Best Reason to Bite Your Tongue:
Speechless by Hannah Harrington

“After Chelsea spills someone else’s secret, she becomes a social outcast. This look at the power and pain that can be caused by casual teen gossip is a do-not-miss.”

Speechless reminded me of my friends because it’s honest and the characters’ flaws were the reason I liked them.” — Maggie S.

“I felt like Chelsea was one of my good friends and I was growing up and figuring things out right beside her.” —Brea T.

“When you’re in high school people are always telling you about how one decision, one moment, can change a life. This book totally captures that reality.” –Caitlyn E.

“Everyone who reads this book will feel like they know Chelsea Knot . . . or ARE Chelsea Knot. This spot-on portrayal of high school gossip, popularity and labeling is one of my top picks for this year.” –Miranda K.

“As soon as I finished this book I wanted to go hug my friends. It’s a strong reminder of how one or two REAL friends can change your life. It made me want to be THAT kind of friend.” –Kaitlin B.

  1. Sounds interesting and I like the theme. I’ll keep this in mind next time I’m looking for a new read!

    On another note, I’m a bit surprised Figment hasn’t said anything yet about NaNoWriMo, we’re getting pretty close…no plotting tips or motivation or ideas?
