Romy is trying to deal with her life. She was raped at a party and no one believed her. She just wants to fly under the radar. When her old friend goes missing, Romy struggles with it. Did the town’s golden boys have something to do with it?
I am so angry with the marketing of this book. From the book’s own synopsis, it makes it sound like Romy will be confront the town and her rapist. That is not this book.
This book is quieter. It is a look at Romy trying to survive every day with what happened to her and how different her life is now. This is about her struggling to form new relationships while trying to maintain old ones. This book is a slice of her life with a minor thriller thrown in.
While it was a well written book, it wasn’t the story I was pitched and therefore I was disappointed. If you want a slice of life look into a girl’s life, you might like this. If you are going into this book expecting a triumphant moment where a girl see’s justice for the crimes committed against her, this is not the book for you.
I gave this book a D.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
