Neglecting The Bookshelves Self-Challenge Week Seven

Making progress here! I'm still working through Embassytown. This one might be another book that takes a few weeks. The other books I'm putting on the list for this week:

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
ISBN: 014131088X
Paperback
Source: paperbackswap.com

When Melinda Sordino's friends discover she called the police to quiet a party, they ostracize her, turning her into an outcast -- even among kids she barely knows. But even worse than the harsh conformity of high-school cliques is a secret that you have to hide. 

The Ginger Tree by Oswald Wynd
ISBN: 0060959673
Paperback
Source: public library (book club read)

In 1903, a young Scotswoman named Mary Mackenzie sets sail for China to marry her betrothed, a military attachÉ in Peking. But soon after her arrival, Mary falls into an adulterous affair with a young Japanese nobleman, scandalizing the British community.
