am a survivor. Half the time I felt as if I were reading parts of my life. The story gripped me from the synopsis straight to the end. It's so important that young girls, women understand that telling is the most important thing you can do! Keeping your assaulters secret only gives them power over you and their next victim. Call the police, tell a parent, get help. This book very much so stressed this fact. There were moments I wanted to shake the FMC. And moments I just wanted to hug her. I honestly had an OMG! Jae dropping, holy crap moment in this story and I believe you will too. 5 stars and a standing ovation for the author and this book!!!! Great twists and turns too. It'll keep you guessing until the end!!!! A true must read!
This time we are introduced to her lead female character Dakota - described as the popular girl at school. McHeyzer weaves and crafts a great story all the while pushing her readers to consider gritty social and moral issues such as date rape, sexual assault, cyber bullying, sexual harassment.
I think this works so well within the backdrop of a high school (YA market) because when I was a teenager I recall yearning for answers on social issues of complexity such as gender expectation. A spoiler is a pertinent scene McHeyzer gives readers which highlights this perfectly over a discussion of what "good girls" and "nice girls" would do. When realistically, teenagers are in the prime of a hormonal implosion which can cloud their judgements, values and viewpoint.
I'm not sure if it deliberate or not, but McHeyzer, as she did in Ugly, made me think what would I do in this characters situation? There is the rational and logical viewpoint such as seeking intervention and support, but more importantly, as McHeyzer provides her readers her characters turmoil of what road to take, what action to undergo is engaging to readers.
I found myself at several points quite emotionally distressed for the character, and i enjoyed the key scene changes McHeyzer provides readers. I also think they serve to reinforce and flesh out Dakota's development of her own discernment and self awareness, and these are relevant themes to both teenagers and adults alike.
I really enjoyed (but it made me cry) the relevance of the school Gym scene and the way in which the characters explained the statistics not only to the audience, but also to readers. This was rounded out in the ending. I love when a book resonates so much with me that I can't help but want to shout about it.
I think McHeyzer might have just written her best work to date. Thoroughly enjoyable read
