Powerful This is Laurie Halse Anderson s autobiography and she delivers it in a direct way through poetry and verse It comes across as simply telling her tale with no emotion and for me it had a huge emotional impact for me the reader I find that works well if the author is just giving facts and let the reader feel the emotions The last half of the book Laurie discusses her book Speak which came out 20 years ago and has started a movement of women speaking up about their experiences In our treatment rooms we are told that 60 percent of every women walking in our door has been raped of sexually abused at some point in their life We are told we don t need to dig it up but assume that something happened It s obvious that women have to deal with so much We need to do a better job in teaching men in how to interact with women regarding sex Laurie gets to the point and she doesn t shy away from the stories thousands of girls tell her and what is happening and how teen boys don t understand In every high school she visit boys ask her why girls are upset and they are genuine and not being an ass They don t understand it seems that no really means stop no She wrote about for men about this called Twisted and I want to read that now It was written after all these guys wanted to understand the outrage Many people have been through a tough childhood and Laurie is among them She has a strong voice now and it seems to have empowered her She also talks about school boards wanting to keep books like Speak out of their libraries because they want to shield their kids from the subject but what Laurie sees is that all that stuff still happens Kids need information to know how to deal with situations and how to get help is something does happen This was a great book and I have to say that Laurie has gone up on my Author s of respect page and I will be reading by her
