'I understand what you meant by the comment. That’s not what I’m asking. I’m asking, why did you put it up on the internet?'
And this was the humiliating part. Because there was no good reason for it. 'I just hoped people might think it was funny.'
Winter Halprin has her life figured out. She's a spelling-bee champion, has a great group of friends, super- supportive parents and a place at her dream college. But when a wayward comment online about the winner of a spelling bee goes viral, her whole world is turned upside down. The entire internet has turned against her, and everything is falling apart.
Knowing she has to make herself a better person, Winter turns to REVIBE, a rehabilitation facility for people who have been publicly shamed online. But she finds herself frozen and unable to apologize for what she has done. How can you apologize when you can't even put pen to paper any more, when you're scared of the power of your own words? How can you apologize when you're not even sure it's your fault?
If You Don't Have Anything Nice To Say is the thought provoking novel from multi award winning author, Leila Sales
