A major gold star sticker reward is earned due to the handling of political info. How often has politics been presented to you resulting in your feeling more confused and brain-fried than when you started? Lo, and behold, Don’t Speak is not one of those moments. The points are digestible and you’ll find perspective and empathy in the positions presented. Politics. Plots. Perspective. Parenting. A lot of Ps, huh?! Be Patient. The paragraphs unfold in this unpredictable thriller.
Sidenote: You’ll absolutely love Jade Harrington.
Truly, there aren’t any negatives or dislikes that I find fault with. The characters, with their biased opinions, will fuel your own passions on sensitive subjects, such as abortions, social and income inequality, and misogyny. Don’t Speak aids in your understanding that your speech can and will cause a reaction. Be mindful of what slips past your lips. It can be the difference between life and death.
I highly recommend this read!!!
