uma cardiologista que vive ocupada, salvando a vida dos outros. Contudo, seu maior tormento é a voz dentro de si mesma, que não a deixa se esquecer de manter o controle, continuar forte e perder mais, sempre perder mais, e pesar menos. Bem menos.
A adolescente Hayley Kincain e o pai, Andy, passaram cinco anos viajando de caminhão, fugindo das lembranças que os assombram. Agora, estão de volta à cidade natal de Andy para tentar levar uma vida "normal", mas os horrores que ele testemunhou na guerra ameaçam destruir a existência de pai e filha. De mãos e pés atados, Hayley é obrigada a vê-lo ser lentamente derrotado pela depressão, e se entregar às drogas e à bebida para calar os demônios interiores. É então que seu próprio passado vem à tona, e o presente se estilhaça... anunciando um futuro totalmente incerto.
O que você deve fazer para proteger a vida de seu pai quando a morte o está rondando? Que atitude tomar quando os papéis de pai e filha se invertem? E o que acontece quando aquele garoto encantador e divertido entra no seu mundo sem pedir licença e, pela primeira vez, você se vê pensando no futuro?

A fiercely authentic, critically acclaimed and award-winning modern classic.
'Speak up for yourself - we want to know what you have to say.'
From my first day at Merryweather High, I know this is a lie.
Nobody will even talk to me, let alone listen - all because I called the cops on an end-of-summer party.
But if I could only tell everyone why I called the police that night...
If I could explain what happened to me...
If I could speak...
Then everything might change.
'With the rise of women finding their voices and speaking out about sexual assault in the media, this should be on everyone's radar... Powerful, necessary, and essential.' - Kirkus

'I said no.'
Melinda is an outcast at Merryweather High. Something happened over the summer - something bad - and now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen. So what's the point in speaking at all?
Through her work on an art project, Melinda is finally able to face what really happened that night. But before she can make peace with the ghosts of the past, she has to confront the reality of the present - and stop someone who still wishes to do her harm. Only words can save her. She can't stay silent. Not any more.

Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life that she's never written about before. Described as "powerful," "captivating," and "essential" in the nine starred reviews it's received, this must-read memoir is being hailed as one of 2019's best books for teens and adults. A denouncement of our society's failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts, SHOUT speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice-- and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore.
Now Diana must survive in the world beyond Themyscira for the first time-a world that is filled with danger and injustice unlike anything she's ever experienced.
With new battles to be fought and new friends to be made, she must redefine what it means to belong, to be an Amazon, and to make a difference.
From New York Times bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson (Speak) and acclaimed artist Leila del Duca (Shutter), Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed is a story about growing into your strength, fighting for justice, and finding home.
"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, 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. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether.
Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication.
A timeless novel about consent and finding the courage to speak up for yourself, the twentieth anniversary edition of the classic novel that has spoken to so many young adults now includes a new introduction by acclaimed writer, host, speaker, and cultural commentator Ashley C. Ford as well as an afterword by New York Times-bestselling author of All American Boys and Long Way Down, Jason Reynolds. This edition will also feature an updated Q&A, resource list, and essay and poem from Laurie Halse Anderson.
