Praise for Speak of Me As I Am:

“Debut author Belasco adeptly captures the tribulations of high school life while also celebrating art’s ability to help clarify and contextualize its joys and sorrows. . . . The novel’s most intriguing character . . . is grief itself, which the author illuminates, examines, and dissects with a surgeon’s precision and the gentle touch of an artist. A stirring account of the trials of adolescence.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This book will undoubtedly be compared to Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park. . . . Teens seeking a quieter but no less moving story will find this book a perfect read.” —Booklist

“Never maudlin, always authentic, the portrayal of their struggles to deal with grief and with love will resonate with many teens.” —VOYA

“A good purchase for realistic fiction collections and for readers looking for books about survivor’s guilt and healing.” —School Library Journal 

“Belasco’s novel sends a powerful message about the complicated nature of grief. . . . This powerful, emotional work should be earmarked to be a favorite with teen readers.” —BookPage
