F- Fighting Back and Characters From YA Books




ighting back and standing up



Standing up for one's self and fighting back can be hard, but it is important to advocate for one's self.

One person can make a difference. Be the change.


Here is a great character who gains strength to stand up for herself and her friend...







Melinda from Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson is a weak character who gains strength to overcome her past, and stand up for not only herself, but her friend as well. Speak is a story of empowerment. 









Don't Forget about the power of three!!!
