Publisher Description

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.

Animition Verse ,

Amazing tear-jerker of a story.

I heard of this book and read it.
i’m so glad i read it.
it speaks up about problems to dangerous to ignore. my physical copy of this has so many pages covered in my tears. this book is so moving and has a special place in my heart. it is compelling to hear a true story about a rape victim and their life after and before speaking about it. i am a rape victim and this book speaks close to me. especially page 52. looking for a place to keep your mind and looking at a peaceful piece to forget what’s happening. but you never really forget it. it’s just the first time out of many catcalls, groping, whispers, that you’ll get.
this book made me cry 4 times in the first hour of reading.
i feel strong emotions for this book. i feel stronger and better knowing it’s not just me. and i hope other readers who’ve experienced rape or sexual assault feel the same way.
speaking up is hard. i feel great love and joy for laurie for saying something about this.
speak up- even if you stutter.
and remember, stay safe girls. please never let anyone buy drinks for you. never go to a secondary location. just stay safe.

We have to take about sexual violence and it starts with awareness. SHOUT is a great start.
