Speak Now: Marriage Equality on Trial

Speak Now: Marriage Equality on Trial by Kenji Yoshino

Speak Now is the story about the trial of Proposition 8, the law that was passed in California that banned gay marriage. Like many people, I followed the case with intrigue and curiosity. I didn’t know or understand a lot of what was going on at the time, at this book really helps clarify and explain everything. Yoshino not only delves deeper into explaining the trial, but he adds his own personal story and experiences which strengthens the book. He also includes historical background when necessary which I think really helps the reader understand the trial. While he begins the story explaining his point of view and which side of the trial he falls, I never once felt I was being persuaded to agree with his opinion. He writes with honesty and presented both sides very well. It is clear, concise and well written. 5/5
