A New York Times bestseller and one of 2019's best-reviewed books, a poetic memoir and call to action from the award-winning author of Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson!Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life that she's never written about before. Described as "powerful," "captivating," and "essential" in the nine starred reviews it's received, this must-read memoir is being hailed as one of 2019's best books for teens and adults. A denouncement of our society's failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts, SHOUT speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice-- and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore.

"Narrator and author Laurie Halse Anderson reflects upon the trials of her life in a dynamic voice. And in a unique way, her powerful, poetic memoir advocates for others who have faced similar hardships. Listeners gain insight into the experiences and figures that influenced her debut novel, SPEAK, which brought the difficult topic of teen rape to the forefront of conversation and remains important to this day for new generations. The raw emotion that listeners hear in Anderson's voice, especially towards the end, when she literally shouts for a call to action, makes this audiobook a necessary and engaging listen for teens.
