This book is terrible.
Terrible terrible terrible. I mean seriously. I never expected to read such a bad book in my life. The dialogue is terrible, Melinda is a very shallow, boring character, and the book is overall just a boring, somewhat depressing exercise in all the same YA cliches. If books were food, Speak would be a chemical detergent.

Read the article to understand what it's about, one reads reviews linked to an article for an opinion, not a plot summary.

And calling an average YA novel pretty much unknown outside the USA "a literary masterpiece" is going a bit far, isn't it?
But I must say that this review is not very helpful. It says nothing about what is wrong with this book in your opinion - just that it's boring. Writing something that short isn't worth the time spent doing it.
