Speechless by Hannah Harrington

ISBN: 9781921796579
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pages: 268

Saying she’s sorry just isn’t enough . . .

Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can't keep a secret

Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.

Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she's ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.

But there's strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she's done. If only she can forgive herself.

I received Speechless by Hannah Harrington for review from Netgalley, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading! I found Speechless to be a bit like Pretty Little Liars, because of the classic high school cliques, back-stabbing and gossiping, mixed seamlessly with serious issues such as prejudice. Although I enjoyed reading this book, I didn’t really have a favourite character as the main character Chelsea, (who probably would have been my first choice for my favourite character), was quite selfish and naive - however I found that this was necessary for the story to flow properly. I really like the cover of Speechless, mainly because of its simplicity, but also because it represents the story inside without giving to anything away that isn’t within the blurb!
