Grace is the school outcast. The entire student body as well as the rest of the community believes she is the girl who cried rape. Ian once had a crush on Grace but when she hooked up with his best friend, he knew she was off limits. When a week long detention forces them together they both must have to find a way to survive it.
Argh this book was so frustrating. I did not expect this book to be told in two point of views. I thought this was a going to be a book following Grace as she tries to deal with the aftermath of her rape.
Instead this book also had Ian’s POV. He is best friends with the boy allegedly attacked Grace and is unsure about how he feels about her. I am not a fan of Ian. I thought he was a stereotypical dude bro for the majority of this book. He is very dismissive of Grace’s assault. He refuses to acknowledge her around his friends. He is just such a waffler.
While I enjoyed Grace’s POV, I just couldn’t make sense of her affections for Ian.
I thought this was about a girl dealing with a traumatic event but instead I got a story about a boy who is reluctant to believe a girl over his best friend until he tries to save her.
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.
