SPEECHLESSThe story of a girl named Chelsea Knot who takes a voluntary oath of silence after her gossip-mongering ways yield unexpected consequences...
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY:
"An absorbing drama about what happens when one of the popular girls becomes the target of her former friends' bullying... Harrington draws a convincing portrait of the nastiness involved in the personal attacks against Chelsea, especially as the girl realizes how cruel she has been to others in the past. The story works well as an argument against bullying that reaches young readers in their own world. Timely and affecting." - Kirkus Book Reviews
"Among the many books about bullies, Harrington’s stands out for its authentic voice and unflinching portrayal of what it means to be part of the bullying. [...] In Chelsea, Harrington has created a powerful, strong-willed character, portraying her with true-to-life complexity. Even at her most unlikable, Chelsea never ceases to be fascinating." - Publishers Weekly
