I don't know how to rate this or to even think about this. And I'm not writing a full review. There is too much to say, but also too much NOT to say. I've just got 3 words.
Heavy. Don't read this book unless you know what you are in for - a dark, steamy read about the horrible topic of rape. Also know that this book is so well-written that you will feel like you are in the place of the main character. I went into part of the same state of denial that Ben did, and chances are that you will as well.
Annoyance. Sometimes, throughout the book I got really annoyed at the characters because I saw the right choice, but they didn't and they didn't fix it. Don't be fooled by the first 35%. People change.
Understanding. I know so much more about this topic than I knew before, perhaps more than I wanted to know. But, it gives me a better understanding of what to do in my life if I ever come across anything like this, and I have the sympathy for others who have and will.
Recommended for ages 16+.
