The Rabbit represents Melinda as the prey and Andy Evans as the wolf / predator. Every time she sees Andy Evans, she keeps on running away from him and her feelings of shame, fear, anger, and anguish bursts her mind. The rabbit symbolizes a victim by the wolf, which is so weak and vulnerable.
The tree represents Melinda's artwork and on how she live in her miserable life; in relation with others and to herself. This symbolizes the progression of her life. The tree is an art where art is about making mistakes and learning from them. This best represent Melinda for regretting all her life full with pain and anguish but then learn from it by speaking up to other people and by that she became strong and can stand up for herself at the end of it all.
The apple represents Melinda's past in which she had good memories with her parents. Much like of the apple, it has a positive mindset, fresh as an innocent baby. This symbolizes happiness for her before the incident happened in the party.
by Laurie Halse Anderson
It is easier not to say anything. Shut your trap, button your lip, can it. All that crap you hear on TV about communication and expressing feelings is a lie. Nobody really wants to hear what you have to say.
Melinda is the root / young star of the novel Speak.
Since she's also the narrator, everything we learn about the other characters is filtered through her. Melinda is very perceptive and bright, but her vision is sometimes clouded by her suffering.
She begins ninth grade friendless and depressed. After Melinda calls the police at a party in August, her former friend group ditches her and disintegrates. The remainder of the student body dislikes her for being a snitch. No one, however, knows Melinda’s biggest secret, the reason she dialed 911 over the summer--a senior named Andy Evans raped her while she was drunk at the party. Horrified and upset in the aftermath, the first thing Melinda thought to do was to call for help. She spends the school year reliving the party, facing the reality of what happened, and growing into a new, healthier person. By the end of ninth grade, Melinda finds her voice and learns to speak.
These three are the chosen symbols that represents Melinda.
