"It's easier not to say anything. Shut your trap, button your lip, can it. All that crap you hear on TV about communication and expressing feelings is a lie. Nobody really wants to hear what you have to say."

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

  10. I loved Speak! I saw the movie recently for the first time and was really bothered by Kristin Stewart. She was NOT at all what I had in mind for the character. She does have the whole awkward thing down.
