Speak Chapter 81 Summary

Hairwoman No More

  • Hairwoman has a totally new look – short, black, spiked hair and new glasses.
  • Melinda is really curious about what caused this change.
  • It's rumored that Hairwoman changed just to create confusion during final essay time.
  • Melinda thinks it's something personal.
  • Maybe she's seeing a nice psychiatrist or maybe someone bought the novel she's been working on forever.
  • Melinda wonders if she'll be seeing Hairwoman in summer school.
