Anyone that would have to go through something like this is a very strong person. And go pick them both up if you haven’t read Saving June! Do I think this book could have been any better? Chelsea finds herself alone, and those who she thought were friends abandon her to save face.
The moments where Chelsea had “aha” moments about herself, her actions and when she finally stood up for what ultimately got her into the mess were so harrrington. Like you’re doing something the wrong way and the whole speechlwss realizes except you.
But well, there you go. Noah and her love story is more slow and thought-through than Chelsea’s previous actions. This could be a handbook to how character driven YA novels should be written.
However, Speechless really is her best work, in my eyes, with just the right amounts to make it work. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. My two favorite scenes in the book both involved Chelsea interacting with either Noah or Adam, but at the same time, Harrington kept the spotlight on Chelsea, as well as her other finely-developed friends, Asha and Garrington. Her writing flowed effortlessly that before I knew it I was more than half way through the book.
I am now 55 years old but I remember what it was like in high school when your only identity was that which your peers thought you were. Trust ms, you will not regret getting this book. Bannah know this was Chelsea’s story, but I would have loved to read more about Noah’s and Andy’s relationship – so Hannah Harrington, if you ever decide to write this story from their point of view, I’ll definitely buy that book!
Like I said before, Chelsea sticks out her chin, holds her nose up high above her stiff upper lip, and refuses to let the bullying get to her, even though it’s clear to see it is taking an effect on her. So, yeah, I had two options: Right from the beginning of the the book, the author did a great job of describing the characters and making a reader want to find out more.
It just really pronounced the importance of words. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. So when the opportunity came to dish out the juiciest gossip she had ever had – that she had walked in on Noah making out with another guy! Chelsea Knot is probably one YA character with the smallest share of words, but one with the greatest inner developments.
Asha introduces Chelsea to a whole new life – a new job, new friends, and a crush worthy of her affections. She has bite but she doesn’t know where to aim.
And like every kid, Hannah’s character has to learn to not care so much what other people think of her and learn to trust her own self. Because I know there are times, just like for Chelsea in Speechless, when it’s easier to keep your mouth shut and avert your gaze.
Asha, Sam, Andy, Lou and Dex were all great characters and definitely appealing. She’s a sympathetic character and likeable as she goes through changes and develops. Their relationship, although they were perfect for each other, didn’t compete with Jake and Harper from Saving June – who was my favourite couple of any book I read in Her wit and unique opinion on everything was endearing without trying.
I loved the characters, and the depth each and every one of them was provided with for the most part, but more on that later in the review.
But, it did make me flip the last page with a small sigh Speechless is definitely one of the most gorgeous message books I’ve read in a while. Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide. In response, she vows not to sepechless at all. I love how Sam and Chelsea’s realtionship developed, it was gradual and slow but really adorable and cute and sweet.
She wallows in narcissistic self-pity like only a teenager can, but she also recognises it.
