Speak Out: Speechless

Speechless is in my TBR pile! I've heard such awesome things about it. Have you heard about it? The cover is so simple - yet so interesting. It makes me curious. It's the perfect book for Bully Awareness Month. Read it and pass it along, I know I'm going to!

About the book
Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret.

Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast – and nearly got someone killed.

Chelsea has taken a vow of silence – to learn to keep her mouth shut and to stop hurting anyone else. There’s strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way. Including a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive her… if only she can forgive herself.

Harlequin Teen has teamed up with Love is Louder (a project of the Jed Foundation, MTV, and actress Brittany Snow) for the release and the book will feature a back page with information about the movement.

Watch the trailer:

About Love is Louder:

Love is Louder was started by The Jed Foundation, MTV and Brittany Snow to support anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone. It’s hundreds of thousands of people just like you who have turned this idea into a movement.  A movement of all types of people who have come together to raise the volume around the message that love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings us down.

Individuals, communities, schools and organizations have embraced Love is Louder as a way to address with issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression.  Even as we work to stop negative words and actions that hurt us, we can strengthen our abilities to cope with hard times, focus on the positive, support the people around us and reach out for help if we need it.
