I recently had the pleasure of participating in a webinar interview with Hannah Harrington, hosted by Big Honcho Media. Myself and other book bloggers were able to ask Hannah questions about her newest book, Speechless, and other fun questions related to writing and books. Be sure to check out the entire transcript of our webinar interview (Word doc) - there are some great questions and answers!
One of the highlights of the interview was learning about the partnership between Harlequin TEEN and the nonprofit Love is Louder, a movement that started when actress Brittany Snow, MTV, and the Jed Foundation decided to do something to help those feeling mistreated. Hundreds of thousands of people just like you have come together to raise the volume around the message that love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings you down.
Summary of Speechless:
Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret. Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast – and nearly got someone killed. Chelsea has taken a vow of silence – to learn to keep her mouth shut and to stop hurting anyone else.
Speechless explores the real-life teen issues of bullying, mean girls, LGBT awareness and hate crimes. Compared to the many books already out about bullies, Harrington’s novel stands out for its authentic voice and unflinching portrayal of what it means to be part of the bullying. In October 2012, Harlequin TEEN will be releasing a brand new survey that has interviewed 1,500 girls between 13-18 years old on the subject of bullying.
