SPEECHLESS by Hannah Harrington | Kirkus Reviews

Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: Except even in the movie of my own life, I’ve never been the heroine. All because Chelsea couldn’t keep her mouth shut. You can be the most popular person in the school, envied by every girl and wanted by every boy, and still feel completely worthless. Homework I cannot even understand.
