Fans of Speak by Laure Halse Anderson and Identical by Ellen Hopkins will love Talk, Donoghue's young adult book reaches new heights in this portrait of sexual abuse. Four lives, two different roads, two destinations: a psychiatric hospital or the morgue. The Hales are an all-American middle-class family on the outside. But behind their masquerade, each member of the family has their own dark secrets. Gemma Donoghue is the author of the Amazon Bestseller Delicate, Fragile and Good Enough.
