Shout, the new memoir-in-verse by Speak author Laurie Halse Anderson brings to life some familiar stories that may ring a bell from the characters in Anderson’s books. Anderson tells her tale from childhood until the present beautifully – especially focusing on the sexual assault she experienced as a teenager. She is honest on the topic and her rage and unapologetic ferocity to the issue of sexual abuse, rape, and the unforgivable way society treats women (and men) who find the courage to come forward and speak the truth is a reality check we all need.
