Speak Loudly

I bought this book a few months ago in my YA binge after it came highly recommended.

It deals with teenage rape and the ramifications.

So imagine my outrage this week when I discovered someone (took me a while not to post something stronger) wants to ban it.

Here's my lovely agent's take on it.

And from the author herself.

Am truly left shaking my head over this.

hey - I read this last night - meant to read just one chapter and didn't turn the light out 'til I'd finished. Fantastic book. The idea of it being banned is just crazy.
I spent an age on LHA's blog yesterday too ad discovered her 'write for 15 minutes a day' programme and loved the writing prompts - started it yesterday - just to stretch the creativity sideways for a while. She's an awesome writer :)

Must go check out more of her blog when I have time, Nat.
Thanks for the tip!
