Win a copy of Speechless by Hannah Harrington. Carrie Pilby Caren Lissner. What can I do, hanjah Wanting to please her popular, mean girl best friend Kristen, Chelsea has carelessly destroyed numerous reputations and relationships by spreading rumours and gossip – unconcerned and uncaring about what that meant for the people in question.

Realization also comes from the undeserved kindness of others: I loved Sam, Asha and the whole gang. Separate these two books in your mind and then go out to grab a copy of Speechless. Unlike Bella Harringto and every other YA protagonist that followed her, Chelsea likes being popular and using the power that comes with it.

Yet, Harrington never portrays Chelsea in this light and maintains that she is simply a teenage girl trying to find her way in the labyrinth of life. Refresh and try again. The romance was very well done. I got this book 2 years ago, and I’m just now writing a review because I am still in love with this story.

What irked me a bit in hhannah area, though, were Chelsea’s parents – after what her daughter went through they were so concerned about her decision to take a vow of silence, would they really not care when she stayed out late every night without telling them harringtom she was?

Sometimes people act like snobs, okay. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. She is smart and strong and confident, all while being insecure and unsure of her self and sucking at math. Chelsea Knot loves to gossip.
