I have a problem with sexual assault scenes in books and movies... See I am a victim of a sexual assault. The only reason I can admit that here is because I have had years of therapy and it's been 16 years since it happened. My problem with these scenes is that it is hard for an author to write things like this and make it feel real BUT (huge but) when they do get it right it can be a PTSD trigger for some. I know I am COMPLETELY biased in my review of this scene because of my personal experiences. My main problem with the scene in the book is it felt like the severity was lessened. I know everyone handles these things different but I find it very hard to believe one would joke about almost getting raped the next day..but humor is some peoples defense mechanism so it's possible! Plus it was hard to believe that a girl as petite as Karyn could fight off her attacker as well. But adrenaline is a crazy thing and people can lift cars sometimes when put in certain situations. I am not saying this one scene makes the book bad... It's just hard for me to not let my personal feelings get in the way of the story. I wish it would have focused a little on her recovery and not just acted like she just ignored what happened. I also wish that they would have discussed James trial maybe because if he didn't plead guilty she would have had to testify... Sexual assault is scary and every where if you are someone you know has gone through this traumatic thing know that you are not alone! There is help out there for you!

Thirty Happens was an extremely well written women’s fiction that left me feeling happy and satisfied as I got to the ending. I found it to be very thought-provoking as well, in several different areas. I really connected with Karyn on her love of writing, and thought the reporter scenes that we were privy too quite enjoyable. And as someone who is enjoying her last year in her twenties, I could understand even more what Karyn was going through and her thought processes, because I ask myself a lot of the questions she did as well. Highly recommend.
Karyn Jenson is a 29 year old woman, that is soon to be married and has the job of reporting for her local newspaper. But that isn't what she had in mind for herself. We follow along as she reminisces about everything that led her to this point in her life. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the sad all culminate to place her where she is. The prestigious internship at one of the top newspapers, the highest honor of college graduates, the position offered as permanent for the paper, the devastation of personal hardships, and finally making a choice that no one should ever be asked to make. Her friends and family are a Crack up and definitely play a big part in this story. 4 beautiful stars to Elizabeth Butts for telling this funny, heartbreaking at times, and honest story of a person that finds herself staring at 30 and wondering what happened!!
