There was just such a gap between the “bad people” hating Chelsea for what she did and making her life hell – really, are people still that backward, hateful and stuck up in small town USA? She’s not a shallow teenage nightmare, she’s just starting to learn the difference between knowing the path and walking the path yes, I just went Morpheus all over that.

A soapbox moment wouldn’t have been out of place in a high school setting with all its illogical hierarchy and twisted teenage philosophy. Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret. Asha was an intersting character as well, and I would have loved to learn a bit more about her background. It might be that I am a sucker for road trips and epic soundtracks but this was just a bit “le Hannah Harrington’s fans won’t be disappointed by Speechless.

This is a very worthy read.

I loved the emotional punch this book gave me, many, many times. After speaking up in attempt to make up for her outburst, Chelsea decides to take a vow of silence. Do I think this book could have been any better? The end of the novel has a wonderfully triumphant tone to it.


Some people could learn quite a lot from this book, I think. Speechless is relevant and beautifully written, with relatable characters and a perfect romance. It could have been schmaltzy as hell, but just worked out beautifully. But they’re not entirely, completely, like totally wrong, garrington they’re kind of right because it’s really not that bad omg I’m giving this four stars!

If only her new friends can forgive what she’s done.

zpeechless It’s a beautifully written work and I would no doubt look into Harrington’s other works. When she says something, she means exactly what she says.

What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? I am trying so hard not to be that person anymore. One of those mistakes leads to a boy being beaten up and almost dying. The story itself is even better. You see, there is a bit of swearing something I am not overly comfortable with and Chelsea is, to say the least, quite a nasty person.

Her character definitely bugged me in so many ways but when bad things started happening to her it was so easy to sympathize with her situation. I was a huge fan of Saving June and I loved this one as well. Speechless addresses some serious issues for teens and people in general, but still manages to be funny and relatable.

Speechless has the happy coincidence of being made of better stuff, but clearly satisfying on a simpler level. They fail a test or don’t understand an assignment and say I’m not smart. Thank you to the wonderful people at Harlequin Teen Australia for my review copy.

And the more I thought about, the more understood. But Chelsea doesn’t always think about how the other people will accept this information. Hannah Harrington weaved it all intricately, tactfully and powerfully into Speechless.


There is such an issue with bullying in school and on the Internet today, but most people don’t even realize they’re doing it. She is a genuine outspoken, stand-up-for-herself, no-bullshit yannah gal. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Set up a giveaway.

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? I did enjoy the ending, though I can’t help but feel it was a bit too This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell -blog. I have to admit that Saving June still remains to be my favorite Harrington novel, but Speechless is an impeccable sophomore novel regardless. I can actually do something.

See all reviews. But that same manner of speaking is what added to Chelsea’s realism as a young adult.

At least I acknowledge the mistakes I’ve made, and am making. The thing that first drew me to this book was the wonderfully simple cover that from far looks just like a blank paper. Jun 18, Giselle rated it really liked it Shelves:
