Satisfactory Essays
The book Speak and the film Speak have lots of similarities but, they also have many differences. Overall, both the book and the film follow the same themes. Teen drama, jealousy, speaking out, isolation, and anti-bullying would be a few examples. To break it down even more, in both the movie and the book, Melinda creates her hideaway in the janitors closet, The poster is hung in front of Melinda’s mirror, Melinda passes out before dissecting a frog, and they show how Melinda's appearance improves over the course of time. However, when the book was adapted to a film certain things were changed.
