Description


Por primera vez en español para el mercado norteamericano, un clásico moderno conmovedor sobre el consentimiento y la capacidad de encontrar el coraje para hablar.

«Alza la voz; queremos oír lo que tienes para decir.»

Desde el minuto uno de su primer año en la Secundaria Merriweather, Melinda sabe que esto es una gran mentira, parte del sinsentido de la secundaria. No tiene amigos, es marginada, porque arruinó una fiesta de finales del verano cuando llamó a la policía, así que nadie quiere hablar con ella, y mucho menos escucharla. Con el paso del tiempo, se aísla cada vez más y prácticamente deja de hablar. El único consuelo lo encuentra en su clase de Arte, y es mediante su trabajo en un proyecto de arte que finalmente es capaz de enfrentar lo que pasó en realidad en esa terrible fiesta.

Su proceso de sanación apenas comienza cuando tiene otro encuentro violento. Pero esta vez, Melinda no se calla.

Laurie Halse Anderson's award-winning modern classic Speak is now in Spanish for the North American market as Habla, translated by Hercilia Mendizabal Frers.
