Teaser Tuesday[34]: Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Had a long weekend (since there was a holiday, plus my class for Tuesday was canceled), which was fantastic. Spent it with family and friends; not the most relaxing, but still fun. Plus, I went to the bookstore and got so many books, which is the best.
Here’s what I’m reading right now:
U.S. cover-- actually very pretty in person.
Speechless by Hannah Harrington
Genre: YA Contemporary (Light Romance?)
Publisher: HarlequinTeen
Publish Date: August 28th, 2012

Goodreads Synopsis:

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.


“Friday used to be the best day of the week because it hailed the start of a weekend of partying and shopping and blowing off homework in favor of hanging out with Kristen and everyone else. Now Friday is my favorite day for a different reason. It means I get two full days of blissful peace where I don’t even have to think about school.” (Paperback, pg. 106)

“’You were supposed to be my friend,’ she says, her voice tight and strained with a mixture of anger and hurt. ‘You should’ve told me.’” (Paperback, pg. 107)

So, let me know in the comments what you’re reading right now!
