Sisters, drop everything. Walk away from the lake, leaning on each other‘s shoulders when you need the support. Feel the contractions of another truth ready to be born: shame turned inside out is rage.

"too many grown-ups tell kids to follow
their dreams
like that's going to get them somewhere
Auntie Laurie says follow your nightmares instead
cuz when you figure iht what's eating you alive
you can slay it."
-Laurie Halse Anderson from SHOUT.

Published years after Speak, this memoir in verse reveals the real life roots of that novel. It‘s a tough read but it being in verse gives it a different weight than a traditional memoir. I‘m hoping to find some interviews about why she chose to share her story in this style. It‘s very powerful and shows why Speak resonates with so many readers. #NFNov

I‘m definitely finishing this today. Unless cat naps are contagious. I‘ve never read a memoir in verse before. #NFNov #catsoflitsy

rubyslippersreads Catnaps are totally contagious! 😹💤💤💤 3mo
MallenNC @rubyslippersreads The catnap was contagious but I still finished my book after the nap! My cats are professional sleepers. 3mo

Read this on my flight back home today. Although it has some emotional parts it didn‘t resonate with me. I felt like some parts could have used more emotion. When a verse was emotional, it really grabbed you. I enjoyed overall, but I‘ve read many memoirs that leave a lasting impact. If you haven‘t read Speak I would do that first as there are several references to Speak in Shout. #memoir #poetry #travelreads

First book club meeting of the school year—this is the one a friend & I started to introduce parents to the YA & MG books that are popular in the library & that their kids are excited about. Tagged book was our summer read. I loved it but I‘ve already heard from one parent who hated everything about it. Every. Thing. Looking forward to an interesting discussion!

emtobiasz This is on the long list for the National Book Award (just announced today)! 5mo
TracyReadsBooks @emtobiasz I hadn‘t heard that yet—thanks for telling me! I‘m not surprised. I think it‘s an excellent book. Have you read it? 5mo
emtobiasz I have! I liked it quite a bit. I‘m not sure it would have spoken to me quite as well as a teen— I tended to avoid heavy books at that age. Still, it‘s an excellent memoir for teens who want to learn more about a favorite author and learn the back story behind her novels. 5mo

I'm a big fan of Laurie Halse Anderson, so I had high expectations, but she didn't let me down. This memoir in verse was well worth the read, and she told so many fascinating and moving stories from her life. I intend to revisit this one, and I definitely recommend it.

ferskner I just finished this and immediately wanted to get the audiobook. So good. 8mo
elizabethlk @ferskner do you know who reads the audiobook? I bet it's just as good as the visual read regardless. 8mo
ferskner It looks like she narrates it herself, awesome! 8mo

YUP.

julesG 😀😀 I like Danish, sounds very melodic to me. 8mo
ferskner @julesG I adore it, but as a non-native learner, it definitely has its quirks. :) 8mo
julesG Right there with you. 8mo

“this note about anatomy/ from me to you/is for the remembering/that after you speak/after you shout/your open mouth/will breathe in/the light for which/you‘ve hungered/ and your backbone/will unfurl until/you can again dance/to the beat/of your steadfast heart”
This book is powerful, especially the 2nd part. I like the poetry format, it makes it different than other books about trauma. My favorite book so far of the #BFC ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“scars may look stronger than unwounded skin, but they‘re not
once broken, we‘re easily hurt again, or worse
the temptation is to hide behind shields,
play defense, drown ourselves in sorrow
or drug our way to haunted oblivion
until death erases hope”

My sister let me borrow this and said I have to read it. I‘ve read wintergirls, so I‘m sure it will be good.

I got a big shipment of books in today, which always makes for a happy day 😊😊😊

I ordered these months ago (our business office is terribly slow) so I had completely forgotten about some of them- happy surprises!
