Speak Chapter 22

By Laurie Halse Anderson

Chapter 22


  • Melinda is walking in the hall, and she sees someone she refers to as "IT" in the hall, walking with a cheerleader.
  • She can't believe IT goes to this high school. This is not a dream she can wake up from.
  • "IT sees [Melinda]. IT smiles and winks" (22.2).
  • Melinda would vomit, except her "lips are sewn together" (22.2).
  • This chapter ends with a look at Melinda's report card. She gets an A in Art, a B in Biology, a C and a D in Lunch and Clothes, and Cs in most everything else.
