Warning: Rape is discussed in this book.
I LOVE love love this book. This book is great for the YA and teenagers. I will highly recommend this book to anyone.
Marci has written a brutally honest and emotional novel of a young teenager who is learning about herself. She has gone through hell and back. She struggles as she moves back in with her uncle after being an orphan for three years. She struggles with her new neighbors who happened to be her close friends before she became an orphan. She struggles thinking her ex-boyfriend had raped her but it turns out it wasn't the case as she tries to remember who had raped her on that fateful memorial's day at a party. She struggles with the death of her father. This is her year of learning about herself as she realizes that she has to find her truth, face her truth, and speak her truth in order to heal and come out okay.
The book isn't just based on sexual assault. This book focuses on many things that YA and teenagers deal with nowadays. I enjoyed the wry humor from Grace. I was able to relate to her because she was real as real can be.
I promise you won't regret reading this novel.
I'm giving this book a high 4 stars
