Speak by Laurie Anderson was the book that changed my life in High School. Being with Melinda as she started high school, fell into depression, found art, and eventually learned to speak and not be scared anymore was what I needed. Not everyone goes through getting raped like she did, but everyone goes through something. I personally needed to know it was ok to feel things deeply, as long as coping was part of the process.
