Realistic Fiction Choices
For my summer class I am taking, I recently read Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. This book is tailored for girls in upper middle school and high school. It is a first person narrative, and I think you will really like Melinda's voice as she lets you in to her world with its problems and its slow healing process. Although we may have never been in a situation like hers, I think we can all relate to the feeling of being on the outside looking in at some point! This book, while somewhat painful to read, is very well done and provides an optimistic ending. I think you would enjoy it!
What are some other realistic fiction books you have read recently? Would you recommend them? Why or why not?
