Melody has really outdone herself with this book! Not only does she handle the first person point of view beautifully within its pages, she handles the topic so incredibly well that I’m blown away. Date rape is a very real danger in the life of today’s teens (and that threat doesn’t end when you hit 20 either!).
The main character, Haley, shows the reader what it’s like through her eyes, and the incredible struggle to overcome the brokenness that such a trauma leaves in a life. Accountability and forgiveness are important elements of this story and so beautifully handled.
I would recommend this not only for young adults but also for any adult who remembers what it was like to be a teenager – the insecurity, uncertainty, peer pressure of trying to fit in and belong while balancing what we’ve been taught to be right. Excellent read!
