Synopsis

Speak Up! by Halley Bondy

School is a tough time for nearly everyone, but it can be especially hard on girls. Between social and cultural pressures, academic challenges, family dynamics, changing hormones, and a growing awareness of the world around them, school girls often end up feeling voiceless and powerless. They can struggle with speaking in class, standing up for their beliefs, navigating complicated social situations, and getting their voices heard. By presenting real issues and scenarios that girls will recognize from their own day-to-day lives, as well as exploring the negative thoughts and feelings that can hold them back, Speak Up supplies girls with the tools they need to understand their feelings and speak up in any situation.

Reviews

[A] well-organized and well-rounded self-help book that addresses the difficulties of being a girl in middle school. --VOYA Bondy clearly undestands the struggles young girls face, and provides timely and easy-to-understand advice for each. As the title implies, Bondy helps young girls find their voices and express themselves in constructive ways. --School Library Connection
