Upon being mistaken for the missing heiress Annabel Winslow, Mary Gray - destitute and at her wit's end - impulsively agrees to pretend to be the other woman in order to carry out a terrible deception. Mary finds it easy to slip into Annabel's comfortable life, so different from her own, but not everyone is convinced by her act - least of all Adam Forrest, Annabel's former lover, who hides secrets of his own... The ivy had reached for the tree, crept up it, engulfed it, till now the trunk was one towering mass of the dark gleaming leaves, and only the tree's upper branches managed to thrust the young gold leaves of early summer through the strangling curtain. Eventually the ivy would kill it. . . The sixth novel of gothic suspense by beloved novelist Mary Stewart, The Ivy Tree is a classic of mistaken identity and unreliable narrators, and features perhaps the author's most complex and exceptional heroine.

The first ten lies they tell you in high school. "Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself. Speak was a 1999 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature.
