"Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can't keep a secret

Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast—and nearly got someone killed.

Now Chelsea has taken a vow of silence—to learn to keep her mouth shut, and to stop hurting anyone else. And if she thinks keeping secrets is hard, not speaking up when she's ignored, ridiculed and even attacked is worse.

But there's strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way—people she never noticed before; a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive what she's done. If only she can forgive herself."

1st off. Speechless obviously reminded me of Speak. Yet, I preferred this story better. I found Speechless to be an actually sweet tale of not only learning your lesson, but being the bigger person. I was so happy when Chelsea made the decision to be a bigger person and to do the right thing. Since, nothing drives me more crazy than when I watch a Lifetime movie about teenagers who constantly makes stupid decisions, that could have been prevented if they had talked.

As for the Speechless part and the revenge part. I actually wish this would have gone on longer. It would have added more to the story all around. Especially since the friendships and relationships that Chelsea does form most likely would not have occurred in a months period and that part just seems unrealistic to me.

However. I do find Chelsea's relationship with who I will call Mystery boy to be adorable and it did warm my heart. Besides wishing the book was a longer, I did enjoy it and this could be a universally liked book.
