Book Review: Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Now that Chelsea has seen the error of her ways she decides to take a vow of silence. That was until it caused a terrible and heavy consequences and she vowed to never speak again. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed. Asha introduces Chelsea to a whole new life – a new job, new friends, and a crush worthy of her affections.


One aspect I absolutely did not enjoy in Saving June wpeechless the constant, irrepressible presence of the writer.

Speaking before thinking gets her in trouble so she writes on a whiteboard. She’s always known that she has a big mouth and decides to do the world a favor by taking a vow of silence.

And everyone else too. Since bullying plays a major part in this novel, let’s take a break to look at that. This could be a handbook to how character driven YA novels should be written. I’ll admit that I wasn’t endeared to Chelsea because of how she uses her gossip to pull strings and manipulate others into doing what she wants.

Speechless 2 20 Sep 06, Until one day when her thoughtless behaviour nearly gets someone killed and she decides to take a vow of silence to find back to her old self again.

You can be surrounded by people and still be lonely. We are not perfect, after all. I honestly don’t quite know how to put my feelings about this book down in words as I always do the books I love. And not-so good describes just that.

Harringtn speaking up in attempt to make up for her outburst, Chelsea decides to take a vow of silence. Sam made me melt as fast as his famous tuna melts, and Asha was such a cutie It takes strength to show someone kindness and understanding and forgiveness. I think I’ll get it out point wise. This is a disappointment because I always assumed that a perfect creature such as Brendon would smell of spring rain and mountain bresses and other heavenly aromas.

Unlike Bella Swan and every other YA protagonist that followed her, Chelsea likes being popular and using the power that comes with it. Sixteen year old Chelsea Knot lives in Michigan. His smile is like floodlights, lighting up everything.

Because nobody is perfect.
