This book is amazingly quick to pull readers in. The story follows a girl in university, living in dorm rooms, failing classes, joining sorority parties, etc, which makes it easy to relate to, and also very real. The story is about her falling in love with a guy, who initially seems dark and mysterious, but later opens up to her.
The theme may seem a little typical of these romantic / chick flick novels, but the author throws in the subject of rape. This is the first time I’ve read about it in a story, but maybe thats because I don’t read alot of these young adult romance novels. Either way, the author illustrates the seriousness of rape, and the aftermath -emotional trauma, and how society may react to someone claiming they were raped. Self defense is actually useful, its better to know how to defend yourself, and never use it.
This book was great to read, I didn’t want to stop reading it! The book is quite short, only a little over 200 pages, so if you’re looking for a short book to fill your time, I recommend this one!
