You see that face right there That was what my face looked like when I finished reading this book eight minutes ago Yeah That s right I used a carrot This book doesn t even deserve a real arrow What was Anderson thinking when she decided to write this book Maybe thisHmm let s see Maybe I ll write a book about a nerdy preacher daughter who really loves science and math She s only going to apply to MIT since she s all smart and everything And then she ll get rejected and be devastated Oh And then meanwhile she can have these neighbors whose house burned down And since her father s a preacher they ll have to live with her Oh And guess what else The daughter in that family will be Kate s that s what her name will be arch nemesis And they ll have to get along Ah Too simple Someone has to die But who Thinking Oh I know We ll just kill off the little brother He ll get electrocuted to death That s pretty good But wait there has to be another twist This brother could be the actual son of the nemesis Teri her name will be Yeah and to top it off it ll be by her father WHOANot I m sorry if I m giving away spoilers But really come on It clearly says on the first page summary and i uote 4 Death FictionSomeone has to die And you might as well know now that it was the little brother I didn t mind the writing style at all I enjoy how Anderson writes The thing was nothing was even resolved I know that in real life often times things don t have a happy ending But this book didn t even have a sad ending It didn t have anything There was a lot of moping around going on in this book Kate would mope Teri would mope And the worst part to me about everything was when Teri stole Kate s watch I didn t even like Kate she s stupid for only applying to one darn school but i was ticked off for her AND she stole the necklace Things like that get on my nerves Sigh This is just like that darn Twisted book Same author Same none plot Sigh Sigh Sigh Okay let me stop I m beginning to sound like the characters in this book Too late

Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson is a seuelcompanion to Speak It s set one year after the events of Speak This novel is narrated by Kate Malone straight A senior science and math whiz and daughter of the local reverend Kate s also a great runner which is good because Kate s been running from a lot of thingsKate has been the family caretaker since her mother died She hasn t been sleeping as she waits to hear from her dream college she runs instead And now Teri Litch Kate s nemesis and Terry s little brother are living with the Malones Kate tries to ignore all of these problems by running and keeping her head in the sand Besides things couldn t get any worse Until they doYou ll have to read the book to figure out what happens next because I don t do spoiler reviewsSo now we can talk about the book in technical terms The book is broken up into elements solid liuid gas and features uotes from an AP Chem prep book Most of them are straightforward enough to be understandable and relate to the story Kate also makes use of scientific elements for her narration without being overly scientific AKA confusingboringI greatly admire Laurie Halse Anderson She s a great writer and she never comes off as smug or pompous in her interviews at the back of her books Even better Anderson is a fresh voiceThat said the voice here was not as fresh as it was in Speak In other words Kate s narration sounds a lot like Melinda even though they are completely different characters That bothered me I like that Anderson s prose is so snappy and often sarcastic but it was weird having two disparate characters narrate in almost the same voice Given the connection between these two books I suppose comparisons are inevitable so I ll finish the thought Melinda is a likable narrator than Kate That makes a differenceIronically the increased dialogue in this book Melinda does not talk throughout most of hers doesn t make the characters developed The minor characters particularly Sara and Travis remain flat developed enough to be uirky but not present enough to be memorable This might be because Kate s social circle is larger giving Anderson characters to fit into the narrativeThe other thing to bear in mind about Catalyst is that it is not the same kind of book as Speak Kate s path throughout the narrative and her way through her problems is very different than Melinda s If you haven t guessed yet Kate s path involves a lot of running This book also has a different appeal Speak seemed universal the scope for Catalyst is narrow Anderson does a great job of capturing the anxiety and drama that surrounds the college applicationacceptance process She also creates a compelling study of the silent overachiever that seems to be at every high school More importantly Anderson shows that those achievements don t always come without a costOverall Catalyst is a good book I enjoyed it and I would recommend it But Speak was a great book that was overall powerful than its seuelYou can find this review and on my blog Miss Print
