This is a quick collegiate read the deals with date rape (in my assumptions) accurately.

Jacqueline and her boyfriend break up almost immediately after they start college together.  She's heartbroken because that's how she identified herself, popular fratboy girlfriend.  After some nagging by her BFF she goes to a party but ditches early.  Bad mistake. Never leave a party alone in the middle of the night.  Jacqueline comes > . < that close to getting raped by another frat boy.  But she doesn't because Lucas, this quiet boy in her stat class, beats the life out of him.

Jacqueline cannot deal so she pretends it didn't happen, refusing to go to the cops or even telling her bestie.

Life goes on in college.  She gets a tutor because her breakup put her in such a funk she began failing a class.  Her and Lucas have a few more run-ins. There's some making out and gossip and fights.

And then it comes back to that one night again.  Because usually, if someone's gonna do it once, they're gonna do it again.

I don't know if it makes sense to say this is a good book when the subject is rape.  So, I'll leave it at, this is a real book.  


  1. Wow. This sounds like a "good" book. Again, it's weird to talk about a good book about rape. But you've made me want to read it.

  2. This book has been on my radar for awhile, though I don't know if I will get to it anytime soon. I like the idea that it is a book that deals with the more serious issues of life.
