Speak: The Graphic Novel

Speak: The Graphic Novel - Emily Carroll, Laurie Halse Anderson It's been a while since I read the prose version, but I do think the graphic novel will carry a bigger impact for me as a reader. Anderson's script (unlike many adaptations) isn't scared to work with the art and let it carry a lot of the weight of the storytelling. Carroll is maybe the perfect artist to present this story - she weaves in the horror of Melinda's experience so well, the trauma that she can't speak. Hopefully this will open the book up to a whole new generation of readers.
