Review: Speechless By: Hannah Harrington

SpeechlessSpeechless by Hannah Harrington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Chelsea Knot has done - her mouth, her need for gossip, her need to fit in - she really opened up her mouth this time.
At a party Chelsea witnesses what she immediately must dish, by doing so she has affected more lives than she thought. When someone gets hospitalized in a hate crime because of her mouth, she shuts it.
Chelsea learns more about herself and the people around her than ever before. From the person she thought was her best friend, to the boy she has had a crush on for over a year - most of all, Chelsea is changing and developing into what she wants to be, not what was expected from her by her peers.
She learns the important message of thinking before speaking, making your words count, and allowing your actions to speak for you. She also learns the importance of forgiveness and that love is more important than hate.

An easy read filled with depth. The growth and development of such a character through self dialogue and the other characters - along with a subject matter that needs to have open discussion, a not to miss read.
