    Powerful This is Laurie Halse Anderson's autobiography and she delivers it in a direct way through poetry and verse It comes across as simply telling her tale with no emotion and for me it had a huge emotional impact for me the reader I find that works well if the author is just giving facts and let the reader feel the emotions The last half of the book Laurie discusses her book Speak which came out 20 years ago and has started

Content warnings include sexual assault PTSD war physical abuse fat shaming alcohol and other drug use This is the story of a girl who lost her voice and wrote herself a new one I expect I m one of the only ones reading SHOUT before they ve read Speak I ve had Speak on my I absolutely have to read this book list for as long as I can remember but still haven t read it I searched my local library for it but they don t own it I tried for several years to buy it on Kindle but it wasn t available to purchase in my country I just checked and it s still not an option I finally bit the bullet and added it to my Book Depository order last year and it s been looking at me ever since from my shelf uietly asking me why I haven t opened its pages Honestly It s intimidated me It s the book about sexual assault and while I ve read so many others I think I ve worried about what it will bring up for me when I do finally read it So long story slightly shorter my plan is to SHOUT then Speak and then SHOUT again I m interested to see if my perspective on SHOUT changes after I ve read Speak I guess time will tellThe first section of this book is essentially memoir in free verse Laurie takes the reader on a journey through a series of childhood memories a father haunted by war when alcohol isn t numbing his memories a mother silenced her own experiences of school work and surviving sexual assault I really loved reading about Laurie s experience as an exchange student in Denmark and would happily devour as much information as I could about those 13 months what I ve read has sparked an interest in Danish cultureThe second section which begins almost two thirds of the way through the book broke my heart as Laurie shared just a handful of stories about her interactions with other survivors whose young bodies have been invaded and lives changed most often by those they know and should have been able to trust Although this section made me cry one of the things that got to me the most was something hopeful the colourful ribbons tied to fences in Ballarat Australia in support of the abused which ultimately created Loud Fence The images of those ribbons of support broke me This section includes responses from readers students who have heard Laurie speak teachers and librarians those who need to share their story those who don t understand what was so bad about Melinda s experience in Speak those who want to censor inappropriate reading materialI m not sure how to sum up the third section other than to say that it was the shortest section but also the one in which I shed most tears Laurie s final poems about her parents simply gutted meAlthough it s clearly stated in the blurb I still hadn t thought there d be as much memoir as there was in this book I d expected a greater percentage of poems to be directly addressing sexual assault even though there are plenty that do When my expectations didn t line up with reality I thought I d be disappointed but I wasn t and I m already ready for a reread I expect that I will revisit this book each time I read one of Laurie s books that are mentioned here to search out her favourite scenes and glimpses of the story behind the storyThere s a vulnerability here and it s entwined with strength determination courage resilience and so much compassion While I finished this book with a contented sigh I m still yearning for Luckily for me as this is the first of Laurie s books that I ve read shame on me I still have plenty to exploreThank you Laurie Halse Anderson for sharing some of your life in this book for breaking my heart growing my empathy giving me so many amazing passages to highlight and inspiring me I will see you on Ultima ThuleThank you so much to NetGalley and Viking an imprint of Penguin Random House LLC for the opportunity to read this book
