Speak Chapter 32 Summary

Wombats Rule

  • Heather convinces Melinda to come to the Winter Assembly with her. Heather's a little sad that the Marthas didn't invite her to sit with them, even though she has the matching outfit. The highlight of the outfit is a sweater with a Santa Clause on it.
  • As an early Christmas present, Heather gives Melinda some earrings which are bells. Melinda will need to get Heather a present now, maybe a friendship necklace.
  • The vote is in – now the school mascot is the Merryweather Wombats.
  • Melinda kind of likes that. She hears some cheerleaders trying unsuccessfully to find words that rhyme with "wombat."
